Want a change? Try this.

A real change comes when we pay more attention to time and what goes into time.

There is no doubt that we all want to see a change in our lives and particularly in certain things that matter to us. And in our attempts to create a change in those areas of life that matter to us, we may sometimes feel like we require a major turn of events. I have felt that way many times but what I found is that, in most cases, a real change won't come as a result of a major event.

What often seems like a major event to us is nothing but the outcome of a consistent activity over a period of time. Therefore, a real change comes when we pay more attention to time and what goes into time.

A real change comes from a timeline of consistent activities.

So, if you're trying to make a change in your work, life or anything that matters to you, I recommend these simple steps:
Decide the change you want to see and write it down. We cannot realize anything until we have successfully defined it, so, be clear on the change you want to see.
Decide on a timeline for the realization of this change. Life is full of projects, some small, some big and like every real-world project, nothing gets done without a timeline.

Decide to commit to a daily, weekly or monthly consistent activity required for this change to become a reality. Without a commitment to a consistent activity, all we have is time to wait until we reach the end of our timeline. And when we wait and do nothing, nothing happens. But by doing something consistently in the direction of the change we desire, we build momentum towards the realization of that change.

“The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” ― Confucius

And one day, we wake up and experience that major life event (better health and fitness, financial security, or a successful business, etc)–except that it isn't a major event–it's the big impact resulting from a defined timeline of smaller stages of consistent activities.
Whatever change you desire today, know that it is possible and within reach, and all in good time. So, here's to realizing those changes that matter to you!
