I want to talk about thinking in 10 year increments. What does it mean
thinking in 10 year increments?
Well, the idea is to help you to stop beating yourself up because a lot of people are upset about the lack of progress because they're comparing themselves with the yesterday's version of themselves, or the last week's version of themselves. And if you take your life and you check, compare yourself today with last week, most likely you’ll be disappointed, because there hasn't been that much progress in your life since last week, since yesterday. You haven't changed that much in personality, you haven't made that much more money, you haven't built that much more business, because it hasn't changed that much.
That's why a lot of people get discouraged so quickly, because they're checking very short distance of time, and they compare this, “Oh, I've been at this for two weeks, I've been at this for two months and my life hasn't changed.” And, and they quit. A lot of people, they quit and stop doing something because they don't see the progress. But the problem is because they're comparing themselves to a very short time distance. Instead, what I would like to advise you is think in 10 year increments.
If you compare yourself today, with yourself 10 years ago, how huge a leap have you made over the last 10 years? Most likely, massive, right? In the last 10 years, your life probably has changed incredibly, your income probably has gone up, your relationships might have changed, your health might have changed, your physical shape might have changed. Like you probably have made a huge change within the last 10 years. And that is a great comparison because now you say, “Oh my gosh, yeah, my income has improved. 10 years ago, I don't know, I was making a lot less money that I'm making right now. And I was doing a lot harder jobs than I do right now.”
So when you compare yourself to last week, it looks like, “Oh, I'm not making any progress. Oh, it's so discouraging. It's so boring.” But if you compare yourself to 10 years ago, you go, “Oh, my God, I made a huge progress.” And exactly the same way when you're planning your goals, you should again think in the next 10 year increments. Where would you like to be in 10 years? Because then again, it should be a matter leap from now and then.
Because again, sometimes when people are setting goals for next week, or next month, it's great, but it's such a short period of time. So they don't believe that they can change very much in that short period of time. But if you set 10 year goal goals, now, it's a big enough period of time for you to believe that, yeah, I could do that. I could 10X my business, I could increase my income, I could do this, that and the other because it's a lot of time. So you can have a much bigger vision and much bigger goals in order to set for the future. And most likely, you will hit them if you follow through.
So it's a simple idea of thinking in these 10 year increments, but I thought it's quite genius in reducing the anxiety, in reducing the disappointment, in reducing this anxiousness that, “Oh, my life is not moving ahead. I'm not progressing.
