We’re biologically programmed to follow the masses. Centuries ago, conformity to the majority was essential for our survival. The ability to question established methods and find new ways of looking at old ideas is one of the most sought-after qualifications & skills in all fields. It’s a superpower that allows us to see things that others miss.
Yet this super power is becoming increasingly rare as it demands us to move out of the “known” and comfort zone. Individuals and organizations plant their lightning rod where lightning struck last and wait for it to strike again. This worked once, so let’s do it again. We keep repeating same strategies hoping for results. Over time, imitation makes the original obsolete. This is one of the most prominent reasons why people fail – we want to design our future basis past. We want something new and different then it cannot be from the molds of old.

Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.” -Jim Rohn
We all are products of a process – the process of our thinking, the process of our doing certain things or not doing, or doing or not in a certain way. Success and failure are not accidental. They are outcomes of consistent acts of diligence or negligence. Why do dreams get lost before turning into reality? Why many goals remain as wishes?
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
Ironically, faculties like thinking, concentration, setting and achieving goals, imagination and being disciplined are just expected without being taught – neither at home nor in education institutes.
We all fondly plan and design offices, homes and other things – let us plan and design our lives intentionally using our mind and its faculties.
We produce what we conceive – bridge the gap between thought to things.
