leadership training
by Brad Isaac 由布拉德艾薩克

Years ago when Seinfeld was a new television show, Jerry Seinfeld was still a touring comic.年前,當塞恩菲爾德是一個新的電視節目,傑里塞恩菲爾德仍然是一個旅遊的漫畫。 At the time, I was hanging around clubs doing open mic nights and trying to learn the ropes.在那時,我對掛在靠近俱樂部做公開的MIC夜和努力學習繩索。 One night I was in the club where Seinfeld was working, and before he went on stage, I saw my chance.一個晚上,我在俱樂部塞恩菲爾德工作,和之前他在舞台上,我看到我的機會。 I had to ask Seinfeld if he had any tips for a young comic.我曾問塞恩菲爾德,如果他有任何提示一個年輕的漫畫。 What he told me was something that would benefit me a lifetime…他告訴我,是一些我將受益終生…

He said the way to be a better comic was to create better jokes and the way to create better jokes was to write every day.他說,方法是一個更好的漫畫是為了創造更好的笑話和途徑,創造更好的笑話是寫每一天。 But his advice was better than that.但他的建議是優於。 He had a gem of a leverage technique he used on himself and you can use it to motivate yourself - even when you don’t feel like it.他有一個創業板的一個槓桿,他的技術用在自己和您可以用它來激勵自己-即使當您不覺得喜歡它。

He then revealed a unique calendar system he was using pressure himself to write.然後,他透露了一個獨特的日曆系統,他用自己的壓力給我們寫信。

Here’s how it worked.這裡的如何工作。

He told me to get a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall.他告訴我得到一個很大的挂歷已經整整一年了在同一頁上,並掛放在突出牆。 The next step was to get a big red magic marker.下一步是得到一個大紅色的魔法標記。

He said for each day that I do my task of writing, I get to put a big red X over that day.他說,每一天,我做我的任務寫作,我要提出一個大紅色的X以上的那一天。 “After a few days you’ll have a chain. “幾天後,您即可擁有一鏈。 Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day.只是保持在資訊科技及連鎖將不再成長,每一天。 You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt.您一定會喜歡看到鏈,特別是當你得到幾個星期,在你的腰帶。 Your only job next is to not break the chain.”你唯一的工作,明年是不是打破鏈“ 。

“Don’t break the chain.” He said again for emphasis. “不打破鏈。他說: ”再次強調。

Over the years I’ve used his technique in many different areas.多年來,我已經用自己的技術在很多不同的領域。 I’ve used it for exercise, to learn programming, to learn network administration, to build successful websites and build successful businesses.我已經用它為工作,學習編程,學習網絡管理,以建立成功的網站和建立成功的企業。

It works because it isn’t the one-shot pushes that get us where we want to go, it is the consistent daily action that builds extraordinary outcomes.它的工程,因為這不是一次性推說,讓我們的地方,我們想要去的,它是一致的,每日的行動,建立了非凡的成果。 You may have heard “inch by inch anything’sa cinch.” Inch by inch does work if you can move an inch every day.您可能已經聽說“英寸英寸anything'sa小事一樁。 ”英寸英寸是否工作,如果你可以移動一英寸的每一天。

Daily action builds habits.每日的行動,建立習慣。 It gives you practice and will make you an expert in a short time.它可以讓您的做法,並會令你一專家在很短的時間。 If you don’t break the chain, you’ll start to spot opportunities you otherwise wouldn’t.如果你不打破鏈,您就可以開始向現場的機會,否則你不會。 Small improvements accumulate into large improvements rapidly because daily action provides “compounding interest.”小改進積累到大迅速改善,因為每天的行動提供了“複雜的利益” 。

Skipping one day makes it easier to skip the next.飛一天使得更容易跳過下一步。

I’ve often said I’d rather have someone who will take action - even if small - every day as opposed to someone who swings hard once or twice a week.我經常說,我寧願有有人會採取行動-即使是小-每一天作為反對的人,鞦韆,努力一次或兩次週。 Seinfeld understands that daily action yields greater benefits than sitting down and trying to knock out 1000 jokes in one day.塞恩菲爾德明白,每日的行動產量更大的利益比坐下來和試圖淘汰1000笑話在一天。

Think for a moment about what action would make the most profound impact on your life if you worked it every day.認為一個時刻,關於什麼行動,會做出最深刻的影響,您的生活如果你的工作,它每天都在。 That is the action I recommend you put on your Seinfeld calendar.這是行動,我建議你放在您的塞恩菲爾德日曆。 Start today and earn your big red X. And from here on out…從今天開始,賺取您的大紅色的X和從這裡走出…

Don’t break the chain!不打破鏈!
