Fastest Way To Drive New Action

If you want to change something and create new results fast, the first thing to do is NOT to make a list or schedule. These things feel like “taking action,” but you will never create something NEW with these activities.

When you begin by making lists or scheduling, you are practicing the intention to change in the future but not yet changing.

To create new results, you have to take new actions. And the fastest way to drive new action is with intentional thought work.

You might argue that making lists and planning is the thing you need to do to get yourself to take the new action, but when you start with lists and scheduling, the plans are still coming from your current way of thinking. You will know you are doing this if these plans are heavily reliant on willpower and motivation or if you have tried this in the past but not followed through.

If you want faster results with less trial and error, the decisions that need to be made to create change require a new way of thinking.

Making Change With Intentional Thought

When you approach change beginning with intentional thought this is what’s going to happen, you’re going to:

  • Uncover the thoughts that are creating your current results and identify the ones standing in your way
  • Identify subconscious thought errors and limitations
  • Practice creative exploration of possible paths toward the desired results
  • Examine the big picture AND what’s going on in the weeds to make sure that your decisions are aligned with your long-term intentions and desires, as well as your current day-to-day reality
  • Grow your desire and your commitment to creating this change, as well as the resilience to work through ups and downs along the way

What does that mean? Intentional thought work makes it easier to get out of your own way and get into focused action without relying on willpower and motivation.

It trains us to uncover things that we didn’t even know we didn’t know and the thoughts we didn’t know we needed. From there, we make different decisions, and change is inevitable.

It’s the difference between rolling a boulder up a hill and solving a puzzle.

The Biggest Challenge

Doing intentional thought work isn’t rocket science, but if it’s a new way of doing things, there’s a learning curve. Building the practice of using the tools consistently and not falling back into old patterns is the biggest challenge for most. The shift doesn’t happen overnight.
