The best way to predict the future is to create it
"The best way to predict the future is to create it" - Peter Drucker What do you think Drucker means by this? What did it mean to you as you read it now?
Peter Ferdinand Drucker (November 19, 1909 – November 11, 2005) was an Austrian-born American management consultant, educator, and author, whose writings contributed to the philosophical and practical foundations of the modern business corporation. He was also a leader in the development of management education.
When I read his quote I think about ACTION. So many sit in their homes with brilliant ideas. But they don't act on them. What kind of future will that bring? It takes A LOT OF work to change habits and change the way we do things. And it is hard work. It will challenge you and make you feel uncomfortable. But who ever said it was going to be easy?
Just because it takes a lot of work to create the future you want is no reason to settle for a future you don't want. As far as we know, we get one chance at this thing called life. No one has a contract to live forever, and yet some seem to think they do. So what will your future be like? You don't have to ask anybody. You just need to create it.
Your smartest action steps TODAY towards your goal What is it that you can do today that takes you as fast as possible in the direction of your goal? And how can todays quote help you? Make sure you 1) Have a goal (decide what you want, how to measure it and when you want it). 2) Focus on the things that will take you in the direction of your goal 3) Dont spend any time thinking of why you can't. Only think of how you can. Spend a minute or two (yes, you do have 2 minutes of time) and really think of at least 3 ways this quote ties into your life. How can it help you?
