“The edge is in the inputs.
The person who consumes from better sources, gets better thoughts. The person who asks better questions, gets better answers. The person who builds better habits, gets better results.
It’s not the outcomes. It’s the inputs.” – James Clear
If you are not getting the results you want, sometimes you need to take a break and look at the fuel and resources you are using and how you are trying to achieve your goals. Having the right alignment between resources, processes and the right catalysts can be the difference. The same car that can win the race will be up on blocks if it doesn’t have the right inputs at the right time and a well tuned system. When you are embedded in the system, it’s not always as easy to have perspective on it. That’s where a good thought partner can help you with your discernment as you diagnose and make important decisions about how you want to proceed.
