Listen To Joel Embiid and Trust the Process But with One Caveat

Recently a Twitter picture was released that showed the phrase “trust the process” written right on the tongue of Philadelphia 76ers start Joel Embiid’s sneaker.  It’s almost comical how many times we’re hearing about this guy saying “trust the process.”   But who’s laughing now?  The seven footer is showing the NBA just how talented he is.  He’s already averaging nearly 18 points and 9 rebounds a game showing incredible shooting range and ball handling skills for a player of his size.  But here’s the kicker.  Not only has Embiid broken his foot once, but twice to miss what could have been his first two full seasons in the NBA.  So if Embiid’s mantra is “Trust the Process” then by all means let him trust the process.

But for the purposes of your own business and life, what is your process?  Finding your own process can be lengthy and difficult so I’ve decided to give you some tips on how to make the process a bit faster.

Choose something, anything to start with

In the video above I mentioned that my method for productivity and process for getting work done is my list.  However, it wasn’t initially a list.  I tried numerous methods that fit my personality and finally the list stuck.  So in my situation I knew I was always task oriented.  I tend to like to bang things out 1-2-3 as much as possible and then leave the rest of my day to be flexible.  A list is perfect for this.  I write out each task and bang them out as quickly as possible, no questions asked.   However, you must choose something for you.  Are you a visual person?  Maybe you could create a video reminder of what you need to do.  Perhaps you can have a friend call you once a day with your daily tasks.  Doesn’t matter what it is.  Just choose something and move on to step 2.

Stick to this method for at least a week

If you aren’t tiring of this method after a week of doing it and you’re finding yourself to be more productive?  Excellent, stick with it.  If not and you find yourself skipping this method or procrastinating with it, then find something else, and fast.  The key is to keep trying things until something is right for you.  Don’t try and fit something that doesn’t align with your motivation and personality.  It’s just never going to work.  And even if it does, you won’t be happy with this method.  So remember, if you find something you like after a week of using it, STICK WITH IT.

Once the method is found – update it, refine it

If you have a method that works, then by all means keep using the exact same method until you tire.  However, it’s important to keep this method fresh.  Even just a tiny refinement can do just that.  For example, I have my lists.  However, while the list itself is a constant in my process, the item on the list are not linear.  They are ever changing and it’s the slight changes I make to that list that keep it fresh, new, interesting, and motivate me to get the job done.

Tune everyone else out and get to work

Most importantly, it’s the list that works for YOU, and no one else.  What makes one person successful can make other people fail.   It doesn’t matter what they do.  It matters what YOU do.  As long as you’re being productive and reach your goals, who cares?
