Be – Do – Have….CanDoGo
Zig Ziglar (Dad) is famous for his Be, Do, Have philosophy. You have to “Be” the right kind of person first, then you must “Do” the right things before you can expect to “Have” the things in life that really matter. Dad keeps it pretty simple – Be, Do, Have.
Keeping it simple pays huge dividends in today’s world. With so many things to remember and keep track of, it just makes sense to boil the complexity down to a few simple truths.
What are you going to do today to “Be” the right kind of person? What specific character quality or skill are you going to work on? What are you going to listen to or read? Who are you going to spend time with that will help you “Be-come” the right kind of person?
What actions are you going to “Do” today so that you can expect to “Have” the things that matter? “Do” is a great word because it is all about action. “Be-ing” the right kind of person is essential, but until you take action, until you “Do,” you are not impacting the world around you in a positive way. Don’t let the “Do-ing” in your life happen by accident; instead, plan purpose in your “Do-ing.”
