Do you have a sense of urgency? I do! I probably have triple the amount of a sense of urgency than most people. This doesn’t make me a better person, but I get frustrated when I and others don’t give their best effort.
My definition of a sense of urgency is having a burning desire to accomplish or do something in a time efficient and organized way. Not a perfect way, but an honest effort way. In my personal and business pursuits, I find that too many people don’t share my feelings.
Have you called a doctor, lawyer, accountant, service person or any other type of business and feel that you’re not being heard? You voice your complaint and they think that you’re crazy for wanting them to do what they are supposed to do! The truth is that these people are not truly committed to their service to others.
These people want you to believe that mediocre service is a way of life and that you have to accept it. No we don’t!! If people complained more they could stamp out the many mediocre!
Having a sense of urgency is the key ingredient to accomplish everything. This strong desire is the fuel to get your motivational engine running to take the steps needed to do what you want.
Don’t have a sense of urgency? You probably don’t have a strong purpose. Now is the time to get one!! Without it, you become stale and become a member of the many mediocre.
Being the highly sensitive person that I am, I need a sense of purpose and accomplishment to be happy. What about you?
When you look back at your successes in life, you’ll probably discover that you had a strong sense of urgency to accomplish something that was truly important to you.
Do you have a sense of urgency? I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have.
