One PEACE to rule them all!
I used to think that I can sprinkle my attention and focus on a lot of projects at a time and back in mind think that it will all come to fruition.
Does it sound familiar?
What was the outcome? Always the same. I failed both the projects and the people involved.
Why is it that nine people can not deliver a baby in one month?

The key to success in every enterprise in life is finding the master PEACE, holding all the pieces together.
P as Persistence
Most successful people have failed more than they have succeeded. This is also shared with lots of people who did not achieve their goals in life because, at some point in their life, they threw the towel.
Yet persistence in the wrong path will not lead to success.
What differentiates the successful persistent people from the unsuccessful ones?
E as Experimentation
The second piece of the puzzle is experimentation. If you want to be successful, you must be ready to test your idea in real life, you must put it into existence through experimentation.
Like a baby who learns how to sit, then how to crawl, and finally how to walk, trial by error is key to making sure that you are on the right path.
Does this experimentation guarantee success?
A as Adaptation
To go further in the right path, we must adapt the experimentation based on the output.
As the saying goes: “Garbage in, garbage out.”
As we are going through the experience, we must be ready to use the output in the real world and adapt our path towards our ultimate goal.
What is the goal changes, in this mad world?
C as Consistency
If we are clear on what we want to achieve in this world, we have one ultimate goal. You may call it your life mission or your vision.
We must define one life mission that we want to achieve, no matter what. This is why consistency is key. And having one mission will help us focus all our finite energy to accomplish an infinite mission.
Then what’s in it for me, all these efforts, for what?
E as Evolution
Yes, in the end, it’s all about the journey. It’s you evolving continuously from the cradle to the grave.
We cannot control what will happen in our environment. Yet we have the ultimate control over how we react to what happens.
As the world is changing faster than the speed of light, the only way for us to be in charge is to evolve toward our life mission, every single day.
Each time you encounter a challenge in life, you persist because you know that you are in the right direction.
How do you know that? Because through experimentation, you learned what did work.
And you adapted your machine based on the feedback you received from your environment.
Your machine is constantly fueled by your consistent actions, day in, day out.
All along that life journey, you are not looking for extinction. You are striving for evolution.
Feel free to leave a comment below oh how did you find that PEACE in you.
