When Ambitions overtake Performance, The Gap is called Frustrations.

But If Performance Overtake Ambitions, its called Success ….

Everyone wants to be successful, but success isn’t always so clear-cut. Ambitions and performance may seem to be completely opposite in the way that they affect us, but they can also make all the difference between success and frustration. The gap between ambitions and performance is what separates those who are able to achieve success from those who are never satisfied with their accomplishments. If you can navigate that gap, then you will find satisfaction in your successes, no matter how small they may be.

Step 1: Define your ambitions
Your ambitions are those things you would love to achieve in your career or business, but which may not be possible if you don’t work hard enough or put in the necessary time. For example, your ambition might be to win an award for excellence in your industry – if you don’t do everything in your power to make it happen, it will never happen.

Step 2: Define your performance metrics
It is important to define your performance metrics before you get started on your project in order to measure your success after completion. That way, you will know if you are moving in the right direction or if you need to make changes. Here are some examples of performance metrics for a business:
-Number of sales made per month
-Clicks on a website
-Ratings on social media outlets
-Pageviews on a website

Step 3: Identify gaps
Gaps occur when ambition exceeds performance, leading to feelings of inadequacy or disappointment. It is important to be aware of this gap before it leads to feelings of failure or embarrassment because it can diminish self-confidence and lead to a life of mediocrity if not addressed quickly. When we are aware that our ambition is greater than our performance, it is important to make efforts to close this gap by focusing on what needs improvement in order for us to achieve our goals successfully.

Step 4: Set actionable goals
In order to successfully measure your progress, you will need to set specific, measurable goals for yourself. These goals should be SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, time-based). For example, if you want to lose weight by June 1st of this year, your goal would be to lose 20 pounds not to lose weight.

Step 5: Prioritize them (use Eisenhower’s Urgent / Important Matrix)
Eisenhower’s Urgent / Important Matrix is a prioritization tool that helps you prioritize your tasks by urgency and importance. In order to use this method, list all of your tasks on a piece of paper. Then, organize them into four quadrants based on how urgent or important they are to you.

Step 6 – Execute
This is a tough one for so many people, but if you want to make something happen, then it’s important to take action. It sounds simple, but most people never start because they’re afraid of failing or just don’t know what to do first. The good news is that there are several ways to get started with no risk or investment required!
