75% of all conversations are about the past. Why is it so compelling? because it doesn't change and therefore feels safe. If you want to be really productive, start talking about the future. You will get 3 times the result in life.
You know, frequently we have a conundrum because of the past the present and the future. Did you know that seventy five percent of all conversation is about the past? If you just listen to any conversation, youíre going to hear people talking, primarily, about the past.
So, what is it that it is really so compelling about the past. Well, the number one thing is, it doesnít change. So itís safe. The reason so few people talk about the future is because the future changes, itís dynamic, I actually have some responsibility if Iím talking about my future. But hereís whatís really interesting, all of our productivity comes from that future. So, if you want to be really productive, start talking about your future. If itís true that seventy five percent of the conversations about the past, and twenty five percent is about the future - if you just reverse those and start talking about the future, youíre going to get three times the results in life, just by changing the direction that youíre talking about Ė more about the future.
