For Brian Kight, unflinching realism and relentless optimism are like the two rails of a train track. Without either one, the train can’t move forward. For some people, taking a long, hard look at realism is a challenge. For others, it’s easy to get stuck in the rut of pessimism. But while many may feel these forces are in opposition, Kight says the ability to be realistic and optimistic helps you cut through excuses and take control of the decisions you make.
They are also two of the core principles of the DMGB mindset, which stands for “Doesn’t Matter, Get Better.” Regardless of what challenges you face, or how motivated you are or aren’t, you can make the choice to bring your best every day. It’s not about following your passion, Kight says, it’s about bringing your passion with you to everything you do. You have the power to hold yourself to the same high standards no matter what the task at hand is, and use your energy day in and day out. By making the right choices and holding yourself accountable, you can build the discipline you need to bring value to your work.
