Be one of the few people that achieve success by following the 3 Cs of results-driven action as you navigate your everyday personal and professional life.
3 Cs for Results-Driven Action
Do you want to be more successful? Understanding the right action you need to take is critical for earning success. Without a high-level understanding of what you do and do not need to do — you’ll be left with long-term lackluster results. How frustrating that would be – for both you and your employer!
I recently wrote a book for professionals in the business world titled: LEVEL UP: Elevate Your Game & Crush Your Goals (Releasing June 2020) and I open the entire book, laying the foundation, with the 3 Cs we’re going to very briefly discuss today.
The 3 Cs for Results-Driven Action will help you take control of your future success and eliminate wasted time and energy!
C – Correct
The first of the three Cs is: CORRECT. You must take correct action…anything else will lead you off track from accomplishing your goals!
I suggest the first step in establishing what correct action looks like for you is to get your perspective in check. Understanding who you are, what you want to achieve, and how the world really works is key to correctly seeing what action you need to take.
How do you know if your perspective is currently correct or incorrect?
Answer this question for yourself: When is the last time I sat down and deeply analyzed who I am, my goals, and the world around me?
- If your answer is never, you could be taking incorrect action.
- If your answer is sometime before your mid-20’s, you could be taking incorrect action. Why? The decision-making part of your brain isn’t fully developed until you’re in your mid-20’s.
- If your answer is 6 months ago, then you may very well be on the right track!
Hear me carefully, correct, results-driven action is critical to building the right foundation for you to grow from.
C – Calculated
Calculated action means that every action you take is on purpose, for a purpose. In other words, every word you say and move you make is to get you closer to — not further from — crushing your goals.
How do you learn what action to take and when? You must deeply understand the people around you.
Newsflash: There is no one in the world who is a self-made success! If you want to be successful, you’re going to have to be willing to learn about and work well with other people. You must deeply develop your knowledge of who the people are around you, what they like and dislike, what motivates them, etc.
Why do you need to do that?
People are forming opinions about you with every interaction they have with you. Their opinion of you matters because it determines how they treat you. They may be your door to opportunity! Make sure you’re interacting with them intentionally. And, here’s the thing, their opinion of you will have less to do with you and more to do with them…
- How do you make them feel?
- Do you cause them to have more/less faith in you?
- Do your actions make them want to invest in or get rid of you?
That list could go on! People have different personalities, motivations, etc. You need to understand them so you can adapt your actions and create forward progress in your personal and professional life.
C – Consistent
I believe your success hinges on your willingness to choose to be consistent. Consistent action may be the hardest part of all of this. Most people don’t consistently perform well which is why most people are not where they want to be in life.
The key to being consistent is to stay focused on your goals. When you clearly know what it is you are trying to accomplish, you will not succumb to incorrect, uncalculated, inconsistent actions in the heat of a moment. Instead, you’ll choose the right actions, the right response, and the right decision.
My question to you is: Do you know exactly where you’re headed? Do you have a clear goal? If not, you’ll be taking a lot of action that may lead you nowhere.
I challenge you today to get serious about naming and understanding your own priorities so that when the rubber meets the road, you won’t lose your motivation and your consistency.

Results-Driven Action for Success
The bottom line is, you can have that hunger, that burning desire, or that small voice impelling you to live your value. But that feeling alone will not get you any closer to crushing your goals. You have to take action…and by action I mean correct, calculated, and consistent action – right now. That is your only option for success. I believe we have the ability to EARN everything we want. I’m wishing you massive success!
