There are two main reasons you aren’t producing the results you want now.Not Enough ActivityThe first reason you aren’t producing the results you want right now is because you aren’t taking enough action to produce them. There is no harvest in the Fall if you do not plant in the Spring.Activity is what produces results, not desire, not intentions, and not luck. If you really desire a certain result, you’ll do the work necessary to produce it. Otherwise, it’s just talk. Intentions are important, but only when coupled with action. You can grow old waiting for luck to find you; she only looks for hustlers.If you aren’t where you want to be right now, it’s very likely that you aren’t doing what is necessary to get there. If you were, you would already have what you want.Not The Right ActivityMaybe you are taking massive action and still aren’t where you want to be, even though that’s less likely to be true.You may believe that the activity you are taking isn’t the right activity. Before you decide that this is the case, you have to honestly determine whether or not you’ve done enough of that activity to get the results you want. Have you gone all in? Would some impartial party know exactly what you were trying to accomplish by looking at the actions you are taking, believing it to be an extraordinary effort?You also have to decide whether you’ve done enough activity for long enough to get the results you want. Some outcome you want require persistence, and that’s why so few produce those outcomes. It rarely makes sense to switch strategies and tactics without first executing against what you believe to be right.All that said, if what you are doing isn’t working, treat each failure as feedback, and then change your approach. Find a model, someone who is already producing the result you want, and look for clues as to what they are doing differently. Repeat this until you find something that works, and then go all in.The obstacles to success are almost exclusively internal. Even when they are not, with enough energy and effort applied consistently over time, the obstacle will yield.

ROUYN NORANDA, Que. – The photo shows a bearded, tattooed barber lying on his side on the floor, using a pair of clippers to trim the hair of the young boy lying facedown beside him.Francis “Franz” Jacob says it’s just part of a day’s work, but the barber from Rouyn-Noranda, Que. has become an unlikely celebrity after the boy’s mother posted the photo online to thank him for going out of his way to accommodate her son Wyatt, who has autism.Jacob owns an old-fashioned barber shop that specializes in 1920 to 1950’s-style punk and rockabilly haircuts, but he says he’s also developed a connection with special needs clients like Wyatt.“Each time I’m doing Wyatt’s hair, he’s always going on the ground, moving around, sitting on his mom’s lap, standing beside the chair,” said Jacob, 45.“That’s why I have a wireless clipper now, because at first I had to follow Wyatt around and plug my clipper into (different outlets).”Jacob opened his salon two years ago in the mining city some 600 kilometres northwest of Montreal.Wyatt was his first client with autism, but since meeting him he’s taken on others.“Each one has different needs and reactions, so each time it’s about adjusting to the client,” he said.He also occasionally cuts hair for clients who are terminally ill.The boy’s mother, Fauve Lafreniere, told CBC News that haircuts are a challenge for Wyatt because he moves a lot and can be hypersensitive to touch.She said she posted the picture online in the hopes others would follow Jacob’s example in finding “other ways to approach differences.”Jacob says he’s received countless messages and phone calls since the photo began to make its way around the Internet.Since most of the photos taken at his shop are of slick rock-style haircuts, he’s glad people are getting to see another side of what he does.“In this case you can see the extra mile that the barber is doing,” he said.“I don’t mind going on the floor, I don’t see any difference between musicians or an autistic kid, it’s the same extra mile.”– with files from Morgan Lowrie in Montreal.
