Three Things You Must Do to Be Successful
Many people do not prioritize their tasks. They focus on techniques and tactics, but they don’t prioritize what they need to get done. For example, they perform tasks in the evening instead of in the morning, they are stressed out and overworked. You want to make sure the primary tasks that you need to accomplish, that help grow your business, are done in the morning. You don’t want to necessarily respond to emails and phone calls first thing in the morning. If there is a video you need to shoot, shoot the video in the morning. If one of your primary tasks is link promotion or track back links, then do that first. If you are a writer and you need to write blog posts throughout the day then do them in the morning and make them a priority. Do it before you get to the computer and interact with a lot of clients.
Do things that are out of the box and out of your comfort zone. If you are constantly doing the same things over and over again, you are going to continue to get the same results. If you prioritize and do things that are a little out of your comfort zone, it is going to help you grow as a person, and it is going to grow your business as well. For example, if you are not very skilled with speaking on video, you should practice speaking on video, or at least speak without the camera on. If you are not strong with face-to-face interactions with customers, you might want to go speak with people at the mall and simply try to start a conversation. These types of activities will help you grow and gain experience, and you can apply them to other areas of your business.
3. Speed of Implementation
This is very important because a lot of people (both clients and customers) say that they want a website, but they are still saying they want a website years later and still don’t have it. When you want to do something and you make it a priority, even if it is hard for you, you are going to do it fast. If you do it fast you are able to try it and see if it works. That is the point of speed of implementation. If you don’t take care of a priority fast enough then it gets prolonged day after day. Instead, you could do it quickly and test it out. It might work or it might not, but at least you know and are able to try something else if it doesn’t work. If it does work you are able to reap the benefits earlier on.
Prioritize. Do things that are counter-intuitive (things that are out of the box, listen to a mentor, get guidance, something that pushes you to do something different), and finally, do it quickly. Many people struggle with these three things because they are constantly online and checking their email first. They are not making things that are of higher value, that help them grow their business, a priority. They tend to do things that are reactive versus proactive. They like to stay in their comfort zone and 90% of people stay there and don’t change. In order for your business to grow you have to take that step quicker than most people and do things that are counter-intuitive, or difficult for you. I highly recommend that you take a look at yourself and consider how you are prioritizing, if you are doing things that are hard for you, and if you are doing them quickly. If you’re not, take note of this and start implementing these three things as quickly as possible so that your business can grow as rapidly as possible.
