The 10 Demands, The 5 Reasons, & the 3 Ways for business owners to get distracted!!!
Do you need another article to read to learn about being a better business onwer?
Really do any of these articles do anything but helping you “Get Motivated” – at best, at worst these make me want to puke. They are vague recommendations to the casual viewer attempting to make an effort to be a better business owner. But the results are that we get overloaded on too much information (otherwise known as Infobeasity) but having NO PLAN!!!
So what I want to discuss is the empowerment that comes with PLANNING! Now isn’t that EXCITING. No it isn’t, but never the less it is the path creating that allows us to know that our day was successful. Successful because we accomplished what we set out to do! I know mind blowing, new-age kind of idea!
So take the 15 minutes you would have wasted on reading the articles above and follow these simple steps (it isn’t complicated, so for all you right-brainers, STOP making it complicated):
Step #1: Write down the 3 items that are recurring “items I need to deal with”
Step #2: Write down what YOU want to see happen with these items
Step #3: Write down each step that needs to get these items COMPLETED.
Step #4: Find your calendar and schedule the time required for each step.
There you now have a working plan. And as my business strategist Kathie Nelson, Connectworks
reminds us of “1 minute spent planning saves 9 minutes”. So save yourself time, distractions, and dissatisfactory results by making a plan!
