It’s so incredibly easy to get caught up in busywork or to let your phone or email start controlling your schedule. Before you know it, a whole day (or several) has gone by and you don’t have anything real to show for it.
Let that happen too much and you lose serious momentum—not to mention not getting tasks done that will actually grow your business.
I don’t want that happening to you. So I’m sharing the five strategies I use to stay or get back in the zone whenever I start drifting off.
Here’s a brief summary:
#1: Set your priorities daily. Sometimes it seems like every action item is crucial, but that’s not true. Responding to emails and recording new videos for your course do not rank the same. I’ll share some advice from my good friend Michael Hyatt, who puts a limit on the number of big tasks he works on every day.
#2: Be clear about WHAT and WHY. You’ll hear me talk about how a lack of clarity kept me from getting one project done.
#3: Power up. I’ll talk about how I get my creative batteries to reach a “full charge.”
#4: Schedule your day for success. Devoting an hour here and there to a big project means you may not be finishing it anytime soon. I’ll share the strategy I use to make sure I have focused time.
#5: Say it out loud. Making a bold, public statement, like I did about reworking List Builders Lab, forces you to deliver. I’ll go over the best way to make this kind of public commitment.
And then, of course, I’ve got a bonus strategy that I share at the very end of the show. It’s a way to pick yourself up when things get a little tough.
