Hope you're having a great night.
I wanted to share with you guys the stuff I do "every morning" (sometimes afternoon lately haha ) to "get amped up" to work...
These questions are how I keep focused on my financial goals as well as personal "time spent working" goals (work less you'll make TONS more)
1. What Puts Cash In Your Pocket Today or Tomorrow?
This question seems obvious but I wonder how many marketers spend time actually thinking "what am I doing today that put money in my pocket today or will do so tomorrow"...
Things that I do that fall into this category include
a. Writing emails
b. Segmenting my no opens to mail again
c. Study the forums to find topics to write about
d. Bumping my free WSOs
2. What Am I Doing That's Going To Pay Off Every Day Going Forward?
This is a rare thing people focus on. Even the successful marketers I know rarely do this. Business is about creating assets that can help you grow your income but also grow your ability to have passive income. By creating things that can pay off every day...you effectively get infinite time or money savings
For Example...if you create something that saves you 1 minute per day...that's over 6 hours of time saved a year...what if you created 1 thing that saved you 1 minute per day a few times a week???
For me...this means creating
a. Templates I can use repeatedly
b. Turning old emails into new emails by remailing my list every few months on successful emails
c. Turning old crappy content into better learning formats for residual income
d. Doing a favor for someone and making a friend in the process.
WHICH LEADS ME TO THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE OF ALL
3. What Can I Do Today To Permanently Impact Someone's Business In A Positive Way...
I love helping people help themselves. I really try to spend a good hour or more each day coaching, strategizing, and helping others with their business. My specialty is WSOs so I do various interview products and other things to help people get their start in the WSO game. This has given me first hand experience doing/helping on WSOs with which I have no experience in the subject matter (offline, FB marketing, and outsourcing to name a few) as well as made a ton of new friends.
In many cases, it has directly resulted in affiliate commissions, coaching calls, and JV opportunities to grow my list.
So...ask yourself today how you can spend some time investing your human capital into someone else to generate tangible capital. You'll feel better and I guarantee you'll have a FLOOD of opportunity coming into your business.
Bonus Idea: As I finished writing this, I noticed that there's a natural synergy between these three. You can exponentially increase the results with these 3 questions if you integrate them together...like
"How can I create a multi-day payoff thing as well as positively impact someone's business"
"How Can I Permanently Impact Someone's Business and Put Cash In My Pocket Today"...
This cerebral focus on these 3 strategic areas will help you make more money almost immediately as well as make new friends and make good Karma your nuclear weapon of awesome...
Hope this gets your wheels a turning here at 2am on the East Coast
