to squander it away. You have the best of intentions at the beginning
of the day but then find yourself browsing the forum, checking stats,
and reading your favorite blogs.
You look up and 3 hours have passed with ZERO actual work being accomplished.
one of the critical differences between those who struggle and those who
succeed online is that those who are successful have full control over
how they manage their time.
This is something I've spent years working on. And sure - I still get
lost on the interwebs some times
But my days are now focused on the high-leverage activities in our business.
So I thought I'd share a few simple tricks I use...
1. Set 3 BIG Rocks every day. Each day you need to decide on 3 activities that you're
going to complete that day. These are the 3 activities that are going to
have the BIGGEST impact on your business.
The one's that are going to move your business forward. These action items
should revolve around either growing your traffic, optimizing your funnel,
or working on a new product.
Every successful business is built around those 3 core activities.
Write down your BIG 3 the night before and that way you'll be ready
to start ROCKIN as soon as you get up.
2. Trick yourself into productivity.
This is something I use all the time. Commit to writing for just 3 minutes.
Set the timer for 3 minutes and start writing.
The hardest part is just getting started. Once you've finished the 3 minutes
you'll be in the flow and it's actually easier to keep going than it is to stop.
You put yourself into a flow of momentum by making 'small' commitments.
3. ALWAYS use a timer.
The timer is my MOST important productivity tool.
I have a digital timer that sets on my desk at all times.
I break up my day into 33-minute blitzes. I set the timer for 33-minutes
and then focus exclusively on ONE task until completion.
If you don't complete the task during that particular time slot. Simply
restart the clock and go again. Or take a quick stretch, grab some water,
and then keep rockin!
By setting the timer it helps to keep you laser focused on the task at hand.
If you use these 3 strategies EVERY day, you'll have your best year yet.
Success goes to those who get the most done each day AND are working on the
high-leverage tasks in their business.
For me, those high-leverage tasks include:
Managing our Facebook Ads
Creating New Products
Optimizing our Sales Funnel
Sending 3 emails per week to our subscribers.
And that's really about it.
Most people are actually doing too many things online with too many moving
You're much better off mastering a critical few.
