Plan your Attack, and Attack your Plan!

    You may have heard the expression “He who fails to plan, plans to fail.”

    Are you planning to fail?

    Do you have a schedule that you follow consistently every day in order to achieve consistent results?

    If not, don’t be too hard on yourself because 90% of rest of the population fails to plan.

    Do you think that’s why most people (say 90%) fail to achieve their goals?

    Being self employed takes discipline. It’s been said that it takes 21 days to form a habit. So should we assume that if we discipline ourselves for 21 days, we should have a formed a habit that will allow us to succeed?

    Well, it’s really not as simple as the marketers of “The Secret” would like you to think. You see, vague recommendations are not very useful in the real world.

    So how do you create better habits?

    You must plan out your workday, every day. If you're not a person who likes structure, then wing it during your free time, but to succeed in business, you must know what you need to accomplish, every day, each day and do it.

    Not only does this give you a guideline, it gives you a sense of purpose, which leads to accomplishment.

    And it feels good!

    Remember, consistent action brings forth consistent results. In fact, what you’re doing now brings about results, consistently.

    Are these the results that you want?

    If not, you may want to change your approach, and it has to start with planning. ; )~

    (To avoid this being a vague recommendation, lol, if you really don’t know where to start, I’ve created a spreadsheet so that you can plan your attack on a daily basis. It includes an outline of what my day might typically look like to use as an example. Just delete it and add your own plan of attack! Email me and I'll send it to you, [email protected])

    Rob...Good stuff. But just curious... What are some of your own personal production sales achievements? What were your biggest 3-year and 5-year totals in personal production?
