Hey Friends! Hope your week has been treating you well.
Got a long to-do list that no amount of effort is helping to shorten?
Join the club! Because most business owners with crazy long to-do lists tell me they feel scattered, overloaded, and spread thin.
Worse, you may have a hard time focusing on your priorities.
And TEN TIMES WORSE, you may end up feeling guilty that you aren’t getting everything done.
Here’s a 3-step process to prioritizing and getting that to-do list handled!
Step 1 — Figure out how much revenue you want to generate this quarter.
Basically, how much money would you like to make?
For example, say you want to generate $20,000 this quarter.
Step 2 — Ask yourself, “What’s the fastest and easiest way for me to make that money?”
The fastest and easiest way to make money is through sales conversations (I’ve got that one covered for you).
So your next question is, “How do I get on the phone or get in front of more people who might want to buy my products or services?”
(Hint: speaking events, sponsorships, webinars, videos, networking, etc.)
Step 3 — Ask yourself, “What am I going to do to get out there and take those actions?”
In five minutes, you should be able to outline a rough plan for the things you will do to reach your income goal this quarter.
It does not need to be more complicated than that.
See, many business owners end up with all kinds of weird loose-end tasks on their to-do lists. Things like: rewrite my About page, write my 100 word bio, update the free gift. Figure out other pages for the website. Call So-and-So to see about the workshop.
But really, you just need to focus on your MAIN GOAL.
One thing I do every day is make a list of the top 3 things I will get done that day.
That’s it. I don’t put 20,000 things on my list. Just 3. But when you make this a habit, it forces you to decide what your priorities are.
And then delegate, delete, or delay the rest (wow — crazy, right?).
With much appreciation,
P.S. In my next email, I’ll share a way you can get my direct feedback on your biggest questions. Keep an eye out! 🙂
