Simplify & Prioritise

September 17th, 2009

TimemanagementIt’s been a couple of weeks since my last post, (Almost sounds like I am making a confession) and I can only say that my priorities have been a little out of whack.

Of late it sometimes seems that my life is not my own. I have been pulled this way & that by different things in my life which have prevented me from focusing on my Internet Marketing endeavours. Things like work, family, tax, paperwork (my desk looks like a bomb has hit it), etc, have all contributed to not being able to focus on my goals.

It is times like this that I need to stop, refocus, simplify & prioritise.

I believe that this is good advise for anyone who is wanting to get ahead in this journey we call life. Things and events do crop up from time to time that knock us off path for a while, and then we get into a bit of a spin when we lose direction and don’t know which way to go.

STOP

The first thing we need to do in this situation is simply Stop. We need to get away, take some time out, and find a place where we can spend a few hours by ourselves where we will not be disturbed. I know this can be very difficult sometimes, but it is something that we must do. Even if you have to get up at 3:00am in the morning and just spend some quiet time every once in a while you should just make the time.

Spending some quiet time helps you to re-energise. When you have nothing or anybody making any demands on your time, you can relax and most importantly think about the things that are important to you.

I would also suggest that if you decide to go for a long walk or whatever it is you need to do to relax, do it in silence. Don’t take your iPod, Radio or Phone with you. The silence will help you to regroup & think. Also, don’t let your mind wander off to the things that you should be doing, or about the problems and challenges that you are facing, but simply think about your goals and for that matter your perfect life.

Refocus

After you have spend some quiet time, pick up a pen and some paper and start to write down what it is you want out of life. Write down your goals, and take some time to write them out in detail.

When you have your thoughts ideas and goals written down, think about how you are going to achieve them. Brian Tracy suggests using “Back from the Future” thinking. Imagine it is five years from today, that your life is perfect in every way. Now thing back over the past five years and think of all of the things that you have done and accomplished to get to where you are. Now write this down.

Your goals help to not only keep you on track, they also encourage you to stick with it. They help you through those tough times, and to do all of those things you don’t want to do, which are simply stepping stones to get you to your destination.

Having your goals written down, helps you to focus on what you want, and where you want to go. After all, as the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland says, “If you don’t know where you are going, it doesn’t matter which road you take.”

Simplify

Now is the time to start simplifying your life. There are so many things in our life that we deem to be important, that when you really put them in the right perspective and how they fit into your goals, they are not important at all.

Where possible, review everything that you do each day, and stop doing the things that are not moving you closer to your goal.

Obviously there are those things that we have to do, such as spending time with family and our jobs, but other things such as 20 hours a week of television can easily be reduced to 4 or 5 hours a week.

Make a list of a typical week, or even spend a week and write down everything that you do. Break your list down into 15 minute blocks, and at the end of the week, analyse exactly how you spend a typical week. This can be a real eye opener for most people.

Now simply, where possible, stop doing the things that are not moving you towards your goals. Start scheduling your days, your weeks and even your months and years.

Prioritise

Now you have a list of goals and an idea about what you need to do to achieve them, you need to prioritise.

Prioritise the things on your list, and rate each tasks importance on a scale of 1 to 10. (Be sure to include time with your family and some R&R on your list)

When you have done this rewrite your list and group them by importance or priority. Then write out a plan to start working on your goals straight away.

Now you know what is really important to you, and where you want to go, you now have a plan of action so you can move forward and start achieving your goals.

Action

Probably the most important thing to do once you have your list of goals and you plan, is to take immediate action.

Do something every day that moves you closer to where you want to be.

And in the words of Winston Churchill “Never, never, never, never give up”

5 Powerful Mind Success Strategies

August 21st, 2009

thinkBuilding a business is a fantastic and challenging experience.  You can wake up exhilarated to begin your day and go to bed feeling overwhelmed and frustrated.  The key to success is to maintain a positive, yes you can do it, mindset.

Easier said than done, right?  Here are 5 keys to help you create and sustain a positive mindset so you attain the success you desire.



1. Surround yourself with successful and positive people. The influence people have over our own personal energy is amazing.  Moods and attitudes are so easily spread – think about how much of a difference a simple smile from a stranger can make for your day and then magnify it 1000 times to demonstrate the power of positive and successful friends, family and associates.  When you have people around you who inspire you, believe in you and want you to succeed, there’s no room for doubts and even when they creep up, they’re quickly swept away.



2. Create a mantra or an affirmation. Repeating positive affirmations has been shown to get people through tough times and to actually help them truly believe what they’re saying.

For example, “I am building a powerful and profitable business.”  Many of the most esteemed business professionals have used the same affirmation strategy to attain their success.  To find the right affirmations for you, consider writing a quick list of your doubts, insecurities and complaints.  These can then be quickly turned into affirmations.

For example, if you write that you’re always feeling disorganized then your affirmation would be, “I am organized and in control.”  Repeat your affirmations several times a day and feel the power of positive thinking.



3. Capture negative thoughts. We all have negative thoughts from time to time, however, negative thoughts and emotions can derail us and prevent us from achieving all we desire.  Of course catching those negative thoughts takes practice and persistence.  When you find yourself thinking negative thoughts or having negative emotions, find a trigger to turn them around.  The affirmations mentioned above are a great way to turn the negative into the positive.  You can also find quick pick me ups like a favorite song, a walk outside in the fresh air, or some exercise to help improve your mood.



4. Set goals/intentions and then be willing to let it go. The law of attraction says that we attract what we focus on the most.  However, desperation, needing your business to be a success, sends mixed messages and a lot of negativity into the universe.  Set your goals and intentions and then let them go.  A certain amount of faith in yourself and in the power of attraction is necessary.  Give it a try.



5. Be grateful. Gratitude is perhaps the single most powerful and positive tool for success.  When you’re grateful for all of the wonderful things and people in your life the challenges you face seem significantly less important and are more easily dealt with.

Consider keeping a gratitude journal and make a practice of entering into it daily.  That way, when you’re facing challenges a quick peek at all the amazing things in your life will make you feel as if you can tackle anything.   Additionally, an attitude of gratitude helps you maintain a positive perspective and to face challenges as opportunities rather than obstacles.



Success is within your reach and with the right attitude you can accomplish anything you set your sights on.  Embrace these five powerful mind success strategies and you’ll build a better business and live a happier, more satisfying life.


Sometimes all it takes is a Simple Idea.
