Taking action is the most important thing, if you want to get results. Without results you won’t make any money. Learn these 10 steps so you can take action fast and grow your business. All you need is the will to do it.
1. Effective planning
Planing is key in order to take action. First, you have to decide on the objective you wish to accomplish. Second, you have to select a strategy and define it into individual steps. This way you will be more effective and you will have your work in order. At the end, you need a realistic timetable. This is important, because if the timetable is to short, you will become frustrated and this will have a negative effect on your work. If the timetable is to long, you will have another excuse to procrastinate. Be careful with that.
2. To-do lists
You always want to use to-do lists to track and manage all your actions. You constantly want to modify your lists with new actions steps you wish to take. With this method you will always keep up with your priorities. I think this is a great way to get things done.
3. Work Environment
In this step, write down everything that you can think of, that would improve your work environment. The reason for this step is to make you happier and get more fun to do work. You want to be as productive as possible. Every work environment can be improved, like a more comfortable chair, or no TV in a room where you do your creative thinking. You get the point.
4. Manage your time
Time management is critical to your success. You must first determine your time commitment, then work to make the best use of it. You can’t waste any time when you work on your business. Time is the most important resource you have. I suggest you review yourself, how you spend your time. Make notes from week to week how you spend your time. Be honest with yourself. How well you use your time will determine how much money you make in your business.
5. Work in short bursts
To avoid procrastination, learn to work in a very short bursts of time. Breakdown tasks into a very small chunks. I recommend you use a stopwatch. Set it for 30 minutes and try to work as fast and as hard for those 30 minutes. You will see how much more work you will do each time you repeat the process.
6. Fastest path to cash
Write down all the projects, ideas and plans you are considering. Then prioritize the list in order what will bring in cash the fastest. Remember, you need to take action, because only that will help your business grow quickly.
7. Gradual improvement
The key to growing your income from month to month is by achieving incremental progress and gradual improvement. Try to tweak and improve your work every week. If you get the same results every month, then you are doing something wrong. Always stay focused on incremental progress. always try to be better and provide a better service.
8. Working with models
Take a fast action by “filling in the blanks” of your models and finding ways to get others do it for you. Working with models is key, when you want to get things done fast. When you find a model that works for you, keep repeating the action and you will get great results. You will have more time for new ideas, so why not pay some money to people who can do it for you.
9. Remove resistance
Write down all the things that create resistance in the process of you taking action. What keeps you from taking action. In this step you will get the idea what is holding you back. Think about what you can do to eliminate that resistance. Think long and hard about this.
10. 80/20 Rule
Learn to use the 80/20 rule to determine what action you will take in your business. You have to learn to use 80/20 rule to get maximum results. That means, those things that produce 80% of the results, you need to do more of them. Those things that produce 20% of the results, you need to do less or abandon them completely. Always focus on the 80% of the 80/20 rule and simply do more of it.
By now you know that solid planing is critical. You must manage your time and get realistic timetables. Make working more fun and easy. You will take more action and make more money. Figure out what will bring in cash the fastest and work with models. Build a framework. It will be easier for you and you will see what works and what does not. Now go and take action and watch your business grow
