How a Whiteboard helps you organize

Your Brain in print (seeing it all helps you organize it!)

If you are a list person (and I know I am), then you may find it difficult to ever adjust your schedule once you have it committed to paper.

This is where a whiteboard can really help you. After you decide what you need to do today, just write it, LARGE, on a whiteboard that is big enough for you to see it when you walk across the room.

When we make a list on a little scrap of paper, or even in a Franklin Planner, it can be really difficult  to  use every spare minute checking off your to do list.

But when you keep the vision before you, broken down into Morning, afternoon and evening goals, and, you keep it where you can actually see it, then you are so much more likely to complete everything on your list.

Are you having trouble getting it all together? How do you manage your time effectively? I would love to hear your comments here.

Keeping the vision before you

 

image002If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, then you know that I am big on “writing the vision and making it plain”.

One thing that can really help you do this is a time-line of your business.
Your business should be growing everyday, and you should be able to see some growth in your business.

Some people spend years and years promoting something that isn’t working for them.

This may not mean that they are in the wrong business, but it does mean that they need to withdraw and analyze.

When you are in an online business, it is so important to keep the vision before you. Ask yourself, where did I hope to be at this point in my business when I first began?

Then, withdraw and analyze.

If you find that you are not where you should be by now, then ask yourself some questions:

“Was I unrealistic in the amount of time I thought it would take me to succeed?
And what is success”?

“What accomplishment at this point in the game would cause me to think I am successful”? Remember, goals must be actionable and measurable.

If you take inventory and are disappointed with where you are, then ask yourself… “What goal must I reach this year in order to be successful”?
Once you determine what that goal is, break it down into each season, and then each month.

Now, write the vision and make it plain. Determine exactly what your goal is for this month, and make sure it is a reasonable goal. If you can’t reach it by the end of this month, then you need to ask yourself…how long am I prepared to work on this goal?

It’s easy in internet marketing to lose sight of our goals, and to get on a treadmill. But if your internet marketing business isn’t getting you anywhere, then you need to find out why.

How to make every day count

This video is so inspirational, I would call it almost as fundamental as having a daily schedule.

If you get this one thing right, you will always succeed.
Here’s to your success!

P.S.>The Rock represents Jesus

All of us have things in our life that we would say take priority over other things, but we don’t always live like it. In the video (which I still strongly suggest you watch, you don’t need speakers to get the point), there is a man with some sand, some water, and one big rock. He wants to fit all of these things in the vessel, but there’s only one way to do it…and that’s by putting the main, or “meatiest”, pieces in first, in the proper order. I think the symbolism is obvious here. As internet marketers, we need to “seek first the kingdom” and keep the main thing the main thing. I’ll write more on this tomorrow. Please watch the video even if you have read about this concept before. It is powerful!

Ordering your day

Ordering your day.
Charles Schwab who owns the famous investment company which bears his name, tells a story he had with a mentor. Mr. Schwab asked the mentor to tell him how to be more productive. Rather than scheduling a mentoring session, the advisor simply told him, “Mr. Schwab, I will give you one piece of advice, and if you think it is worth anything, you can pay me $10,000.”
Charles agreed. One week later, Charles wrote the advisor a check for $10,000.
What do you think his advice was?
When I first heard this story, I really thought that the secret was stocks. Or maybe some other investment strategy, like buying up precious metals.
No, the secret that Charles Schwab received is so brain dead simple, that I don’t think he would have even looked at it twice if the advisor had not designated a value to it.
It really is that simple.
And that profound.
In fact, it is so profitable, I would attach a million dollars to it’s worth.
So what was the advice?
I almost hesitate to tell you lest you find it too elementary.

Write down the three most important things you need to do today.
