Entrepreneurs are wired to be committed. If you don’t do the work, you might not have a business—or at least not a financially solvent one. Yet even the most committed among us can sometimes struggle with keeping those commitments. Even if you have the best of intentions, it’s often easier to rationalize or make excuses than to consistently keep commitments. Commitment is like a muscle in your body; if you work on it and use it regularly, you can make it stronger.
Remember commitments are a reflection of your character. No one likes being called or thought of as all talk, no action, but when you commit to something and don’t follow through, you lose credibility. Do it too many times and you are thought of as unreliable. Next time you make a commitment, consider that you are putting your character on the line. If you don’t keep your commitments, it says things about you that probably don’t align with how you see yourself. Keep your commitments and you will be a person of integrity. Everyone feels better when their words and actions match.
- The Overachiever vs. The Superachiever (3 of 4)
Here is a simple (but don’t let the simplicity fool you!) but PROFOUND plan to immediately multiply your productive output many times over your current rate. I’m not talking about activity (more work, more time). I said productivity (results, money, accomplishment, goal attainment)… all the while, living much more stress free and carefree existence (more time for family, fun and hobbies!).
Let me outline a 5-point Superachiever Productivity Plan for you… this is what I do.
No. 1—Plan tomorrow today. Jim Rohn taught me, “Don’t start your day until it is finished on paper.” And the best time to do this is the day before.
This is an important and many times not so easy-to-keep discipline. The last thing I do before I shut down for the day, by routine, is to review and complete the plan for the following day. The entire process takes less than 10 minutes. What you don’t want to do is wake up and then figure out what you should be doing—it’s way too late by then. Chances are the rest of the world will have decided what it wants you to do and it will control your day, instead of you. You will be reacting instead of creating.
Let me take you through that simple planning process, since the key to brilliant execution is always brilliant planning…. CLICK HERE TO READ REST OF POST
