How To Kick Start Your Business And Skyrocket Your Success
by Clifford Mee
This will make some people angry as hell, but it's time
to debunk the myth of 'Time Management' while sharing
the real secret of the super successful.
Let's face it, many so called "business gurus" tell us to
'manage time better' or to become 'ruthless with time' if
we want to achieve their level of success.
You cannot manage time itself. It continues along happily
doing its thing, whatever you do.
I read countless systems on 'time management' and the
majority take so long to implement and keep track of, you
get even less done than you did before!
If it's impossible to manage time then manage your actions
instead. This is the key to launching new projects,
completing existing ones and to at least doubling your
current output without having to do any more work.
Self-improvement guru, Tony Robbins, said "Action is
destiny." He's spot on. If you start managing your actions,
the impact on what you get done will amaze you.
*** Your 5 Simple Steps To Action Management ***
- Write down a master list of actions you need to do
which directly lead to income generation.
Tip - I suggest having at least 6 items on your daily action
list. Write this up the day before you use it. Depending on
how many of these you complete determines whether you need
to add more items to the list or whether you need to break
the items down into smaller chunks instead.
- Set aside between 1 and 5 'Prime Action Hours' every
day where you will do nothing except the most important
income generating activities. Refer to your master list
and immediately cross each item out once it's done.
Tip - During your prime action hours you do NOT: take phone
calls, check your email, break for meetings, chat with
fellow office workers or read the mail. You need to get
current outside distractions to support your new routine.
If you run a home office get agreement from your family to
only interrupt you in an emergency during your prime
- Get Yourself a Timer and set it to 50 or 55 minutes.
You work without distractions for this long during each
prime action hour.
Tip - This gives you more efficiency by making you more
accountable for what you do in each prime action hour. It
also lets you know when to take an important quick break.
- Carry a pen and paper or a voice recorder with you
during your breaks between any prime action hours.
Tip - During the breaks you'll find new ideas, thoughts
and strategies will surface in your mind. The brain often
makes new connections as you relax after a very focused
session. Make sure you jot them down to record them.
You'll find them invaluable. Don't neglect to do this, an
unrecorded idea is usually lost forever.
- Set yourself a weekly income target. When you reach
it, reward yourself how you like. You don't need to do any
more prime action hours for the rest of the week. Revise
your weekly income target upwards at least every 90 days.
Tip - Having a weekly target gives your prime action hours
a specific goal to achieve. Purpose is the most important
ingredient when it comes to action.
Remember you will need to concentrate on other aspects of
business like meetings, staff interaction, emails and phone
calls etc. In some businesses it's realistic to do a
maximum of five prime action hours each day without
impacting too much on the other necessary parts of the
Some people will only manage one prime action hour each
day. That's okay. Over a year this will still amount to
an enormous difference in your income generation.
Don't make the mistake of dismissing or forgetting what you
just read. There's real power in this quick and easy 5
step action management system.
In fact I urge you to start right now. Get out a piece of
paper and write down your master list for tomorrow. It
doesn't matter if you can only manage one prime action hour
to start with. You can increase the number as you create
more focus for yourself.
