Impacting *everything else*

Q: How do you/I know what One Thing to pick and focus on?

^^^Good question in from Elite Member Ntathu to yesterday’s email about picking what to focus on.

In the book, The ONE Thing, authors Gary Keller and Jay Papasan advocate for finding:

“the one thing, that by doing, would impact everything else.”

Filtered through my eyes, it’s:

  1. What’s your number one goal?
  2. What would increase your odds most of hitting your number 1 goal.

Do that.

A question your could use to figure that out:

“What would save me the most time in regards to getting to my number 1 goal?”

Sometimes that answer is, “send an email” or “ask questions”.

Other times it’s “make that major decision” or “get task X done”.

<let’s bring our attention back to our conversation around balance the other day>

It’s easy to take all of this and say, “what about life?”

Well, sweetie…

This is life.

We live in an era where it’s never been easier to start a business online, there’s never been more entrepreneurs than right now.

Therefore standing out becomes the name of the game,

And, in terms of standing out, sometimes it’s the longest one left standing who wins.

The cure:

You have to lay it all on the proverbial table.

To quote Yoda:

“Do or do not. There is no try.”

Trying means focusing on logos, biz cards, and your social media image.

Doing means getting clients and setting up an environment of people, processes, and things that influence and directly impact your success.

OK…

It’s time for you to reflect on what your “one thing” is,

and time for me to continue doing.
