3 Tips to Help Push Forward Daily!!!

Can you be honest with yourself and answer this question. Do you push forward daily?

I hope you are not one of the people who just hope success finds them and saves them out of their miserable lives. My hunch is you are different…..

…..Why else would you be reading this article. People who wish and hope do not take action. Just reading this far shows either you just love my writing, or you want to find a strategy on how to push yourself forward.

In this post, I’ll cover some strategies on how to make sure you are maximizing your time and pushing yourself forward everyday until you hit your breakthrough.

Is Success Real !?!

Success is what you make of it. Success for you is probably not the same as it is for me. However, there are some core success principles that everyone needs to learn before success comes to them.

Most people do not have a success oriented mindset which is why people struggle in home businesses. If you follow a couple of key principles, you can drastically change the outlook of your life in a short period of time.

Plan and Schedule Your Success

In a home businesses, you have to run your business off a system of planning and scheduling. Planning and scheduling is the lifeblood of your business and your life. With that in mind, I have a couple of questions for you.

Have you set a daily “hours of operation” to work your business?

Do you run your business off of a calendar system?

If you answered no to either of those questions, then you are not taking the necessary steps to build a sustainable business.

I hope if you are reading this post you want more out of your life. If you are part-time in your business then you NEED to make scheduling your time a MUST.

My mentor always says, “Show me your calendar, and I will tell you how your business is going.” Leaders in this industry are very disciplined about using a calendar system to run their business.

Part-Time vs. Full-Time

If you are part-time in building your home business, you need to be religious about sticking to your calendar system. You have a limited amount of time to build your dreams when you are not at your J.O.B. Take care of your precious time by following a system. If you do this for a few years, your situation could be vastly different.

I applied this in my business when I was part-time. I was extremely disciplined about putting in the time and scheduling my work time. It wasn’t always fun putting in the hours, but the reward of being home everyday with my family is more than I could have imagined.

Now, if you are full-time, be careful!!!

There are so many time wasters in this world. Your time can literally disappear. If you are not very disciplined at staying to a schedule, you will lose chunks of your day to non-income producing activities.

The top pro’s in the world track and schedule everything. If you are full-time and need to go to another level in your business, start tracking everything. Write everything down.

After you gather enough data, you will see where and when you are losing time and how you can maximize the time you do have.

Show Me the Calendar!!!

You will probably agree with me that there are  too many calendars to choose from. It’s confusing and hard to choose the best one.

You just need to find a system that works for you and stick with it. My wife and I use the BestSelf Journal, and we love it. I will give you some more details on that in a little bit.

Build the daily habit of tracking your day with your calendar. Schedule all of your appointments in the calendar. Do not trust your memory. WRITE everything down.

You have to evaluate your business everyday. Look at your activities and see if they helped or hurt your business. Look at all the conversations and ask yourself if you can learn from them.

How often do you think real “Pro’s” look at their schedules? If you want what the top people have, track and schedule everything.   

My wife and I sit down everyday at least 3 times per day and go over our objectives, calendars, and goals. We treat our work as a business. We have clearly defined goals which push us forward everyday.

We personally use the following Calendar System:

  1. We book everything “Big” like trips, vacations, events, meeting, etc. in Google Calendars.
  2. We use The BestSelf Journal for our day to day operations. I love using this system because I can track my whole day. I track goals, targets, wins, lessons learned, and hour by hour activities. You can check it out here at this link Click Here to Check Out Journal

Great Questions Bring Great Answers

We ask one simple question: Does this activity/task push us forward?

If it does, we will dig a little deeper into that activity/task.

If it does not push the business forward, we throw it out.

We have one goal: Push ourselves forward everyday!!!

I really enjoy the shift in our mindset about business. Start developing a mindset focused on pushing your business forward everyday. When we started implementing these tips in our business and life, everything changed for us. If it could happen for us, it can happen for you.
