In the book, The Last Lecture, which has inspired millions, Randy Pausch says, “Time must be explicitly managed just like money.”

No truer statement could be said about your business. To be successful, it’s very simple but yet the plan (your activity) must be explicitly managed.

Here’s the formula for success:

  1. Determine how much time you are going to spend in your business on a daily basis.
  2. Determine how many people you commit to contacting about your business each day.
  3. Then… just do it! Make sure that you do it every day!

Your success rate is in direct proportion to the time you spend working the business. Whatever your goal is… whether its 30 minutes a day or 5 hours a day – the important thing is to do it every day.

Here’s To Your Success,

Until next time!

Prosperously yours,

Jerry

One day you’re standing in front of your bathroom mirror brushing your teeth. As your working the brush back and forth across your teeth, your thoughts start to drift. And you see yourself standing in that exact same spot doing the exact same thing 10 years later.

You’re startled and start to wonder, what will have changed 10 years from now? You’re answer seemed to be “nothing”, unless you begin to put some things in motion NOW.

So where do you begin? What do you do today? (You are probably reading this blog because you are looking for a way to earn extra part-time income. So the example I will be using is along these lines, however the steps and ideas can be used in reaching many different types of goals you may have.)

 First I encourage you to become aware of how and where you spend your time (a few posts ago we spent one week recording and analyzing our time, if you did not do this I encourage you to start there.) Why am I sharing this with you? There’s a reason. I WANT YOU TO BE MORE PRODUCTIVE. You can’t be until you realize that there’s a problem with how you spend your productive time. I want you to be successful.

The second thing I want to make sure you do at least within a week is to decide on what service or product you would like to offer.

Deciding on your product or service there are three essential ingredients for what works and what doesn’t. If you keep these three essential ingredients in mind and apply them in everything that you do, you should succeed in most projects that you undertake, if you have a good offer.

The first and most important thing is to solve a problem. In this day and age people have a wide variety of problems. Let’s face it, we all want solutions to our problems quickly and easily.

Solving a problem, whether it’s a problem of time, money or any other problem that you can consider is paramount to being successful in your endeavor. Frankly, I believe it’s important for any business to solve the problems that people have.

Once upon a time there was a company that was marketing a support pillow. Most of the people that ordered the pillow had neck pain. It is a common problem. Because of that, they were able to teach people where their problem originated. Regular pillows have no head or neck support. A foam pillow does. They taught people about a problem and then they showed them how to solve it quickly and easily at a fair price.

So today I would like to leave you with this thought – Pick a target and take action. It’s awfully hard to hit a target that you can’t see. Yet many people walk through life aimlessly from Friday to Friday with no important target in mind.

Here’s To Your $uccess,

Until next time!

Prosperously yours,

Jerry
