How To Develop and Follow Your “Business Route”
With the age of GPS Navigation Systems we are learning to follow directions quite well when it comes to something we are not really interested in. In other words, we aren’t, in most cases, really interested in figuring out how to get from point A to point B…Just interested in getting there!
What if we took the same “follow the plan” position for our business? What if we actually had a plan that we could actually follow day in and day out?
Here is a thought for us to ponder: Why do our “Could Do’s” overpower our “Should Do’s”? In other words, why do we procrastinate sometimes? Is it because we don’t want to do something or is it sometimes because the “something to do” has yet to be identified, planned and laid out in a fashion that triggers our belief that it will actually work?
I have discovered that most procrastinate planning more than acting! Yes, that is right…we put off planning more than acting. Why? The planning process simply looks too big and we actually believe we will get to it Monday…or Tuesday…or next month…or… you get it.
So, let’s look at some rules or guidelines that will help us plan.
1: Do the should do’s before the could do’s. You could go to lunch, but you should plan next month. You could take tomorrow off, but you should have a staff planning session. In other words, we should all work more on prioritizing our time. It isn’t about “time management” but about “task management”. In other words, what tasks we fill our time with makes all the difference in the world.
2: Ask yourself what you want next year to be like and then work toward that. Too many people plan only looking outward and I am a huge fan of planning against what you “want to see happen” and then discover what you want, then what it will take to get it and then what you need to do today, tomorrow and next week to accomplish this.
3: Take action: The top 14,000 people in the real estate industry that we have interviewed have 3 things in common. They set goals, take action and never quit until they have accomplished what they want to accomplish. Remember, action is the engine!
When it comes to making 2020 a great year, do everything you can to keep your planning processes simple as we tend to procrastinate the complicated and tackle the simple.
Make it a great year.
