Bulk into Steel No Gym Required

Ever get a morning where you just don’t feel like doing anything?
Maybe you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, or it’s hormones, or not enough sleep. I bet whatever it is is enough to justify piddling around and getting nothing done for your business. I had such a morning last week.

Do you know what ‘saved’ me? It was nothing exotic really.

And no, it wasn’t a quick pick-me-up Tony Robbins’ video, or my fourth cup of coffee, or a nice deposit in the checking account. No, no. It is quite lame actually.

What saved my day?
A blank piece of paper.
Yes, I just started to write down all the things I had to do, and then I went over to my computer and typed it into my “notepad” (PC people try Text Edit)

And now every night before I leave my office, I add to the list any action I need to take the next day.

And every morning before I dive into the business day, I take a look at that action list.

Important: make sure what you write is an action, not a goal. For instance, my list last night’s list included:
write Tuesday’s blog, set agenda for CAHPA meeting,  look at new toy samples.
They were not goals like: hire new recruits, book more home parties, increase sales, etc.

Try this for a week. Build it into your daily routine.  Do it, and I’ll bet you will have done more in the one week than you have for the past 6 months!

Action, any action you take, is motivating! Start making that list…
