When we want to start a business, we put a lot of thought into what kind of business we want to do. We decide where we want the business, when we want the business to begin and usually how much money we want to make. What we don’t think of is the process we need to have in place to be successful in our business.
This four step process will enhance you success in most any business.
STEP 1: Accountability: Being accountable means you must stay on track if you want to reach your goal. When you work from home or alone in a shop or office, who are you accountable to? You need to be accountable to someone other than yourself. It may be a friend that wants to see you succeed. At the end of each day send a text, e-mail or call that person & talk about whether you reached your goal that day or not and why. It will help to keep you focused when you answer those questions from someone other than yourself.
STEP 2: Develop Activity: First you need to have your goal in writing so you know what it is you are working to achieve. Then create a “What Needs To Be Done” list. Put everything involved in this business on the list. Write down the things you know have to be done. Then do a little research into this type of business and see if there’s anything you didn’t write down. If there is, add it to your list. Writing your to do list should be done a daily basis so you are aware of exactly what you need to do each day to achieve success.
STEP 3: Prioritize: Go through your list of things to be done and put each thing in order of its necessity to be accomplished. When you’ve completely gone through the list make sure that each item is in the proper sequence to accomplish your goal. There may be some things that can be changed around if you find they work better in a different order. It has to work for you.
STEP 4: Execution: Take massive focused action. This simply means, get busy and get it done. Focus on your goal and the steps you need to take to make it happen.
