Shiny Objects

Posted on 15. Feb, 2014 by Julia Mitchell in Encouragement

We have been distracted by them  …. that next shiny object which takes us off the path that we were on.  I am certainly guilty of  it. When it seems all difficult we look at a way of making easier or so it seems.

Maybe by being connected on Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, youtube, pinterest, google hangout, webinar, instagram, blog, squeeze page etc will make me more money.  Wrong!

Think about the 80/20 principle.

80% of your results will come from 20% of your efforts so if you are doing all of these things how do you even know what the 20% is.

I’m preaching to myself here.  I have so got off track it is not funny.  They pull to be in the next best thing, you know it’s ground floor, get in know get the overflow, over-spill, do nothing,  bla bla bla, etc etc etc.

So how do you get back on track!

  • Decided what the goal is you are trying to achieve!

  • Ask yourself the questions,

  1. Will this benefit my business?
  2. How will this accomplish my long term goal?
  3. Is the timing right?
  4. Why do I want to do this?
  5. How much time effort and energy will it take to get this next thing happening?
  6. Will it make me any money?
  7. Is it in line with my goals, values, vision?
  • If you come up with a no then, unsubscribe yourself from the email list, facebook group, unfriend the person or the group or the page.

  • Remove the distraction!!!!

  • Stay focused and don’t give up you will make it :)
