Today I want to talk to you about something serious…
It’s something that’s often overlooked, yet it’s one of those things that’s absolutely essential to your success.
I want to talk to you today about ROI.
No, I’m not talking about a Return On Investment (though that’s extremely important, too).
I want to talk to you about…
The Other ROI – Rate of Implementation
Implementation – and the rate at which you do it – is the key to success.
As a Lead Coach here at Lurn, I work with tons of students day in and day out. As with all things in life, there are some people who succeed and others who do not. I’ve seen it first-hand time and time again…
Even though every student can have access to the same systems, the same training and to all the help and support that our coaches offer, what I’ve found is that…
Those Who Succeed, Do Something
And those who don’t, are notoriously the people who don’t do one thing.
And this one little thing is IMPLEMENTATION.
You see, it’s not the ideas that will make you money. If it was, we’d probably all be millionaires, right?!
True success comes from implementing your ideas. It’s doing the work and getting the results that make the difference.
But, let’s take it a step further…
It’s not just “getting it done” that leads to success. It’s getting it done quickly.
There’s an old saying that, “Money is attracted to speed.”
I would have to agree with that.
Too many people spend (or you could say ‘waste’) a lot of time trying to get everything “perfect”.
I used to be just as guilty as anyone, so I’m not pointing fingers. But, way to often…
Perfection and procrastination
are one in the same.
We get what’s called, “analysis paralysis” and we stifle ourselves. We hold ourselves back from completing the task (by trying to be perfect) and that leads to hold ups, hang ups and putting things on the back burner.
Before we know it, things are put off, we lose motivations and ultimately interest. Sadly, what started out well-intentioned, turns into “I’ll do it later” and later turns into never.
But, as with most things, there IS a simple solution. Here are…
3 Easy Steps to Get You Running Full Steam Ahead:
1) Just Get Started
In the iconic words of Nike, “Just Do It.” You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it done.
Put this, or some other motivational phrase that works for you, on a Post-It right next to your computer to remind you of that. Just get started and get it done!
2) Leverage the Power of NOW
Take an IMMEDIATE step toward your goal, Right Now.
Maybe it’s a phone call or sending an email. Perhaps, it’s uploading a video or finding an outsourcer. No matter what it is that you need to do, DO SOMETHING toward achieving your goal.
You’ll often find that 1 step leads to 2 and you’ll be off and running in no time at all.
3) Keep Taking Little Steps
NEVER leave a goal-setting session or the thought of completing your goal, without taking some kind of action toward accomplishing that goal.
The little things add up!
So, right now now, while you’re thinking about it…
- Get Started
- Leverage the Power of Now and
- Don’t leave this post without taking some kind of action towards accomplishing your goal 🙂
