Productivity – Your Habits

I know that sounds simplistic but it’s important to know what your end goal is. If we don’t know that, how do we know when we get there?

If you don’t  know  the destination you won’t know when you have arrived!

With the Buffett Method and Ivy Lee Method, we know the end result is completion of the task at hand. That is the goal. We can’t move forward to the next task until the first one is completed. If we don’t complete it today, we carry it over to tomorrow. It’s very simple. There are no variances.

The problem with many people is they want a way out. They want a variance. You cannot give yourself an out. People tell themselves they want to succeed. They say they will do anything to succeed come hell or high water—unless my Internet goes out.

That’s not an excuse! Go to a WIFI spot or a friend’s house. Work offline at whatever you can to keep on schedule. There are other things that can be done to bring you to your goal. Then once the internet comes back, pick up the task and complete it.

One of the reasons people don’t succeed is because they are too comfortable. They fall back on things like, “If my Internet business doesn’t succeed, I can always fall back on my job.”

The reason I sold vacuum cleaners and was so good at it was because I didn’t have a plan B. I had nothing to fall back on. If I didn’t sell, I didn’t eat. Period. That’s a pretty good motivation to keep you on track!

Let’s look at another person who had strict strategies and rules for himself. Dwight D. Eisenhower. Eisenhower was a man of unbelievable accomplishments in addition to being the president of the United States for eight years. Do a search on him in Google. You’ll be surprised by all his accomplishments.

How did he do all this? He was a stickler for order and rules. He came up with a method that’s now call the “Eisenhower Box”. Many people have taken variations of this and tried to band it as their own system. I feel that’s a total rip-off.
