This week marks the start of a new year; what an opportunity for a fresh start. You should be on your way for a great year in 2012. 2011 is gone, gone, gone, never to be again! Thank Goodness! We can now take dead aim on 2012. No more sitting in the trenches waiting for this market to take off. In 2012 you will be reaching out and making the market yours!
Successful people achieve mastery through the details. Meaning they focus in on one thing first and then move on. They show up…everyday…with a plan…and knock off one thing…then another…then another…Have you made you plan yet?
Here is the key question to focus in on this week. It is the question that will absolutely make or break the year 2012 and beyond.
What are the things that I can do, that would make the biggest impact in my business?
Success is not built on being lucky. Success is built on mastery. You have a craft, it’s called Sales. You need to practice to master your craft just as a doctor, lawyer, or sportsman of any kind. Once mastery has occurred our careers and lives move to new levels of opportunity. We can’t create mastery by working on ten things at once. We have to work methodically with focus on the one thing that has the highest priority and then delegate the lower priority items to others.
We need to start the year off with renewed focus on our time and where we invest it. Are we spending enough time on the high payoff activities of our business? The control of our most precious resource, our time, will lead us to the purpose and vision we have set for our business.
Your ability to generate the income and lifestyle you desire is within YOUand no one else. Creating momentum out of the chute is critical. Make sure that you are applying the daily disciplines everyday. And for those of you who are stuck, let me know where I can help!
Wishing you a Happy and Successful New Year!
