Lights, Camera, Action!
How long is your to-do list? Does it stress you out just thinking about it? Stop thinking and take action! Completing one small item on your to-do list can give you enough energy to tackle the next item. Before you know it, you’ll be on a roll and feeling great about it.
Mind clutter lowers energy. Every unopened email, unreturned call and unorganized space uses critical brain energy. Your mental energy is your most valuable tool. Your ideas and thoughts are unique to you, and can be your most important differentiation in a fast and furious business climate. What if you took 1-2 days to just get it all done? How clear could you think and what types of issues could you solve? Even if it just lowered your stress it would be worth the invested focus time. Before you know it, you’ll be tackling one of your larger projects with more energy and a clearer mind.
Maybe your issue isn’t the small stuff. Maybe your calls are returned and your email inbox is clean, but you still just can’t get a good start on the biggest project on your to-do list. Perhaps you need to launch a new website or find a new salesperson. The same rule applies. Just take action. Make a list of the ideal features of the new site. Schedule a meeting with other shareholders to discuss what type of salesperson is ideal. Give your mentor a call and bounce ideas off of them.
Action creates energy, and all you need is a little more energy to get the important projects going. You may think that taking that first meaningful action today requires more energy than you have, but that’s not true. You have enough energy to get a small item done, and that’s what starts the energy snowball. Also, visualization is important, and a little bit of time to visualize success can help you take action in the right direction, but don’t visualize too long. All great visions are shortly followed by great actions. If you need more help getting started or getting inspired, contact us
