Everybody has “to do” lists. In fact, sometimes we have so many things to do that we can easily get over loaded and burned out. And when that happens, our profits soon plummet and our business struggles. All those “to dos” can drive you crazy if you let them.
Something that keeps me sane (one of the things anyway), is something called CHUNKING. I take my BIG tasks…and I break them into smaller tasks. That way I don’t feel so overwhelmed.
For example, I have a product I’m launching mid to late June. There is A LOT of work that goes into making a product, having it approved on ClickBank, getting affiliates, sales copy and blah, blah, blah. BUT! I don’t have to do all of those things in one day. That would be ludicrous. I simply make a list of things that need to get done that day. Usually 6 things. Since I work 6 days a week (okay…7…but I LOVE what I do), I can do 36 to 42 things a week that move me closer to my goal. If I work 6 days a week…that’s 144 items complete in a month.
That’s 432 items in 3 months…and 1728 items a year! CRIKEES! That’s a lot of work! But…it’s only 6 things a day right?
And…do you know what makes up a successful life? A series of successful years, months and days. And how is one to accomplish that? Just chunk it down…and get to work.
And on that note, that completes # 4 on today’s list. Write a blog post. Check!
P.S. If you’re curious about the product launch, here’s the product I created. You’ll discover how to use the power of personal branding to set yourself apart from the crowd and succeed in the 21st Century. http://personalbranding21.com/
