Preview 5... Before we get to far into the series. I would suggest that you get your hands on a few notebooks. I use the kind that have 8½ x 11 pages with the wire spring-like binder that hold the notebook...
You need to ask yourself these questions about your production.
Preview 11… Speaking of asking questions. When you're asking those hard questions at the end of the day, while looking in the mirror, look yourself directly in the eye and ask yourself these hard questions:
- How many sales did I make today?
- How many people did I recruit today?
- How many people did I email today?
- How many people did I point to my website today?
- How many people did I follow up with today?
- How many people did I share my business with today?
- How many people did I share my product with today?
- How many business cards did I pass out today?
- How many?
You see folks, that's really not hard stuff to do, that's part of your DMO (daily method of operation). That's part of your activity for the day.
That's part of your activity today. Today's, what's important. Today is what counts. What you did yesterday doesn't count. What you did last week doesn't count. What you did last month doesn't count. Last month isn't important. Last week isn't important either. What you did last year isn't important anymore. You could have been a superstar last week or you could have been number one last week. But that doesn't matter.
What matters is, today.
What's most important is, today. What you do today, is going to determine where your business is going to be next week, next month and where your business will be next year! And remember, you don't get paid today for what you do today. You'll get paid next week, next month and next year for what you do today. That's the way it works. You have to focus on today. Forget about yesterday. Forget about tomorrow and focus on today. Live for today, live for the now and live for the present. Today is what is most important.
Today is most important because you're filling the pipeline everyday. Everyday you're keeping the pipeline full. You're pouring it in everyday. Some today, some tomorrow, some the next day and some more the next day and then pretty soon, next week, next month, next year, it's still coming out of the other end of the pipeline. However, for that to happen, you have to keep filling it up everyday …consistently, day after day after day, everyday. That's why your activity everyday, today, is so important.
See, you can lie to the other people about how busy you are today.
Repeat. You can lie to the other people about how busy you are today. You can tell them whatever you want to tell them. You can tell them anything. However, you "cannot" afford to lie to yourself about how busy you are today. It doesn't work that way!
You have to be honest with yourself about what you're doing and what you're not doing. See, sometime, you lie to yourself without even knowing it. You think you're busy, but really, you're not. Sometime, you're just spinning your wheels, not going anywhere. Sometime, you're just going through the motion. Sometime, you think you're busy, sometime you sound busy, sometime you look busy and sometime you may even act busy.
And it's real easy to lie to yourself when you don't hold yourself accountable to your DMO.
It's also easy to lie to yourself when you don't keep good records. It's easy to lie to yourself when the only record that you do keep, are the records in your head. It's easy to think you're busy and you're doing more than you really are doing. Don't lie to yourself!
Because, whenever you do ask yourself what you've been doing, like what was my production today, your mind isn’t going to be honest with you. Your mind isn’t going to give you the truth. Your mind isn’t going to give you the facts. Your mind isn’t going to tell you just what you want to hear to make you feel good about yourself and how great you are!!
That's the way it works. Don't trust it.
Don't trust it, because, if you listen to that stuff, you're going to be way off spot …after all, it seemed like you did such a good job today, it seemed like you worked very hard all day long. It seemed like you accomplished lots and lots of stuff. In fact, your minds going to tell you that you had so much production today, that you might as well reward yourself and take the rest of the day off! Have you ever had that feeling? Don't fall for that trap. Don't lie to yourself.
The only way to get the true facts about how busy you are and how much production you've produced, is to write it down. GAP, grab a pen and write your progress down. Don't trust your fortune to your memory...you'll lose it every time!
The only way to get the answer's you need about what you're doing with your DMO is to write it down. Example, I personally use an hour-by-hour day planner and it works just fine for me. It keeps me on time and right on track. At the end of the day I know exactly what my production was for the day...no guessing. Soooo, do whatever works for you. That's a "have to.”
Are you writing you DMO?
See, you can alter the facts in your head, but you can't alter the facts if you write them down on paper, GAP, you either did it or you didn't do it. There's no disputing what you did or didn't do, when it's right there in black and white. That way, you can't lie to yourself about how busy you was or what your production was for the day. Then, when you have all that stuff logged into your day planner, you won't be able to lie to yourself anymore. Make sense?
At the end of everyday, look into the mirror and ask the important question...what was my production today? Did what I accomplish today, reflect my personal best?
And I don’t want to end this article without reminding you that when you look in the mirror …take a good look. Are you feeling tired and run down ...perhaps you need a pick me up for the day. Then don't forget to drink plenty of clean, fresh, filtered water with two-four ounces of the "best tasting Aloe Vera" everyday.
