Here's to you making today highly productive!
First, a quick update on your daily charge - because of the responses and requests received, we will be delivering this earlier moving forward (5:00 am eastern). Some of you have already put these emails and challenges into your day, and we completely understand why you would like these sooner.
Our 1% improvement for this week is to help you improve and fine-tune your morning routine. Or, as we call it... your morning bookend (which can now include your Daily Charge).
A powerful morning routine sets your pace of performance and production.
Your morning routine is going to be just that...yours. It's unique to your goals, targets, and promises. Commit to the habits and disciplines that help you achieve a higher level of performance.
Prepared and primed for success. Like a collegiate football team ready to sprint out of the tunnel on game-day, your morning routine must build...
Before we get into it today, I want to say thank you!
Our mission with the Daily Charge is to help real estate agents, lenders, insurance brokers, and small business entrepreneurs make incremental improvements on a daily basis and you are a part of us fulfilling that mission.
If we have helped you look at your schedule in a different light this week, would you help us by forwarding this to 3 of your business colleagues or friends who might also benefit?
And now, let's wrap up May with challenging your plan for June!
Not having a schedule doesn't mean you have freedom. It means you invite chaos, disorganization, and other agendas to impede on your performance and production.
There are key disciplines and habits needed so that a schedule become the living/breathing tool that you need it to be:
This week's topic has focused entirely on helping you invest your time more efficiently so you receive a higher return, and you have the opportunity to do what truly matters inside of your business. If you've missed any of this week, feel free to catch up here.
How and what we schedule is taken too lightly. It is nothing less than bulldog negotiations - your agenda vs the agenda of others.
The feeling of obligation coupled with a fear of failure causes us to say yes to actions, tasks, meetings, and a calendar that is not going to move our business and lives forward.
Completing a daily preview and review of your schedule will reveal if you are truly committed to your goals and targets. Meaning, it will show you:
Here's to making it a great Wednesday!
If you missed your daily charge from yesterday, I would encourage you to go back and read it here. It'll provide some insight into what we're talking about today.
With that in mind, what you place inside your schedule is crucial to your performance and success. Distractions come into play, you will 100% experience resistance, and you will be tempted to detach from what is truly important activity.
Distractions and resistance are extraordinarily clever. They camouflage and mask themselves as opportunity, priority, and perceived risk if you don't pay attention to them.
It is our job to have integrity, take responsibility, quickly recognize them, and execute on our plan through our schedule.
We cannot allow ourselves to take the easy route. Designate and dedicate the majority of time to meaningful work that causes your business to truly move forward.
Your level of success is hinged on how you...
I hope you make today ridiculously productive!
Because of the conversations we had last week with people in our coaching programs, your daily charges this week are going to revolve around the concept of "time management".
And, yes, I do use the word concept intentionally because of how often it's mis-used and abused in business. In fact, what we typically hear, and where we will start, is "I just need to put it on my schedule, block it out, and I'll get it done."
So, let's tackle this idea of "time blocking" and shed some light on what truly needs to happen in order for time blocking to work for you.
You become great at time blocking only when you become great at planning and prioritization.
Time blocking is a performance tool... nothing more, nothing less.
It only works when there is:
Set intent and purpose with every...
I hope you make your Friday a productive one!
As you know, we've focused this week on taking immediate action. It's something that is often overlooked and is a constant topic that I hear inside our discovery calls. And, with what we are experiencing right now, it is more important than ever to become a start, own this current moment in time, and step up to the challenge every day.
Identify as a starter. Someone who:
In a world where society and external environment can be altered overnight, it is no longer a choice to take action - it's a responsibility.
Moment to moment. Step by step. Taking incremental action builds momentum and confidence. Own and dominate the moment in front of you.
"Life gives you plenty of...
Happy and Productive Thursday Morning!
We started talking about taking action yesterday and how we can eliminate fear by stepping in immediately. Because some of you responded with questions about the resistance we experience in starting, let's stay on this, drive it home, and provide even more reason for you to level up.
Failing to start is a result of not considering the order of consequences.
The first consequence is usually based on avoiding short-term pain. However, the second and third levels of consequences, when fully considered, are significantly more painful.
There is pain in taking action:
If there is no pain in the action you take, you are settling for less than your potential.
To start taking critical action (or complete critical tasks) requires nothing more than the clear and definitive decision that you are...
Enough talk. People are impacted, influenced, and served through your actions.
And, your impact, influence, and level of success are exponentially amplified when your actions have persistent direction.
Enthusiasm has a half-life. The very instant you delay taking action, 3 things happen:
Immediate action suffocates fear, reduces future procrastination, and builds your enthusiasm toward you achieving your goals.
Each day we are faced with an ultimatum: take meaningful action that creates forward movement OR delay the achievement of your goals. You have the ability to determine your future through your actions.
"inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home...
The official re-introduction of the Daily Charge is here....
With a little twist.
Our hope is that the Charge will serve as a staple in your morning routine and we will be structuring it as a 3-2-1 countdown to your day. Meaning, you will get 3 ideas, 2 quotes, and 1 question (or challenge) for the day - all with the focus on helping you be more efficient as you build a sustainable, scale-able, and predictable business no matter the market.
Distractions have an uncanny way of masking themselves as opportunity.
Performance in business (and life) is not an automatic. It is intentional, deliberate, and requires a high level of integrity in execution.
When the plan is set, all attention and energy must be on what needs to be done now to prepare for success in spite of the uncontrollable.
It's about the relationship, not the transaction.
If you've been following me long enough, you know that is one of my primary platforms in building a business...any business.
In fact, my very first coaching client, I asked that he correct his language when he said that he needed to come to every relationship in contribution. That is certainly part of the process and yet I asked that he make a simple addition to his statement that would shift his focus and mindset...that we not only need to come to every relationship in contribution - we also have to release any and all expectations of something in return for that contribution.
I'm writing this today because I've spoken with enough real estate agents (and coaches) in the past month who are experiencing sustainability challenges in today's market, and almost every instance is because of a lack of focus on relationship whether it's with their clients or their team members.
Now, while there is more to this story that I'll continue...
