Well let me first say HAPPY NEW YEAR! If you are reading this blog post then you have already started your year off with massive action because this is not just one of your regular blog posts about mindset nor is this a motivational piece that makes you feel good.
This is the first post into the mind of a serial entrepreneur. It is also a re-launching of my blog as my other personal blog was destroyed by viruses. Now that if that sounds strange coming from a cloud technology consultant, there was a lesson learned and I will tell you about that in future blog posts on website backups and security, but I digress.
2017 The Year Of Massive Action
Well I am hopeful that you feel the same way about this year and taking MASSIVE ACTION !!!! I should not have said MASSIVE ACTION I should have said Massive Right Action which we will refer to as “MRA”.
The reality for most of us is that we do take action but is it based on MRA ?
Ask yourself at the end of the day, “Did my actions help lead me to one of my SMART Goals?”
Asking yourself this simple question daily would allow you to focus in on MRA.
Now I have been guilty of straying away from my SMART goals … actually I started with creating this blog.
Now the SMART Goal was to have my new blog launched within 3 days, but I started listening to the voices of perfection in my head and the other voice of distraction namely FB, Twitter, Email, Motivation Videos and other things not related to my goal of having this site up.
So let’s talk about the voice of perfection. This voice told me I needed to have all my landing page done, it also told me I needed to have the content for my mentoring page, my product and services page.
Now once this voice started talking I started browsing the web looking for quicker solutions to get these other things done, moving me away from my “MRA”.
Finally my voice of Reasoning and Massive Right Action kicked in, this voice said your goal was to have the blog launched in addition to having at least 4 blog posts included.
Once I heard this voice I started working on my SMART goals, I fired up my trusty Rescuetime Application and I put it into focus mode so I would be blocked from any other distracting site. Once that was done, site was launched.
Is it perfect? No … but, building a business is never perfect. Taking Massive Right Action will never be perfect as it is always a work in progress.
So my advice to you to make 2017 The Year Of Massive Right Action is to
- Define Smart Goals – Read my post on Smart Goals
- Find A Tool To Keep You From Being Distracted
- Ask yourself every day what did you do to bring you closer to your goals.
