Less Talking, More Doing

You are probably sucked in everyday with so many things to do. Between your email, meetings, RSS feeds, and social networks you can get lost and even waste a lot of time. You might feel occupied, pulled in hundreds of directions, but reality is that you aren't getting anywhere or getting anything done. No steps forwards  are done for yourself, your team and/or your business.

The way to play this is to have a plan for every day, where you set priorities and stay focused on the things you planed are important to get done that day. You have to be disciplined and focused to get the priorities done and dismiss any distraction that will take you away of what you are doing (even your internal thoughts.

I recommend to make the following 5 “things to do” part of your daily plan. Progressively they will become part of your routine, and you will improve yourself and the success in achieving goals will come along:

Learn
folderblocksTry to learn something new everyday. Doesn't matter how or what, it can be from other people, from a book, a magazine, a podcast, live show or seminar, online, webinar, or even a dictionary. It won't take probably more than 15 minutes a day and you will be learning 365 (sometimes 366) new things in a year investing only 2 weeks of work sometimes less. However you do it, spend time everyday making yourself better and smarter.

Build
Just create something, it doesn't have to be a new piece of art (unless that's what you want). Just maybe something new that will bring more people to you and help you make more money. You don't have to be a software programmer, a manufacturer or an architect to build something. You can write, you can blog, you can take pictures of the products you sell, or even put together the cradle for the new baby. No matter your role, the more you build, the more things that will promote your targets and objectives in your life.

Network
Another way of saying socialize or partner. This one could be combined with the “Learn” objective above. A big part of meeting people is what you can learn from them in so many ways. Do this in a way that you can meet new people every day, this can be accomplished online and offline. Try to provide value to them in the process or balance and merge your talents and expertise to make it worth it.

Sell
Selling doesn't always require the exchange of money. Sell your expertise, your ideas, your abilities, your product or service. Need founding for your new project? Sell your idea to an investor. Need an approval for that idea to make your office be more productive? Sell it to your supervisor. Remember not to overprice or sell short yourself.

Do
Checking your email every 10 minutes, doesn't count. Answering all your calls, doesn't count. Set up 2 sets of hours a day where you are going to just DO something and not answer any calls or read any email that come through. Also setting up meeting is not a success, if something gets accomplished after the meeting, then you can call it that way. Your doings have to have real, direct and significant impact on your business, your customers, your personal and professional goals and ambitions. You have to define those ambitions and start more doing and less talking.

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first
    comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring
    blog blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do
    you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers? I'd really appreciate
    it.

    excellent submit, very informative. I ponder why the opposite experts of this sector do not understand this.
    You should continue your writing. I'm sure, you've a great readers' base already!

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're using?
    I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having
    a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs
    and I'm looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I
    ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

    I have been browsing online greater than three hours these
    days, but I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    It is lovely price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content
    material as you did, the internet will probably
    be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Having read this I believed it was extremely enlightening.
    I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this content together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a lot of time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worth it!
