It’s not about how much you know. It’s about how much you put into action.
It’s easy to be overwhelmed online.
Voices are pulling you in every direction. Each one is promising some tantalizing tidbit that could be the ‘secret’ that creates millions of dollars in income.
You could study online marketing 24 hours a day…and you still wouldn’t get to all of it.
It’s IMPOSSIBLE to know everything.
Choose a direction and get moving.
Get started instead of trying to get everything perfect.
After working with hundreds of clients, I’ve observed that speed of implementation is one of the greatest factors of online success.
How quickly do you put your ideas into action?
If we were to apply the 80/20 rule again, invest 20% of your time in educating yourself to new methods, strategies, and techniques.
And invest 80% of your time putting it into action.
I haven’t sat with a timer and figured out the perfect split between education and implementation. But those who succeed have a ready, fire, aim philosophy.
They get moving before they have everything lined up…and they make modifications along the way.
They also limit the number of short-term goals they focus on.
We’re not talking about your big vision of what you want to accomplish online in the next year, 3 years, or 10 years.
I’m talking about what you’re focusing on for the next 30 to 90 days.
If you try to run a big product launch, optimize your Adwords account, write 2 separate books, and teach yourself how to podcast all at the same time…you’re setting yourself up for frustration.
Focus on what will help your business grow the fastest right now!
Being pulled in a dozen different directions means you don’t accomplish anything. I just talked with a client about this yesterday. He made of list of ‘should-do’s’ and suggested he needed to be working on all of these, and I immediately pointed to the one whichwas most important right now.
He could move to the next step once he completed the main project.
If you want to accomplish multiple projects at once, start outsourcing. Have someone else put the website together while you’re creating the product. Hire an editor. Pay someone on Fiverr to design the graphics.
The less you do, the more you can make.
Stay focused on the highest and best use of your time. Outsource other projects to the lesser mortals.
Plug-in to others who have similar goals to what you want to accomplish.
That’s one of the benefits of the Monthly Mentor Club which I don’t talk about as often.
Yes, you’ll receive step-by-step systems to grow a profitable online business, but you’ll also plug-in to a community that keeps you motivated and moving forward.
Educate yourself. Implement what you’ve learned. Outsource additional projects. And plug-in to others how motivate you to keep conquering new territory.
