6 Steps To Freedom

Note: If you are completely satisfied with your life and business, please read no further.

With the end of the first quarter here in a week, I asked myself, how I was coming along on goals I’d set at the start of the year.

In a nutshell, while the copywriting/consulting business continues to grow exponentially, product development has lagged, so that will be a focus for second quarter.

How about you?

Charles “Tremendous” Jones, motivational speaker and humorist said, “You make a life by the people you meet and the books you read.”

I might add, “…and the habits you form”

And, it’s a case of “Tabula Rossa”, Latin for “Clean Slate”, as Mike Vance, former Disney VP put it.  He said “Every day is a clean slate.”

Here’s why this matters:

Business growth comes out of marketing results that come out of implementation which boils down to systems, leadership and personal accountability of the business owner and chief marketer, which dear reader, I’ll guess is you.

Leadership habits –> Implementation –> Marketing Results –> Bottom Line Profits –> Freedom, Lifestyle, Contribution… Your Choice

So this habits thing seems pivotal, wouldn’t you agree?

Here’s an advanced, yet simple drill you can take advantage of to amp up your rate of accomplishment:

  1. At the beginning of any 12 month period (upcoming beginning of second quarter for instance, hint, hint…), write a list of 17 new business or personal habits you’d like to form.
  2. Make the first three relatively easy.  Giving yourself an easy win gives you confidence and excitement to tackle the more challenging new patterns.
  3. Set a date for accomplishment for each one at 21 day intervals.  It takes 21 days of consistent repetition to ingraine a new pattern.
  4. Jot reminders in your calendar on a daily and weekly basis to check progress.
  5. Add milestones for completion of each new habit in your calendar.  To make easy, here are 21 day interval dates starting from April 1:
  6. Get to work on that first habit.

I realize most people won’t go to the trouble.  It’s always the 10% who move to the front of the pack…

Remember what’s at stake here – 21 new enhancements to your life and business in the space of a year.  Who knows what you can achieve?

To make it easier for you, here are the dates at 21 day intervals starting on April 1:

  • April 21
  • May 12
  • June 2
  • June 23
  • July 14
  • August 4
  • August 25
  • September 15
  • October 6
  • October 27
  • November 17
  • December 8
  • December 29
