Just being in motion will never get you to your Big. To do that, you need to be sure you're doing the right things, in the right order, for the right reasons.

Enter the Take Action Now System (tm). 

With this five-step system, you'll clarify the activities that are mission-critical to your success. You'll then be walked through a process for creating step-by-step action plans to implement those key activities.

The result? You get off the hamster wheel of motion-without-progress and get on a more direct route to more clients and more money.

Forget about being busy; start getting focused by downloading your no-charge PDF version of the Take Action Now System (tm) today.

Mystery writer Dame Agatha Christie had one of her characters make the following observation:  "Curious things, habits. People themselves never knew they had them."


Ain't it the truth!


The vast majority of us go through our days on mental auto-pilot -- thinking habitual thoughts, reacting to situations with habitual reactions.  If those thoughts and reactions are empowering and geared to propel you forward, you're destined to succeed.  If, on the other hand, they're disempowering and're in a world of hurt.

If you have a sneaking suspicion that your habits could use some upgrading, use the following tools to start a mental make-over.
Tip of the Week
Stay firmly focused on the outcome, not the process.

This is probably one of my biggest challenges.  If I'm not careful, I can get stuck by thinking about everything that needs to be done to get me to a big goal.

I've learned the hard way that, if I keep clearly in mind just how much I'll enjoy the ultimate outcome, it makes it much easier for me to tackle the uncomfortable stuff and keep forging ahead.
A Really Good Resource

It's a classic for a reason.  I'm talking about Stephen Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

If you've read and applied the lessons in this book, you know that everything he talks about has to do with getting your head in the winning game.  He addresses not only tasks but interpersonal relations and self-care, as well.

By developing genuine productive habits, you're essentially training yourself to make it easy to do the right thing.


If you've never read this book, or if it's been a while since you did read it, now would be a good time to spend some time with it. 

How's This for Success?   
Many times it helps a whole lot to get support as you develop a new, productive habit.

Two months ago, I came to an agreement with one of my Mastermind colleagues, Pat Schuler of KickButt Sales Training, to meet virtually once a week to spend two hours writing.  The "assignment" each week might involve writing a blog, web content, or an article for online publication.  Although we schedule the bloc of time in our calendars, that's not really necessary any more; writing together on Tuesdays has become a habit.

The result?  Pat has almost totally revamped the core content of her site, and I'm three weeks out on having written and scheduled my short, bi-weekly blog posts

When you're changing old unproductive habits for new productive ones, having structure and an accountability buddy will dramatically speed up your change process...and your results.

The Bottom Line

So...what's the bottom-line impact of your habits?  Are they your best friends or your worst enemies?

If you're
trying to do it all yourself, like so many entrepreneurs, chances are good that you often feel overwhelmed and scattered and bummed that you're not seeing the results you deserve.  

You might even have some daring fantasies about what it would be like to have a ruthlessly compassionate accountability buddy who would show you how to map out what to do, when to do it, and how...then ensure that you act on those great action plans.

Well, by an amazing coincidence, this is just what I provide for my clients.
If that sounds like something that might keep you from feeling like an insane billiard ball, bouncing from one thing to another, call or e-mail me to set up a let's-see-what-we-see, get-acquainted call. 

Wishing you joy on your journey into Big...
