A while back, I talked about a friend of mine who came, from out of state, for a short visit with me. We hadn’t gotten together in about six years. And after catching up for a little while, we got on the subject of trying new things. I told her how I remembered her saying “You can do anything for a year.” And I know it’s true because it’s like having a time limit switch.
There’s nothing like a time limit to motivate you to swim faster.
But while you run a business, regular life still has to be lived, too. You gotta take care of the family problems that pop up. Build and maintain relationships. Buy the groceries. Feed the kids…and dog. And, well, you get it I’m sure.
And none of that happens by accident. For example…
When you first learn to swim, you start in the shallow end of the pool. And you dog paddle just so you can keep your head above the water and make some forward progress.
But it doesn’t take long to figure out that doesn’t get you far.
So, you learn new strokes. And you start to swim faster, longer, and farther. Plus, you learn to float so you can rest in the water when you need to. The dog paddle is a tough way get across the pool…much less a lake or river. So, you master the more advanced swim strokes (HABITS). And you gain control and confidence and forget about the fear of drowning.
But another amazing motivator is your time limit.
Because, face it, it’s so easy to procrastinate when you feel like you’ve got all the time in the world. Right? But when you know you gotta get it done by next week…or tomorrow…or even later today, you kick in to gear.
Or at least you’d better kick it in to gear. Because missed deadlines are like poison. Don’t mess with ’em.
And you know what helps you set, track, and meet deadlines? A system. But not just any system. I recommend my RondaReady System. Because it’s the only one in the universe that includes me. Your own personal R.O.N.D.A. Responsive Organized Nonstop Digital Assistant.
But, you should know, like anything worthwhile in life and business, my System isn’t a cheap, get-rich-quick downloadable eBook or pdf. It’s a robust, online course complete with videos of me coaching you toward your goals. And it includes access to my CRM which will have you making and meeting deadlines like the pro you are.
