If you write down a plan and jot down all of your greatest wants and needs, this will help you make decisions more accurately as you take your walk through life. The best thing you could possibly do is make a timeline of which you mark down what you want to have done in 30 days. Then make another mark for 3 months and so on and so on until you’re up to 5 years. It is at this time you will finally start to realize what is important to you and your business. It is at THIS TIME that you will finally start to see the error in your business ways and start to walk the path of a successful business person.
Once your Business Timeline is in place, start to make a list of items you would like to have done by a said date. For instance, at the 1 year mark which should be right after the 9 month mark, write a little note beside it saying something like this: “Have XX amount of total customers and have XX amount of returning customers.” The customers from the first half of that note would hopefully graduate and initially move onto the 2nd part of that list which is being a “Returning Customer.”
This next problem might be the biggest killer in the industry. Do not let your subconscious tell you how far you can go before you have to stop. Do not let your brain fall into the trap of telling yourself that you can’t do something or you can’t do something that much. Limitations should be set by experience, trial and error. They shouldn’t be set by your frightened subconscious. If you let this happen, you will be the last person with any power in your business. Your clients, your employees, even your prospects will have more power than you and the business that you have come to only dream about will drift away just like the smell of Spring in October.
