There are three changes I want you to make in your every day, day-to-day routine. Get an accountability partner, document your tasks, and finish what you start.
An accountability partner is really easy. Choose that tasks you are going to be completing today and send that list to someone you know. It can be a business partner, but it doesn’t have to be. Just email them your list of tasks at the beginning of the day and contact them at the end of the day telling them what you did and did not finish. Just the act of having someone report to you makes you alot more productive whether or not they reply, read, or even know you are sending them these messages. It is just that there is the chance that they could be looking at your tasks that makes it sure that you complete them.
By doing this, you automatically document what tasks you finish. If you notice that you are performing useless tasks – like updating your twitter background, or spell-checking your blog, or installing a new WordPress theme, then you can tell that you need to focus on things that get you more sales and subscribers. Document your tasks so you know what things you should stop repeating, and what new tasks you should start doing.
It is not enough to just start some new tasks, you need to finish what you start. That means if you start on a new report, then finish it. Even if it is half done, just take what you have already and put it out on the market as is. Don’t make your projects too big, and don’t promise too much in your sales letters if you know you can’t deliver. Make a simple product, price it at a low price, and as you add to it – as you increase what is in that product, then you can increase the price.
You don’t have to promise lots of things to your blog readers or subscribers. If you want to do something nice for them, just make it a pleasant surprise.
That is how you can get more out of every single day. Have an accountability partner, document your tasks, and finish everything you start.
