You want to get discovered, so….Each and every day you click on and sort through buttloads of articles, information, ideas, savy blogs, photos with cool quotes on them, ultra cool tech options, another seminar to sign up for, one more downloadable white sheet, a conference that promises to make all the difference, a tweet, facebook stories by the quadrillions, a pinterest pic, culturally cool instagrams, linked in notifications, a google chat, skype messages, entertaining vines, educational TEDS and blah, blah, blah to the infinite power. (If you have a sadistic personality and that wasn’t enough, take a gander here.
The ‘all of it all’ is overwhelming. What do we choose? Do we do it all? Do we pick and choose? What do we pick and choose? What if we don’t choose the right thing? What if the right thing is the next thing and we miss it? Ughhhh. It can be maddening. We find ourselves praying for that 25th hour in the day. Just one more hour that our eyelids will stay open. Have you been there? Are you there?
It’s time to stop, drop and punt.
What ideas, social networks and education needs fit in your plan? When is the last time that you took a look at your plan? Do you even have a plan or are you just running after the next thing that captures your divided attention? The hamster has that action down pat. That wheel keeps going and going and going to nowhere. It’s time to get off that hamster wheel and get down to real business.
Create a plan
With your brain already in overdrive, it would be wise to grab another set of eyes. A management consultant, life coach or business organizer. Someone that can help you sort through the chaos that you’ve innocently, but undeniably created for yourself. It’s time to pinpoint your niche. Laser focusing what it exactly is that you do. If you don’t even know what that is, your potential clients/customers will know that you don’t know. No sale happening there. If you are having a V-8 moment, don’t be too hard on yourself. All of us get caught up in the web. It entangles us and keeps us unorganized in our thoughts and our actions. It’s time to take control and begin to work smarter, instead of harder.
Years ago someone sat me down and commented on my uber-creativity. In the same breath, they commented on the fact that they could see my brain moving from the inside out, non-stop. They warned me that burnout was just around the corner. I needed to learn how to harness that power. Let it work for me, not against me. It can be a monster that seemingly takes over and before you know it, you are bright eyed (from all the coffee) and bushy-tailed (cuz you have no time to buy new razors). I put in practice the wisdom of KISS. Learning how to Keep It Simply Simple. Organization holds power, that’s the first step. Planning is key. This process is never-ending. That is important to know and realize. Dust bunnies procreate when we don’t clean. And yes, I grabbed a Genius. I have my own mentor/business coach in hand as I continue to create and work through my plan.
So What’s Next?!?
Discover yourself. Find out the Who, What, Where, When, Why and How’s of your business. Keep breaking it down. Focus in on the tiniest version. Cut away (store away for later in the process) all of the stuff that is not vital to the Why. Then begin the plan. Eighteen months is a great magic number. It has been stated that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. (I tend to think that it’s much longer, especially if you are comfortable sitting in them.) So with that being said, the first order of business may challenge the sound barrier with all the breaking going on. That’s ok, we are all in the same place. It’s a continual process.
Grab a Genius
Three reasons that it is time to grab a genius.
You are sick and tired of not being effective in your business.
You find that you are always searching for answers, but never finding them.
You want to eliminate the bad smells associated with your current unplan and need help sorting through all the muck. If any of the above describe you, it’s time.
Disclaimer: If one of your favorite past times is watching paint dry, this process is not for you. Action is needed. You will need to spend some of your greens to make it happen. But you will never be sorry. That feeling that you will get when you can see through the fog and view that clear path to walk on is priceless.
