There are so many things we stay busy doing – the things we do instead of ‘getting the job done’.

Instead of engaging in the activities that will actually make you money, do you spend time reading and writing email, attending trainings, hoping to get that one pearl of wisdom? That one gem that will turn things around and help you achieve the success you really long for? Do you ever find yourself reading and listening to endless accounts of other people’s success?

How do you sort out what part of learning and studying and tweaking and adjusting your systems is productive and when is it time to just get out of your own way and get the job done? You reach a point where you have to accept you don’t need to learn more, you need to DO more.

Training and learning, while incredibly important, can lead us to fool ourselves into thinking we’re working and accomplishing something (well, we probably are, but it is the thing that we need to be accomplishing?). Are you hiding behind the training and the learning and the email and the eBooks and the newsletters and the blogs to avoid the scary task of actually putting yourself out there and building business?

So, how do you figure out what’s important, what’s not – and cut through the clutter to figure out what you’re really committed to and what you’re going to do about it?

One thing that’s helpful is accepting some days your business might scare the crap out of you. Just accepting that can be a relief. It doesn’t give you permission to stop producing, but acknowledging how you feel, allows you to decide to just move past it. You can feel scared, and ignore the emotions, stick to your plan.

When I first realized that I didn’t have to let emotion dictate my accomplishments, it was mind blowing. I usually caved to my emotions. When I acknowledged, but chose to ignore the emotions, I felt terrified, but guess what? I got better at feeling the fear and doing it anyway. I got real results, which encouraged me to keep going. Simple, but it was profound. Don’t let emotions rule your business, rely instead on your planning.

It helps to know everyone else is scared too – the people you admire are just better and more experienced at dealing with their fear and getting the job done in spite of it.

For most of us in business, time is our most precious resource and we squander it way too easily – admit it – you do, I do…

If you want to prove it to yourself, make a schedule and time your activities. You’ll find out how long it really takes to do each business task. You’ll be surprised, you might invest more time thinking about some things than they actually take to do…

I believe we mostly know what we need to do, but we trick ourselves into thinking that the ‘other things’ are productive. After all, learning a new method or technique, or finding out how Terry does it will help me to do it better and be as successful as Terry is.

Yes, but you’ve got to find a way to integrate the learning, training and studying into YOUR life and YOUR business to make it pay off for YOU.
