November Push

November 20, 2019

November seems to be a tricky month.

Your year isn’t over.  You’ve still got about six weeks to accelerate to your 2019 goal.

But November often feels like the year is done.  Thanksgiving; followed by shopping; followed by Chanukah, Christmas and Kwanza; followed by Boxing Day; and quickly followed by returning gifts.

All your time seems to be allocated to the max.

However, this one little thing can enable you to reach out to close a few more sales without adding more time to your crazy, filled calendar.

Eliminate all the office housework you accumulate!

It’s keeping you poor!!

A recent study found volunteering, saying “yes” to thankless stuff, is a “woman thing.”  Women volunteer for unrewarding tasks and are asked to take them on more than men.

And here’s the kicker…you likely own the business.  You’re the boss!!!  And you’re still the one volunteering and being asked to take on something.

Office housework = non-revenue-generating work

You’re taking on low risk and low reward tasks, and the odds are superior you’re about to do it again.  Like even today.

We know saying “no” can be difficult.

Yet here’s one thing that’s not hard:  not offering in the first place.

Have a look at your thinking keeping you poor.  How much office housework rests on your “To Do List?”

Identify just one thing.

Okay, identify three things.

Then take that time you’re going to get back and allocate it to reaching out to that prospect who’s “this close” to saying yes.

Same amount of time in your business.  With some junk off your plate.  Replaced by revenue-producing work.

Now that’s what I call a great exchange!

Go forth and do great things,
