Early this year I was “firing up” about the prospects of 2018 – and, scouring my resources to find a new tactic which might add a gear to my productivity. Fortunately, I connected with @andyfrisella and his MFCEOProject – a series of advice podcasts and postings. Warning: Very explicit.
What resonated so much was his Power of Five concept. I’ll tell you about the impact, but to learn the details you might connect with his content. It happened for me this way.
- List 5 actions to take every day. The same, non-negotiable actions – some personal, business, spiritual, etc. Write them down every single day.
- Determine a Win or Loss every day based on completion of the 5 tasks daily. Write W or L on your action sheet.
- After 21 days of consecutive completing a task it comes off the list. This action is now likely a habit.
- Then, add a new task to the Power 5
Here are the results of this simple system in 16 days. 600% increase in my sales activity (and folks, trust me, I wasn’t sitting on my ass before) and a massive pipeline. Spiritual connection almost every day thru prayer and Scripture. Thought leadership posting up 500%. Increased workouts/physical activity.
And, this is with a “won/loss” record of 12-4.
An incredibly simple and powerful system. I hope you think about a similar launch program in your life, today!
