Are you struggling to put those fabulous ideas you have in your head into action?
You’re not alone.
Everyone has those challenges at one time or another — including me.
That’s the downside of being an entrepreneur. Having so many ideas that often we just get swallowed up by them.
But nothing will happen until we do something.
There’s a major difference between being able to do something and actually doing it. Otherwise we just end up being that person who says, “I could have done that.”
There are three key steps you must take to turn your great ideas into results. Watch this quick three minute video to find out how.
So there you go. Take one project on your idea list and start working on it today.
Ideas are a dime a dozen.
But they won’t help you grow your business until you put them into action.
“I thought of that two years ago,” said my client, a fitness club owner. She was referring to a video that her major competitor had just released.
So what’s the difference between a business person who releases something — a guide, a video, a book — and the business person who who says, “I could have done that!”
There’s a major difference between being able to do something and actually doing it. We all have great ideas — probably more ideas than we could ever put into action in a lifetime.
But, most of us won’t take action for some reason or another.
If you recently said to someone, “Hm, I could have done that,” then it’s time for you to either put that idea to bed or create an action plan.
I have an action plan template that I’ll share with you, but first here are three tips to help you get started.
- Set a deadline. Tasks without a deadline never get done. They just languish on some to do list and collect dust.
- Break the project into small, bite sized pieces. Sometimes we fail to get started just because the task seems so huge. And we get overwhelmed with it. Tearing it apart and turning it into manageable pieces can help us get that task done.
- Do a little bit each day. You don’t have to spend hours upon hours upon hours getting your tasks done. But a small amount of time each day, even 30 minutes a day, can help you reach your goal. You want to make sure you put the time on your calendar, just like you do with a client or customer, and watch out for those shiny objects.
And here’s a tweetable for you:
