Ok, So I’ve been blogging about performance the past few weeks. Specifically targeting what blocks you from performing at your best.
I’ve shared some important solutions about how to overcome the barriers that hold you back.
But more importantly, it’s been my goal in these posts to show you the CAUSES behind some of your obstacles. You can take all the steps you want to fix a bad habit. But unless you actually address the underlying cause the fix will never be permanent.
So after reading all your initial comments at the very beginning, I saw that we needed to take a four-step path to address them. You needed to:

Most aspiring entrepreneurs typically struggle with their execution because they don’t understand the “ULTIMATE SECRET” of powerful execution. And yes, There is an “ultimate secret”.
I’m going to share it with you in this post. And then I’m going to share two simple questions you need to answer to see your performance skyrocket where your execution is concerned. Get more done. Do less work. Earn more cash. That’s the name of the game after all, isn’t it?
So let’s get down to it. Let’s talk about how you execute.
Your eyes are stinging and bloodshot. Your brain has all but gone on strike.
You’ve just spent the last six, eight, maybe even twelve hours researching important data you need for a project. Or maybe you’ve been trying to learn the details of a certain strategy. Or the ins and outs of specific techniques for marketing your next launch.
The only problem is you can hardly remember anything you’ve read. And worse than that, the stuff you can recall seems to have no relation to anything you’re working on.

And we’re going to dissect it in this post. I’m going to show you exactly why you hesitate when you should be taking action. And give you four simple steps that will eliminate indecision for you!

OK. Everyone who shared one of the obstacles above (or the dozens more I didn’t print) is suffering from a pretty common problem. A planning issue. A clarity issue. Specifically clarity about the essential steps you need to take to accomplish your goals.
So in this post I’m going to give you the answers you want. I’m going to show you how to drill down and discover the essential steps you need, to accomplish almost anything in your business. (It’s the same exercise I do with many of my private clients.)
