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:
- Get your head straight…
- Get your planning straight…
- Get your focus straight and…
- Get your execution straight.
Execution strategy can be a huge barrier to optimizing your performance. You start designing and building and factoring in for the unforeseen obstacles as best you can, and before you know it…
You got nothing done!
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.
You Don’t Focus On The Basics Because…
It hit me while I was reading a blog about the “costs” of happiness.
What struck me was that the author seemed to focus on the costs of something – when the payoffs were clearly so much greater.
And that got me thinking…
Carrying on from my last post: Cure Information Now – Do Less Get More.
If you’re obsessing over your “need to know” before you do anything, it’s likely the symptom of a deeper performance block…
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.
In fact, for a split second in time, you’re not even sure what you were working on in the first place.
Only one thing to do. Get some sleep and get back to more research in the morning. Read More
A lot of entrepreneurs believe their performance struggles stem from “shiny object” syndrome. Getting distracted by the latest, greatest, newest, sweetest, whiz-bangiest whatever-it-is. But did you ever think a “shiny object” could actually be good for your business?
You know what… they actually can!
You just need to make sure of a few things first…
Has a friend ever called and asked you if you wanted to go out for a beer at the end of the week and you responded by saying you’d get back to them and let them know? Even though you knew you had nothing going on Friday. And you were 99.9% sure that nothing was going to come up?
You know what that kind of response is called.
And it lies at the heart of a ton of performance crushing struggles including analysis paralysis… stalling mid-project… a lack of self-confidence… and more.
It’s called indecision.
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!
What holds YOU back?
When I sit to work on one piece, it leads me down the road of another…” -KC
“Unfocused time and project management…” -Juan
“…I would love to have more clarity, to have a sense of knowing where I am going.” -Jean
“…when I don’t clearly understand what I need to do…” -Barbara
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.)
But in this post, I’m also going to do something else. I’m going to share something I believe you NEED.
It’s your life-long quest. A universal goal. The holy grail of happiness.
It’s what everybody on the planet wants just a little more of. (And it’s an entrepreneurs biggest obstacle to incredible performance.)
What am I talking about?
Certainty. Read More
Wow! What a great response to my last post! Your enthusiasm really got me pumped. Thanks to all of you who stepped up and shared a comment.

So… Are you ready? Excited?
Well hold that thought.
Because I just spent the last couple days reading and re-reading all your comments. And we’ve got to get something straight. Before we go any further, I’ve got to put on my “hard-ass” hat, and explain some uncomfortable truths about what you’re getting into…
