5 Ways to Weed out Your Business Mind

This blog post was inspired by a post on the Marc and Angel Hack Life Blog.

I love Hack Life blogs because you will find unusual shortcuts that are easy to learn. I find it hard to incorporate a short cut that takes 3 hours to learn and 60 days of practice to be of use to you. I recommend this blog as a regular read for Wright Place TV Viewers because you are busy, smart and always looking for a slight edge.

Weeding out your business mind means, getting rid of some of the projects you are working on. Frankly, they are keeping you from projects that could make you money or otherwise get your closer to your goals.

1. The organizing projects: Treat yourself to something nice. Have SOMEONE ELSE organize things for you so you can focus on making more money

2. Drop some events: Some of the things you are attending will not bring you closer to your customers, future customers or future business partners. They are just busy time to get you out of the office. Volunteering for a non- profit does not fall into this category. However, some of those ?networking? events you have committed to do.

3. Dump the newsletters: Seriously, if you have not read the ezine or printed newsletter, drop yourself from the list. Having a bunch of stuff you never got to or read is a drain on your mind power. At this point I never add a newsletter without dropping one I already get.

4. Limit the time: There are some things I work on and for some reason, never complete or get to work correctly. I work on them for a certain period of time and then I move on. Spending days on a non-essential item can really be a time and mind drain. I also like to time how long it takes me to do certain things so that when I delegate them, I know how long it should take someone else to do it for me. An excellent tool for this is the Action Machine

5. Admit it: Some of the things on your list are no longer a priority. At the time of this post, I am working on my biggest event of the year, the High Tea. This event happens in a few days and nothing else has priority. People who are requesting things have to wait until after the event. When priorities change, some things get dropped by the wayside. It?s fine, which is how it is supposed to be. You cannot keep adding things to your plate without taking others off. Everyone has limited time and not all opportunities can be taken advantage of 100 % of the time.

Give yourself a break!

The Leap: How 3 simple changes can propel your career from Good to Great

Author: Rick Smith

This book starts with the author?s quest to understand how in 18 months he had gone from completely unremarkable to writing a best seller, founding a new company that he eventually sold for more money than he ever dreamed of. He wanted to find people who had achieved extraordinary success without the talents and drive that might have marked them as special from an early age. The book was meant to be a ?Good to Great? manual for individuals. I have read Good to Great, so…we?ll see.

Smith shares how in 2003, his co-written book, The 5 Patterns of Extraordinary Careers took off. The book was very successful and after 3 months of touring his company let him go. He felt like his career had crashed and burned. He was looking for a new job and going to networking meetings. After a while he realized the networking meetings had plenty of people but hardly ever did you see top ranking executives from any companies. He created his own and named it w50. This was almost instant success also. He wanted to learn how this had happened.

Smith has also added lots of stories of how other people did it. This can give you some good ideas and perhaps insight on what creates success. He has a create take on memes however, makes no point of what the reader should do with a meme. Should they get one, make up one, use one? I like the book; I am always interested in how other people go to their success.
This book is an L.A. 7
