This is a big pet peeve of mine… and is something I am always trying to improve at.

Distraction.

It eats up your day and limits your income as an entrepreneur.

This may sounds simple, but the following is my best formula for getting $#@& done.

Step #1)

The night before, go through all your notes for your top 3 items to get done the next day (for now, focus on just those 3 things). Look at what needs to be done. The notes you have on the history of it. The research you have done. Things you have read about it. Things you saw online, etc.

Book off 3 hours for tomorrow where you are completely without distraction.

Get completely immersed in the project to be done.

Just before bed, write out this statement…

“Subconscious mind… I need your help finding the easiest path to getting _____ fully completed tomorrow. When I awake, please show me exactly what needs to be done, in what order, and with what resources. I fully expect you to come to me with the answers I need. Thank you.”

Simple… yes.

Silly… no.

There are far too many research studies that support this method that I don’t need to list here.

It works!

At least try it.

Then go to bed.

Step #2)

Wake up. Write down anything top of mind before going off and getting started with your day.

Set aside the next 3 hours – no distractions allowed!

Drink 2 glasses of water.

Go for a 20 or 30 minute walk (gets the blood flowing and the brain working).

When you get back, have something healthy for breakfast – a piece of fruit, a shake, something with some vitamins in it.

WARNING: do not check email until after this is done.

Get yourself a timer, or have a watch nearby.

Then fully immerse yourself in your project for 50 minutes. Do not sway from the course. Do not answer the phone. Do not check emails. Just work on your project for 50 minutes.

Then take a 10 minute break away from your desk (again… no email, phone, or distractions)

Back at the desk and go through this again for another 50 minute block (if you have finished the one project, start another).

10 minute break.

50 minutes again.

Then stop.

You know what?

In those 3 hours, I am willing to bet you got more done than you did in the last 3 days, maybe even 3 weeks.

If you have to… do this 3 times a week offsite at a coffee shop, a book store, even the library.

This simple technique will easily allow you to get a TON of stuff done.

When you are in business for yourself, getting stuff done usually means you can make more money.

Which is the PERFECT reason to take this serious!
