12:45Concentrate on what's important... part1
This is only my second letter in seven or eight weeks. Sorry about that, but at first I had no Internet connection when things went wrong with my satellite service (I'm now on wireless broadband)
and then I developed a quite serious illness which I'm slowly getting over.
If you want to, you can read more on my forum I reckon you should go there anyway, it's a great community.
Incidentally the forum posts are being indexed by Google, which makes it a good place to get links to your websites - as long as you've got something useful/interesting to say that is
Ok, I'll keep this relatively short because I'm still not feeling too good. But I hope that normal "service" has now resumed.
1. Concentrate on what's important...
First of all, it looks like I'm missed seeing a lot of new products since I've been offline.
When I visited my forum I saw a number of programs/software being talked about that I'd never even heard of.
And, do you know what? I didn't really care that I'd missed the products being announced.
There's probably nothing wrong with them. They're most likely useful. They're probably worth investigating.
But... remember this.
It's IMPORTANT to not get distracted with new things all the time. You could spend all your limited web time learning how to use
new tools, when really you should be focusing on improving your sites and your skills and your own business.
I remember David Garfinkel and Mark Joyner saying to me in Vegas that I should focus on what I'm good at (in my case writing).
And that's what you should be doing too.
Play to your strengths.
Work out what you're good at/what your main interests are and give them most of your attention and time.
Don't get sidetracked by everything new that comes along.
Write down your "online business" plan, even if it's only on one piece of paper. And work out the steps you need to take to achieve success with it. Doing this will help you focus on what matters, and it will clear your head so that you know where you should be spending your time.
Once you've mapped out your action steps you need to follow them. Don't make a plan and then not stick to it. Don't let anyone or
anything put you off. Go for it.
Don't sign up for every crappy new scheme that comes along. Don't buy every new piece of software or every ebook.
Do what works for YOU and use the tools that works for YOU.
And just go for it.
2. One of the smartest brains around...
I'm not sure if you've heard of him, but James Maduk is one of the smartest business brains around. He's been working online since 1995, writes monthly articles for Entrepreneur Magazine, and he's an expert at online selling.
Plus he's got more products on the market than anyone I know, even beating the prolific Marlon Sanders.
So why he's not amazingly well known in this field I'll never know.
I'm a big fan, especially of his member only site
If you'd like an introduction to his style and knowledge have a look at one of his free weekly webcasts, where he uses "internet whiteboard" technology to get his messages across.
And when you've finished watching and listening you might fancy signing up for his affiliate program which is looks like turning into one of the best around.
