I have the above statement printed on a piece of paper and placed on one of the walls in my office.
It’s in front of me every day.
I can’t escape it. And that’s a good thing.
My week is usually quite hectic. I could take it easier but I still push myself each and every day to build the businesses I’m involved in.
I’ve written on the Consultants Build Syndrome, a danger many consultants face throughout their careers. Especially in the early stages…
I keep this along with other reminders and inspirational quotes that help me stay focused close by at all times.
This statement and the key question at the bottom of it “Does it help make a sale?” is critical to my success. And it’s critical to yours too.
My week is usually quite hectic. I could take it easier but I still push myself each and every day to build the businesses I’m involved in. That’s my style and for now I can’t really imagine it any other way.
And this question keeps me focused. If I’m considering starting a new project, or spending 30 minutes ‘researching’ something I’ll often find myself looking over at this question.
If the answer is “yes, it will help me make a sale and generate profits for my company” then I’ll move forward. If the answer is “no” then I’ll stop or consider how it might lead to a sale.
I encourage you to print and place key questions and statements around your office and look to them throughout the day to keep you on track.
And yes, always ask yourself this question, “Does it help make a sale?”
PS. Do you have any statements like this or quotes that you look to on a regular basis? Let me know in the comments below.
