How to Score Your Top Ten Priorities for Better Results!

Score your Top Ten Priorities

Score your Top Ten Priorities

What an eye opening activity for my business and me personally, that have literally awaken me to see that I can, I will and I must do better each day to be successful in achieving my goals. I enjoy reading and finding different ways of challenging myself in growing and becoming a better person as well as a businessman in all of my endeavors and pursuits. I understand that whatever goal is in front of me, I have to deliver consistent results to be successful. Positive results is the name of  the game and how we go about achieving these results is what I will share with you today.

A few weeks ago I came across this challenge that is taking my business to a higher level. This challenge requires me to isolate some key priority items that I have to work and complete in my business in order for the results to be positive as the end result. Farther down in this post I will give you the plan however I want to give you the key to it all, in what I would call the “secret sauce” to determines the winners and losers of the game and that is to keep score of your results.

Yes many times we look at the end result of how much money was made or which goals were accomplished and which goals are still hanging in the balance without ever looking into the process of what made the end result or the score look the way it look. Whether you finish the journey as a winner or loser.

Now how do we keep score

I use this formula and like I alluded to earlier, it is definitely eye opening and I challenge each and everyone of you to add it to your game-plan and see, I mean really see where you are with your priorities, your production on these priorities and how your results will look. You can choose to do the score based on however many days you work during the week. We are entrepreneurs for a reason and we don’t like to conform to a 40 hours a week structure, with the 1 hour lunchbreak and then leave our work at the office over the weekend until we get back on Monday. We like our time freedom and the fact that we determine the price for our services based on the value we put in the hours we work. For this post, let’s look at a 5 day week to keep things simple.

Let’s get started…

1. Write down all of the activities that are Top Priority Items that must get done to move your business toward the goal you set out to achieve.

2. Narrow this list of priorities to a Top Ten list. This Top Ten list is what will determine your day to day workload and it will be the driving force of what it takes to WIN! All of the other work activities you left off of this Top Ten list will either be delegated out to an assistant or may become your things to do after you finish the Top Ten priorities.
(Oh yes, it’s a thinking man’s game and before you go right to implementing this list, you need to dive deep into the determining the items that will actually be considered as the Top Ten Priority items and this can take some time.

3. Now you have everything written down and you are on your way to getting the day started in beast mode and checking items off one by one. You work off of your plan for a few days, checking off priority items on the list, kicking yourself for the items that didn’t get done on a particular day and now a full work week has come to a completion and now it’s time to see our score.

4. At the start of the next week, it’s time to track the previous week and give ourselves a score. For those daily 10 activities if you completed all ten, then your score would be 100% Grade A. If you only completed 6 out of 10 items then you scored 60% and in the schools where I come from, 60% was not a passing grade. You calculate each day’s score and then total the numbers for those 5 days will show you your score and how productive you are when it comes to getting your top priority items completed on a daily basis.

In a perfect world and on a super productive day our goal should be 100% however if you are just getting started with this system, the powers that be, lowered it somewhat for us to strive for a weekly goal of 80-85%. When I first saw this 80-85% as a goal, I was like, what 80%, I can do that because I am Action Jackson and I get my work done on a consistent basis. I’m a Go Getter and I will achieve my goals!

My Results!

Well I am sad to report that my first 5 day score results was an anemic 60% and I thought I was getting things done. I looked at that number 60% for awhile and then focused my attention on what got done and what didn’t get done. This really will change the way you look at your business and make you understand why you are accomplishing your goals or not. You will go to your own business school and learn lessons about you and your business that only keeping score will teach you. I noticed that on the first day, I hit all 10 of my Top Ten Priority items and Wow was I feeling great. But as the week kept progressing and other stuff like new ideas, distractions, making adjustments to some old priorities, etc… start crowding my daily to do’s, the attention to priorities started getting away from me. All it takes is to complete 3 to 4 priority items and leave the other 6 or 7 undone and you will see that it doesn’t take long for your score to drop because again this is done on a daily basis and there is no time to waste.

To keep myself as well as you encourage and inspired to be more successful in your business I challenge you to get started with this scoring challenge right today. Be completely honest with yourself because after all, this is your business, your goals and ultimately your success that you are tracking and you are not doing me or most importantly yourself any favors by fudging the numbers and whether or not you completed your daily priority items. Please share your comments after week 1, I would love to know your score and also how this will ultimately assist you on your way to a more successful last few months of 2015.

The Faces of Leadership!

The Faces of Leadership!

patrick jackson leader

This is me in deep thought regarding a statement below that I read the other day in the Harvard Business Review regarding leadership.

“The Leader must cope with the least capable, the suspicious, the self centered, the ungrateful, the haters, the uninspired and the generally the unhappy person, all while not becoming all of these him/herself.”

I added a couple of more descriptive words to make the quote more meaningful to me however I do hope you get the point. In leadership, you come across many “faces” and personalities that affect the group and its production in both a positive and negative way. Most of the time the negative impact is highlighted more than the positive.

The leader is responsible for the vision, the production and the very people that is charged with the task of getting the mission completed. On a day to day basis, the leader has to continue to feed and insulate himself well enough with positive mind-food to keep from becoming any one of these “negative” persons mentioned in the above quote.

Stay positive and true to your mission, your core values and yourself as the leader, while you are dealing with the many faces of leadership!
Make it HAPPEN!!!

Leaders are Readers

Leaders are Readers

I thought I would take a quick snapshot of a few books I am reading for this 2014 year.

Leaders are Readers!

I have always been a reader from a very early age and when I heard this quote, “Leaders are Readers”, that really inspired me further to read as much as I can. I want to grow as much as I can and become a better leader each day.

Each one of these books here in this photo are truly inspirational, insightful as well as practical. There are a lot of “Gold Nuggets” or should I say “Gold Bars” of Wisdom are in each of these books.

Ok leader, take your pick and get your pad and pen out to take a lot of notes. You heard the phrase, “If you knew better, you would do better”? Well, now you know so pick up a copy of any one of these books below when you get a chance.

Network Marketing GOO-ROOS Will Not Win!

Network Marketing GOO-ROOS Will Not Win!

network marketing goo-roos

My friend, this post is a “must-read” coming from one of my teammates, that is breaking down the network marketing ‘team build’ in real talk terms.

In most programs that are “direct sales” deals and just pretending to play “network marketing” you can tell because they simply design it so that sales and leverage feed the few at the top. The “network marketing goo-roos” will keep boasting and bragging about how bad they are and how they “dominate” and how it’s all about them etc…

Have you ever thought to ask just WHO is being “dominated?”
I know, it’s subtle…
If they are such awesome “predators” who DOMINATE, who is the prey?
Yep, you guessed it… you.
You are the prey.
They call their “deal” a good thing and actually it’s very hurtful to not only the newbies but also the legitimate marketers that operate in integrity.

Here’s what you won’t find in their back offices…

Their teammates getting paid.
Oh, they claim it and say “I wanted to help my team get paid” but read between the lines… who do they consider their “team?”
ONLY the ones who shell out the big bucks. In fact, if you’re not sending over a RIVER of your cash to them, consistently, they tell you flat out, they won’t “work directly with you” and so you have to know that’s a big clue.
Their “team” is just other professional grade producers who already know how to sell.
Their “team” is not the newbie.

Just look at the back office and you can tell…
Cause new people are not getting paid.
You are not getting paid.
It’s not designed to do that.
It’s a “good ole network marketing goo-roos club” and chances are, you were never invited to be on the inside, you were just invited to fund their play time… and their next big traffic campaign… and all the toys they’re buying with your money.
Here’s the inside scoop…
And the charade begins…

They justify it, validate it, and victimize the new guy and say anything and everything to let the new people know that they should be worshipping their gooroo and sending even more money to discover “the real secrets.”

Find a person in a vulnerable state and…
“I have the secrets to your universe, buy my stuff.”
“I have exactly what you want… buy my stuff!”
And after that happens…
“I have secrets you want… buy even more of my stuff. My new stuff is better and more important than last month’s great stuff.”
And after targeting vulnerable people and offering them some secrets, it continues…
“You’re not worthy yet to know the “real” secrets, so you must……”
Yep, you guessed it…

BUY MORE STUFF!

And so it goes on until the new guy just can’t buy more stuff…
Then, they’re simply told to…
“Work on your mindset! You’re not ready. You’re “resisting” and not allowing this knowledge in. It’s your mind and attitude… you’re a weakling… please go away… get away from “poisoning” my team… get outta here… scram…. and work on your weak mind, then come back and…. BUY MORE STUFF!”

It’s a model.
Some say it’s not “right or wrong” it’s just a model.
I say, when it’s KNOWN that, that is happening to good people… it’s sociopathic, not only wrong, it’s disgusting.
Yet, the narcissism continues.
They’re in love with themselves and begin to believe their own BS.
It’s a sales hack.
And it begins to hurt people. A lot of people. And I hate that.
Most times, it gets started as a noble vision and the message is great and attracts people because the energy is so different when it starts and it’s more pure… but things change.
The whole thing morphs as the need to find more money consumes them… and well, it just becomes a totally different animal.

Here’s what to look for and what you will see if a “good thing” begins to change into a hurtful thing…

1. A desperately increasing line of “launches” to sell into the existing member base.
“Churn and burn! How much stuff can we get them to buy before they quit and how fast can we do it?”

2. A disregard for improving the front end things that could help the new person succeed. I promise you that front end funnel doesn’t convert worth dirty socks after a while. That’s why NONE of the “leaders” are using it. ANY of it. They build their own. BIG HINT.
“No need to worry about helping the newbie’s funnel out, they won’t sell anything anyway and our leaders don’t need any help. They already know how to sell the front end themselves. Let’s keep creating ways to get our goo-roos paid so they don’t leave because if our goo-roos are not happy they WILL leave… if our goo-roos leave, we are DONE. Let’s feed the goo-roos.”

3. The “leaders” begin to build their own “Program inside of the program” and their own courses on top of the courses that they claimed was “all you’d need” inside the “mother program.” When the “team system” becomes more important than the program it’s supposed to be selling… that’s a big red flag. Let the gouging of the newbies begin and now you have more costs that are “critical” and only for “the serious people” on the team. Another $100 a month here, and another $47 over there and another $1,500 coaching thing over there…
…and all that additional gouging is OUTSIDE OF and in addition to the actual program you’re trying to learn how to sell.
It’s INSANITY but the newbie buys it up…
…they simply don’t know how to see this.
They’re marketing eyes are closed shut.
So, read on and let’s help you learn how to see with your eyes wide open… here’s more signs as to what you will notice when the game begins to change for the worse, you’ll see…
A more aggressive stance and talk by leaders and a more aloof and arrogant attitude form the top.
When they start talking down to the new people who get fed up and start leaving, you know something’s up.

4. And the biggest red flag and hint of all time is this:
When the ONLY people being celebrated are the same goo-roos and almost NO NEWBIES seem to be able to sell anything to another person in the real world… it gets harder and harder for new guys to sell it because there is growing information being spread by people who got “hip to the con” and left… and this information out there becomes easier to find and proliferates…
….and the only people that damages are the new guys.
That’s the difference with that model.

It’s simply not designed or engineered to be a place that focuses on actually getting results for the new person. It’s a haven for the experienced mailer and producer to FLEECE THEIR FLOCK and that’s what ends up happening.
Hey, look… I wish this was all just my crazy opinion, but it’s not.
Just take a look for yourself and please tell me that THIS is NOT what is actually happening…
…take a good open and honest look and tell me what you see happening.
Don’t shoot the messenger, I’m just shoving a mirror at the game and teaching new people how to truly see with their eyes wide open… because one of my favorite mentors taught me that…

Dead Downlines Don’t Lie!

I prefer a model that actually is designed to help the new person get started quickly, for an affordable start up and where it’s designed to allow the team to work together to actually generate success for the new members WITHOUT a “Churn and Burn” model.

Here’s why; VERY IMPORTANT!!!
1. When you help new members succeed, they get into profit mode.
2. When you stop gouging them again and again each month with a new $1,000 or $500 product “launch” and you allow them to breathe and learn the skills of marketing, they don’t leave.
3. When they don’t quit and leave, your income is stable and consistent.
4. When your income is stable and consistent, you do more to help your new guys get results.
5. When your new teammates are actually seeing results and getting paid, they get excited and their confidence zooms up.
6. When your new teammates are excited and their confidence is up, they don’t need nearly as much goo-roo “training” and they get the word out like crazy.
7. When they get the word out like crazy, others are compelled to take a look.
8. When others take a look, they buy products and others join.
9. When others join, you have duplication.
10. When you have duplication everybody wins.
11. When you have people winning, thousands of others take notice.
And that’s brings us to today…

There is a big reason why our team is growing so fast and why so many new people are coming over in droves from other programs where they were the kindling that fueled the fire of ONLY a few goo-roos at the top.
We’re gaining velocity as people see that what we say is actually happening in the real world.
We invite you to come to our free events, our hangouts, our trainings, our conference calls and our videos and take a serious look at why we’re gaining so much momentum.
