Don't Mistake Activity For Achievement

by: Jeff Schuman
Copyright 2004 Jeff Schuman

I remember watching an NBA Basketball Game on t.v one
night. The Miami Heat were playing the New Orleans Hornets.
Miami was all over them yet when you looked at the score
New Orleans kept pulling ahead.

Bill Walton made the comment "Don't mistake activity for
achievement." I'll always remember that. Just because Miami
was playing hard didn't mean they were playing smart.

This can apply to our everyday lives and more directly to
our internet marketing careers. As we all work hard to make
money online and make money at home you should ask yourself
this question everyday, "Is what I'm doing right now going
to help me make move my business forward?"

I am as guilty of this as anyone. I check my email over and
over clicking on the send/recieve button looking for new
messages that say something like "Congratulations You Have
Made Another Sale."

It is so easy to constantly log into a program and check my
stats over and over. What's the point? If they do change it
isn't enough to even merit the time it takes to do it over
and over.

How about this one. Reading posts in forums until your eyes
are blurry. That's o.k if you are involved and making some
posts as well. You might as well get your link out there
and posting is a great way to learn something as well as do
that. But you have to post once in awhile too.

Here's the key to getting yourself past the activity mode
and into the achievement mode.

Write down 5 specific things you want to accomplish
everyday to help you make money on the internet. Here is an
example of this.

1. Make 5 new posts in forums
2. Trade links with 5 quality websites
3. Submit my article to 5 article websites
4. Place my ad in 5 free classified sites
5. Call 5 of my home business prospects

Now what is the key to these 5 things on my list? Well for
starters they are written down. Next it is an advertising
and marketing driven list.

If you aren't spending 80-90% of your time on advertising
and marketing your home business then you have no right to
complain when you aren't making any money. It is that
simple.

You have to write down action items for the day and the
majority of those action items have to be doing something
to advertise and market your business.

Every one of us has different amounts of time we can spend
everyday working to make money online. It isn't how much
time you spend, but how you spend it that will determine
your long term success.
