Went for a walk today.
Something that I try to do everyday as part of my daily routine to keep fit, but also to ponder over my own thoughts and ideas relating to my online business.
Sometimes I listen to podcasts from successful business people to gain perspective on how they became so successful, endeavoring to translate their business processes into my online business, if there’s a correlation.
Now one thing that cropped up recently was that most successful businesses have only a small number of tasks, that if executed consistently, contribute to at least 80% of that businesses success.
Sure there a bunch of other tasks that help in the process, but the majority of the success can be directly attributed to a small number of precise tasks.
Which means …
If you were to find out the main tasks that attributed to the success, and you were to model your business on it, you could also experience the same or similar success.
Now this is not a new concept, in fact most businesses use this concept each and everyday, whether they’re aware of it or not.
They pinch and steal ideas off competitors all the time, until they become the market leaders, and then everyone else pinch and steals ideas off of them.
So while I was walking today, I was listening to a podcast from an extremely successful salesman, and a question was asked, what is the secret of your success?
To which he replied …
Well, I make 25 sales calls a day, 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year.
That’s it – he said.
He went on to say that, you don’t even have to be good at your sales calls, you just have to make them.
So as I thought about what he said, I thought – how does this translate into my online business?
As in … what are the tasks that if I were to do daily, would attritute to 80% of my success, even if I didn’t do them well?
Wanna know what it is?
