Success Tip # 5 – is Pick Three Things
I know that might sound like it’s not enough, or for some of you, if you’re being honest, it sounds like it’s too much. The three things that are the most important to you. You need to figure out what are those three most important categories of your life. Find a one major goal for each one of those categories.
So let’s dig in as I go through step 5 of the six steps for a successful quarter.
6 Steps to Successful Strategies for Each Quarter: Episode 12 – Step 5
My name is Blair Critch and I help success driven women keep their overachiever status while reducing stress, increasing energy, without sacrificing time with their family.
For the next three months, remember we’re breaking things up into quarters. So what are the three most important things to you? What is one goal, or maybe more, for each one of those categories?
I like sticking to one major goal for each category for three months straight. Because I can go 90 days all in, laser focused on that goal. My three categories that are the most important to me are God, family and business.
Number One – God; I’m choosing to read in his word daily. I’ve made myself a checklist, where I check off that I have read his word daily, and I’m memorizing one Bible verse a week. I share this with my kids. I’m paying for my kids to go to a Christian school, which is important to me in my heart.
Number Two – Family; I’m focused on having a more intentional marriage and having quality time with my husband, monthly, as well as weekly. I am making sure that we’re spending time together, having meaningful conversations.
Number Three – Business; I’m bringing in $50,000 a month in the first quarter of the year. So that’s my goal. Then I know that if I want to bring in, for example, $50,000 in commissions this month, for the next three months, each month, then I know what I need to be doing daily.
- I know what income producing activities I need to do.
- I know what day the action you do.
- I know what my calendar needs to look like.
Now I’m going 90 days all in, laser focused, to make sure that happens.
For success tip number six, it feels like we should have a general right? Because if you’re talking about what are those six strategies for having a successful quarter, and having a successful business, or a successful life, really in general, right?
We realized that success tip number one was Know Your WHY, digging deep, and really, truly knowing your WHY. Making sure that we know WHY we’re doing all of this, and the true reason behind it, not just the words.
Success tip number two was Get Detailed, getting down to the nitty gritty, super detailed.
Success tip number three was Make a Vision Board, with clear goals. You have a goal sheet. It’s written, and it’s put down on that vision board, right? You have a 70 percent higher chance of achieving your goals, simply by writing them down.
Success tip number four was Track Progress. Writing down what and how things are happening, or not happening. Track the progress. Make that checklist or that spreadsheet.
Now we are on success tip number five, where we are making sure that we Pick Three Things. What are the three most important categories in your life? Pick a strong goal for each one and go 90 days all in.
