“The world is full of people who have dreams of playing at Carnegie Hall, of running a marathon, and of owning their own business. The difference between the people who make it across the finish line and everyone else is one simple thing: An Action Plan.” ~John Tesh~
Before the action plan comes into being, you must first enact the Undo List. By utilizing an Undo List and creating an action plan, this can prove to be the most productive start of your year, or your life. Below you will find eight questions to help you eliminate time-consuming activities, and non productive people from your life. A word of caution: you might feel happier, 40 pounds lighter, and have unbelievable energy. Let’s get proactive: you’re worth it.
Before you create an Undo List, you must first go back to your agenda book or calendar and examine how you spend your time. Find out where, when, why, how, and with whom you’re spending your resources (time, money, and energy).
Then ask these questions:
Now comes the fun part! Answer the above questions honestly and quickly. If you get a “no” on any question, then your time, energy, and money are not being well spent. It is now time for the White Out Tape, or the Big Eraser. Simply make the decision to eliminate that task from your business, or personal life. You put it in there, you have the authority to take it out.
You are responsible for building your circle of influence. You can actually recreate, build, and actively seek the circumstances and people that will give you the life you want to live. Once you have completed your Undo List, far are ready to get started on your action plan!
