The Friday Wrap: Take Action

The Friday Wrap: Take Action

Today I am going to take a different approach with the Friday Wrap.

From now on, you will get along with the best articles from last week 1-3 action items that will help you achieve more with your business.

As promised, this is part of my goal; to increase the quality of content on this blog, that is.

This week we are preparing for an amazing 2012. So, do not delay and take action immediately:

  1. Setup goals for 2012 – I know that we are in February now, but if you haven’t outlined your goals for 2012 yet it’s time to do it. If you don’t do it, you will just walk around without a clear focus. Also, break each big goal into small easier achievable chunks and celebrate every time you complete one.
  2. Use a calendar – Google calendar does a good job, but you can use any calendar. Use a calendar to add those goals onto it and stick with them. Feel free to change things around, but get a way of seeing anytime your goals.
  3. Book your time – Book time in your calendar to write an article, a guest post or answer emails. This way, you will set yourself a limit and you will become more productive.

Now, back to the Friday Wrap. Here are the best articles from this week:
