Finding business and life motivation with Jack Canfield The Success Principals

I am pumped about everything I’ve been learning.  I’m currently reading Jack Canfield’s book “The Success Principals”

Some productivity techniques from Jack:

  • Write down five goals or five tasks for each and everyday.
  • Get Accountability Partner who you review your goals and tasks.

Also write down your life goals.  Add to the list as you think of more.  Share what you love and what your find inspiring.

You can buy his 10th anniversary book here and get some bonus content including the first two chapters as a download along with a couple hours of Jack talking and answering questions. The Success Principles Book

Recently I signed up with Michael O’neal’s “Solo Hour’ which is an online mastermind group.  In a group like this you get help with your business questions and you get to network with other people who are also looking to be successful in business.

I also discuss online business ideas like selling an eBook and creating other forms of digital media.  Remember you may not consider yourself an expert but if you know more about a topic than other people then you can teach them.

And I discuss using Instagram for your business, passion or hobby.  I’m using an app on my iPhone named ‘Word SWAG’ to add text to my photos and to get backgrounds for sayings.

I also talk about working on discipline for my business and passions.

Jack also suggested adding a new habit to an existing habit to increase your success.  Example every time you brush your teeth do some push-ups.

Have a great day and make your list to get more done!

Track your time and find some for something new and productive

This episode covers a number of thoughts to help you change your habits and use your time for something productive. I bet you can find time to get ahead.

“The trick in life is not to trick yourself” Dennis Prager

Try something new. Listen to, read or start learning something new that you will look back in a year and be glad you invested your time.

I found myself reading the same websites each and everyday and those websites were not teaching me anything that helps me in any way. Instead if anything it just let me know the bad news each and everyday. A few weeks ago I changed my habit from the old sites to any site or youtube video that I was interested in learning about.

I also talk about a photographer we use who makes her living with her camera. Is photography your hobby and your passion? If so you should and you can make money with your camera.

Do you multitask? I’m writing this post while watching the NFL playoff game. You could be adding a post to your website, researching businesses that you would like to run. On your commute you could be listening to podcasts or even youtube videos. I listen to many youtube videos rather than watch them. Do you listen to music or the radio at work? You can change

What to spend time and money on to grow your business?

What to spend time and money on to grow your business?

We only have so many seconds in each day. Where should you be spending them?

I mention a Tmobile home phone service I have but I’ve not been using as an example of something I can spend some time to cancel. Update I did call to cancel and they gave me the service free for a year. So I’ll have to spend more time in the future to cancel it if I don’t end up using it.

Should you be using an electronic or call center to help you with your calls? may be a good option or an actual call center service like CMS may work well for you especially if you still have a full time job. This ensures someone is answering the calls you can’t answer.

Are you spending a decent amount of your time watching TV which merely passes your free time? I’ve been cable and TV free for over a year and I’m happy with the extra free time. When I’m bored I realize I would have been watching TV but now that isn’t an option so I find other things to do.

We only have so many seconds in a day how can you better use yours to free up more of your time in the future?
