I am in the business of people and it is important that my online business consulting not only meets my reader’s expectations but also remains productive and continues to grow. In my crusade to exceed my client’s expectations, I am continually looking for ways to improve myself and my business. Finding ways for me to increase business cash flow and refining my business productivity is essential.
While recently listening to some Brian Tracy CD’s about productivity success secrets, I recognized my application of many of these same principles in my own business. I was curious if my business peers also applied these techniques to increase business cash flow and business productivity. I surveyed a number of business professionals – real people applying productivity skills in their daily business lives – to ask them about their personal methods for increasing business cash flow and business productivity.
Without me even mentioning the Brian Tracy CD’s, the survey takers unknowingly revealed every one of the Brian Tracy CD’s secrets throughout their answers. Though this in itself was intriguing, what I found particularly fascinating was that every one of the businessmen and women surveyed expressed the importance of four particular ways to increase business cash flow using business productivity techniques.
1. Make A Decision! We tend to over-evaluate what is really on the table. Many entrepreneurs will get stuck and not be able to get anywhere because they get caught in analysis paralysis. So, the bottom line is to quickly but skillfully present, evaluate and decide. Apply the KISS method (Keep It Super Simple).
2. Plan Every Day. Some will take this a step farther and recommend planning every day in advance. The common thread with all of the businessmen and women regarding this tip was that they applied a system to their “to do” list. There is a distinction between “urgent” and “important” and within each are varying levels of priority.
3. Eat That Frog. In other words, don’t put off the task that is the most difficult or the most dreaded. Instead, start with that event and get it over with. Once it is out of the way, the rest will seem easy resulting in you getting more done in a shorter amount of time.
4. Be Intensely Action-Oriented. This one goes somewhat hand in hand with number 1. But what is most significant here is to take action, any action. As Nike says, “Just Do It.” It is better to make a mistake and learn from it then to never have tried. Wayne Gretzky (the famous high scoring ice hockey player) was quoted, “you will miss 100% of the shots you never take.” Similarly, Thomas Edison claims to have discovered over 2000 ways that did not produce electricity before finding just the right combination which resulted in successfully creating electricity.
Only you can be accountable for your choices so be sure to educate yourself and learn everything you can to increase the odds of the success of your own business – including how to ensure that you remain proactive to increase business cash flow and business productivity.
