What Would You Do?

Imagine if you woke up and saw this on the news:

Breaking News: Dune to a hacker attack, accounts like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and all email will be unavailable for the next 7 days.  Now, apart from the shock you may get from this news, how much extra time do you think this will avail to you this week?  No email, forums, blogs, social sites, basically the interwebs for consumption and time wasting is broken.  I wouldn’t be surprised if many people (many millions) would find an extra 20-40+ hours on their plates this week.  Then lots of clarity and peace of mind they get from getting out of the cycle of overwhelm and information overload.  That thought alone, as to how much time you could be wasting online can be a big eye opener especially if you’re not getting the results you’re look for in life right now.

So, here’s my proposal.  Why not do this?  Make it an experiment to go on a Facebook and email consumption sabbatical for the next 7 days.  Then see how much you get accomplished and see how much better you feel about yourself.  At the end of this experiment, I’m not saying you should permanently leave all these things but it can help bring things back into balance.  You’ll find that if you give yourself a set time to check email, catch up on Facebook and read your favorite blogs that you’ll be able to do so in a small window of just 30-45 minutes each day.  That’s a game changer as time is one of your greatest assets.  One you can never get back after each day and hour is gone.  Do you really want to waste this part of your life away hitting the like button and all that other mindless waste?

Here’s an important point before you begin this experiment:  if you free up all this time, possibly 20-40 hours over the next week, if you don’t have something to fill it with, then you’ll likely waste it elsewhere watching TV or you won’t be able to complete the challenge.  So, it’s important to chunk down what it is that you want to accomplish over the next 7 days:

  • What have you not been implementing?
  • What would you like to get done?
  • What marketing focused activities can you focus on?

It could be to create a lead magnet, a bonus offer, write some emails or a sales letter, buy some traffic to send to an offer, whatever it is, get a clear daily plan and stick to it like your life depends on it.  You may be able to find time now for a 20 minute walk or a workout each day.  If you’re already a member of MTTB, you should know what you need to do over the next 7 days so you can make commissions.  You should be all set there.

If you’re still lost and want to know what you need to focus on during these 7 days and beyond to start getting $1k, $3k and $5k commissions like we do then:

Feel free to watch this presentation and use it during your experiment.

Don’t over think things here.  Trust me, you’ll miss nothing important during the next 7 days.  If you must and I know some do need to check email for work reasons then limit it to a short 30-45 minute window each day, ideally mid-afternoon or later in the day.

Best of success to ya, stay focused and let me know how it all goes.
