Are You Suffering From Gonna Syndrome?
For entrepreneurs, it's a deadly disease ...
Do you suffer from 'Gonna Syndrome'? Yes, you know what I mean: ''I'm gonna do my 90 minutes, I'm gonna do this piece of marketing, I'm gonna write that new brochure, I'm gonna finish that project'' and end up not doing any of these things? And now it's become a habit ...
As business owners and entrepreneurs, we say we're gonna do this and gonna do that but never actually get round to any of it. Don't let Gonna Syndrome stop you!
Well, if that resonates with you, let me tell you some ways to eradicate this dreadful disease that strikes down thousands of business owners each and every day!
I guess you know most of these anyway, but it's always good to revisit them because we humans have a habit of making things far more complicated than they are. We fill our working day by being busy and not focusing or prioritising on the really important things that should be done!
Today's not done until tomorrow's planned - so write a list of tomorrow's important jobs.
Use the list you wrote last night and tick them off when you complete each one.
Use your diary properly and diarise every activity throughout each day by using start and finish times.
If there's more than one of you, get someone to check that you've done the things that you said you would do and by when.
Set unmovable deadlines for everything that you do.
Use a combination of peripheral vision and breathing exercises to generate energy and really focus on getting things done.
Hire a performance coach to ask you the SMART questions you need to answer and to keep you on track in completing the important daily tasks.
Join a business growth mastermind group which consists of 6 - 8 business owners who meet for a whole day once a month and by using the 'Hot Seat' principle explore the solutions to each and every member's business challenges. Having additional brains solving your problems is extremely powerful.
Last but not least 'JFDI' - Just F****** Do It!
Remember this: everything that happens to you is all your own fault, both success or failure! Don't get annoyed at the success you don't get because you didn't do what you needed to do each day to reach your goals.
"If you want to be super successful, use the above remedies for eradicating your 'Gonna Syndrome'. And start today!"
