Everything Can’t Be Important

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

I just checked and there are now officially 167 great new ideas/technologies that I should be utilizing “right now” in my business to help it grow and become more profitable.
If I wanted to add another dozen, I could just pick up the latest copy of Inc., Entrepreneur or Fast Company They are filled with “How to” lists that could keep you busy “improving” for years.

The access to great ideas is unlimited and is only going to improve.

That’s the good news.

Unfinished Projects

Unfortunately, there’s another side to this coin. It’s called “great idea overload” and it leads to an office/home full of half-finished projects.

A clear symptom of this disease is a whole bunch of $9.95 hits to your credit card for services (aka – great ideas) that you can no longer remember purchasing.

You probably tell yourself that you are just one “app” away from breaking through to the next level.

You may be that close, but it has nothing to do with one great idea.

Marathon

You are in the middle of a marathon, not a sprint. Your success isn’t built upon half finished “get rich quick” ideas – it’s built upon a powerful vision that guides your everyday tactics.

The clearer the vision, the easier it is to prioritize and say “no” to all of the really great opportunities that will hit your email, Twitter® feed or Facebook® wall throughout the day.

Everything can’t be important.

What do you need to say no to today?
