Stop being distracted in your Nu Skin business
How we get distracted.
I’ve discovered that the biggest things that derail productivity in my day are those things that
- I know how to do
- I like doing
- I get praise when I do them well
- Others could do
- Take me away from what only I can do
Let’s agree on something right now. There are some things that only you (or I) can do.
We have the skill, experience, voice and access to do the thing that only we can do. But when we get focused on something else – with anything else – we’ve stepped out of the realm of high performance and are now hanging out with a group that could only be called “distracted.”
We’re stealing opportunities
It’s not just that we’re distracted. The truth is that we’re also robbing our downline of opportunities to learn and grow. When we do it all we’re naturally limiting the opportunities that we could have been creating for others to learn and grow. We know it’s not good, but we keep doing it.
So how do we get past it? How do we ensure we’re creating opportunities for our downline (to learn and grow) while also focusing on successfully advancing our Nu Skin business?
Easy. Create a NOT TO DO list.
My NOT TO DO list
I love playing with technology and creating new online tools for our downline. But I shouldn’t be messing with any of those. There’s no need. So until I hear of a need, it’s on my NOT TO DO list.
I could go on with all the things on my NOT TO DO list, but that’s not the point. I think you get the concept. That’s the easy part. The hard part is creating your own list. Because only you know what gets in your way. Only you know what derails you. Only you know what woos you, even if it shouldn’t.
So go get started. Define what you aren’t willing to do, and find others who will do it (even if they take longer).
