3 Easy Ways To Get Focused

At the beginning of every year, it is quite common to set goals, however the key to reaching your goals is this: You Must make a decision to be Focused! In fact, I believe that you must keep your goals before you.

At my recent Child Care Business Owner Teleseminar, My first Business makeover tip was to “Get Focused“, because I believe that a Distracted Business Owner is all over the place and very unproductive. Moreover, if you want to have a successful business, you must eliminate distractions and get productive!

For example, to keep me focused on the number of spaces that I intend to fill in my Child Care center,  I wrote the numbers down on a piece of construction paper and posted the paper on the wall in my office. (check it out)

As always, I practice what I preach and I have been very focused on my goals. I have one main goal for this Business year and that is to Expand my marketing.

My goal is to market my business to a new audience of parents, so I invested in some advertising on a very popular local news channel.

That investment has taken my marketing to another level, including

Also, My center now has a higher ranking on Google.  I love it! Furthermore, I love the awesome banner ads that came along with my marketing package, because get to also used the banners on my social media pages.

Are you ready to see your dreams and goals manifest? Well, focus is the key to seeing your dreams manifest: Here are 3 easy ways to get Focused:

  1. Plan your day by creating a Priority list. The night before you start your day, use a note pad to write down your top 5 task of the day and do not add anything else to the list until you have completed those task.  You can also use a note pad on your cell phone to store priority list. It is vital that you practice planning how you will spend your time daily. You will feel more organized and more focused. Successful people are planners! * Be sure enrollment building is apart of your daily task
  2. Plan to Keep your office space, center or home organized. Having  a well-organized environment  will help you to feel clear in your mind and feel more organized as you work in that space. It’s difficult to focus in a clutter environment.
  3. Delegate more –So that you can do more of what brings you a higher payoff.  Last year, I delegated party planning to my parents and the parties have been amazing ever since I decided to delegate that task. Also, I recently decided to delegate more duties to my staff and I must say I feel more focused and I empowered my team at the same time. Because of my decision to delegate more, I no longer do bulletin boards, classroom observations, book orders or plan parties. Now my focus is on Business growth, coaching and writing.

Here is something to think about? What do you need to do differently this business year, in order to see different results? What are your goals? I would love to hear from you; Leave your comment below.

Creating New Habits For a Successful Year!

good habits

Successful people have Successful Habits.~Jack Canfield

I am reading a book by Jack Canfied titled: The Power of Focus. The cover of the book caught my attention because I know that focused people are successful people.

So with that in mind, if you want to have a successful year in the business of childcare, you must get focused and develop good habits that lead to you having a Successful year.

In the book The Power of focus, Mr. Canfield wrote: “If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always got!

Do you want the same results this year that you got last year?

If not, It’s time to review your habits and develop new ones. I recently made a list of my bad and good habits and I discovered that I had 12 bad habits!

I know that’s bad, however, my good habits out weighed my bad ones and I was proud of that.

Today I want to challenge you to make a list of bad habits that produced bad results in 2012 and work on changing those habits this year.

My husband bought me a stack of 3 x 5 cards and I will  use those cards to help me to stay focused on working on my new habits. For example: This week, I will write the following on a 3 x 5 card:

My Bad Habit (s)

” You can’t control every situation so , do not allow others to cause you to get upset.”

That’s my focus for my first week of business in 2013 and yes, I have allowed others to cause me to get upset easily and I must learn to let go in order to go up!

My Good Habit

One of my good habits has been my consistency in my weekly routine and in planning my day. I believe the results of being focused has led to me getting much accomplished and having very productive business days.

What bad habit do you have that needs to change? Leave your comment below and let’s get rid of bad habits together!

Good Choices= Good Results

Bad Choices= Bad Results

To a Successful Year of Business,
