create your future

ONE Thing YOU Can Count On In 2017

Hey, I hope 2016 was an AWESOME year for you!

2017 is already shaping up to be a very interesting year…

New president…

New challenges in your business, no doubt…

And new opportunities.

It’s up to you…

I think it was Abraham Lincoln who said: “The best way to predict your future is to create it.”

As an entrepreneur, you do that every day…

You take the risks…

You put yourself on the line…

You pick yourself up and keep going when that punch in the gut knocks you down…

And you bring a LOT of good into the world (at least I hope you do…), with the products and services you deliver….

You are truly AWESOME!

Okay, all saluting aside…

Let’s roll up our sleeves and make 2017 an amazing year…

If you haven’t read the book The ONE Thing, by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan, I highly recommend you get that done ASAP.

My big three takeaways:

Takeaway Numero Uno: The Focusing Question: “What’s the ONE Thing I can do right now in regards to <your next domino, which I’ll explain next> that by doing it, everything else becomes easier or unnecessary?”

Takeaway #2: Domino Theory: No, we’re not going back to the Vietnam War here (if you’re old enough to remember that…). This is a whole different idea. It says that, real leverage in your life happens when you can see each milestone on the way to your ONE Thing as a domino. So, for instance, to get to your 5-year goal, you tip over your 1-year goals, to tip over your 1-year goals you tip over your monthly goals… and so on.

Takeaway #3: To what will you say NO? I think Steve Jobs said it well:

“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.”

So, what will you say no to so you can accomplish your ONE Thing in 2017?

That’s my quick recap of the book, and I think you’ll agree it’s powerful stuff.

Could I get your help with this?

The ONE Thing I’d like to do with this eLetter is make it the best it can be for you in 2017 and beyond.

And to do that I need your help…

Do me… and yourself, and your fellow readers a favor and answer this question:

What’s the ONE thing for your business in 2017 that getting it done makes everything else easier or unnecessary?

Just go here and post your ONE Thing. Share it with the world.

YOUR input will help me deliver more of what you really want here.

Fair enough?

Go here now and post your ONE Thing. It shouldn’t take more than a minute.

I’ll thank you…

Your fellow readers will thank you…

And you can thank yourself

…because by sharing it publicly, it will help you crystallize your thinking, and will get you that much closer to the freedom, stress-free abundance and security you really want in your business, and life.

Do it now.

And let’s make 2017 amazing!
