Questions to ask yourself to drive success. You know, we are now 1 month into the new year, into your goals, into your dreams, into your plans. 1/12th of the way. And what I like to do is I like to check in, make sure I am going the right direction and course-correct.
So, I’d like to run you through the questions that I ask myself that help keep me accountable, drive me toward success, and keep me going in the right direction.
First and foremost, it’s, “What have I learned?” You know, what have I learned so far in the month that has worked, that has not worked? What am I doing that’s right, and what am I doing that I’m not really getting results from? See, so far to date, the results I’ve gotten are a direct reflection on the actions I’ve taken, or the actions that I haven’t taken. And for that reason, it’s really important for me to check in to make sure that I am learning so that I am going IN the right direction. I’ll even go as far back as the previous year to check in to see what I’ve learned that worked and didn’t work. I’ll get into that a little bit more from the questions that I ask in a little bit.
The second question that I like to ask is, “How’s my marketing doing?” What adjustments do I get to make, do I need to make? For some of you, you might be doing paid advertising. For some of you, you might be doing organic marketing. For some of you, you may be networking, you may be tapping into referral based marketing. And for others, you might not really be marketing. You just might be continually selling, and although the two work hand in hand, they’re not synonymous. You must market to sell.
