“Goals can provide direction and even push you forward in the short-term, but eventually a well-designed system will always win. Having a system is what matters. Committing to the process is what makes the difference.”
This is from a great article about recharging your thinking on your business in the New Year.
In our Ewing Organization, we talk a lot about goals. About dreaming, about setting your sights on all that you want, and about how Shaklee can help you get there. You know why? Because we believe that every day, each of us has a fresh start on life, a new chance to change the path we are on. And since it restarts every single day, some times we have to be reminded, refreshed, re-inspired. So every day we all need to either remember our goals from the day before that we’re still working towards, or set new ones and forge ahead. So we love to share those motivating moments with ourselves and with others. We know it helps us to focus on the positive side of constant goal setting.
But you know what we talk about just as much? Having a system, setting your schedule, having not just a plan, but a concrete method. What does your meeting calendar look like? Do you have a to-do list? Do you have an file where you track your progress each day, week, month, etc.? What “Shaklee Office Hours” in your day do you dedicate to certain tasks? It doesn’t matter if you do these things digitally, or old-fashioned with pencil and paper, or a combination of both. Just have a system, be organized, be consistent. And most of all be determined. In Shaklee, you can have a business. And you will “work” at that business. But only with Shaklee, will that business still work for you even when you take some time off from it, or in the hours you’re not working it, even through changes you make to your processes, or for generations to come…
…Signed, the 3rd generation of our family Shaklee business that still makes us money on the actions our grandparents took 50 years ago.
