Blog update!

How is everyone doing? Hope you guys had a cheerful day today! So anyway, I just want to make a few updates to readers of this blog. I know that when most of you guys, whether you are following my blog or not, read my blog you are expecting tips on how to start your own business, on-line or off-line.

I know there has been quite a bit of confusion because I’ve talked about topics that are so left-field such as investing, and I know many of you guys are confused because I bring up topics that deal with more philosophical issues such as mindfullness and how to think. Well the truth is that if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you will have to adapt to such mindsets as thinking optimistically, eating right, staying fit by going to your local gym, and surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals. There are more and I’ll get to them eventually.

So what I’ll be talking about from now on are only topics concerning avenues of success in business and this includes mindsets that augment success as well as sales/marketing paradigms as that’s what I do for a living, marketing!

Focusing on what truly matters to you!

 

Just a reminder: If you haven’t read “Living the 80/20 Way” I’d highly suggest reading it right now or whenever you have time in your hands. It is a wonderful book and I can’t begin to tell you how much it has helped me. If you’re finding life to be extremely mundane or are frustrated with the state of your current life then this will surely qualify as a “luxurious read”!

Alright so, I’d like to talk about the act of focus. It seems that approximately three-quarters of adults have some degree of ADD(Attention Deficit Disorder). This means we are not able to focus on a given task at times and most often get side-tracked by extraneous thoughts that may not even matter. All the 80/20 Book talks about is focus, focusing on only your given strengths and doing what you love. Once you know what kind of business you want to start if you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, or what career pathway you want to follow,  you must find an 80/20 destination in getting there, meaning you must pinpoint the 20% of effort that will get you 80% of the results. This allows a person to efficiently focus on what truly matters instead of banging your head on the wall wondering what it is that you want to do in life. It is also an avenue in optimizing your potential!

Focus is one of the greatest assets to acquire for an individual, whether they’re a consultant, teacher, or entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs are swamped with hard work if they are to generate sales and with all of the mental clutter and personal issues going on, it can seem daunting!

 

Are you someone who has trouble focusing on what is important to you? If so, what are some of the techniques you can use that can offset this problem. Some solutions include:

  • Going to the gym on a daily basis
  • Meditative techniques such as yoga
  • Blogging (heheh)
  • Writing your thoughts in a journal/diary
  • Going to church or joining a religious organization
  • Being active in your community
  • Joining a local sports league to keep fit

These are just some ideas. Feel free to expand on these ideas even further by dropping a comment below 🙂
