Distractions don’t want you minding your business.
But that’s exactly what i want you to do, MIND OUR BUSINESSES.
It’s similar to what our parents always told us but it doesn’t mean that you as an entrepreneur should be oblivious to the world and what’s going on around you. Nah
What I mean by MINDING YOUR OWN BUSINESS is that you should FOCUS on your business.
Focus on the experiments, the growth, the distribution and the overall products. The things that actually separate you from other businesses or from people that say, “I want to run a business like yours one day!”
They say building a business is like running a marathon not a sprint, so you must be productive. You can’t do that spending time watching everyone else build.
To effectively mind your business
1. Measure Everything
How do you stay away from wasting time on working on things that you shouldn’t be working on?
You measure, you start setting metrics to gauge the effectiveness of your hustle.
Identify that one metric that can make a difference right now and focus on it. Once you start getting your groove add another one, then another one. The point is to measure what you work on so you don’t waste time on things that don’t add value.
2. Forget About The Vanity Stuff AKA Likes, Retweets, And People Sliding In Your DMs
With social media really shaping the way we communicate, it’s very easy to get caught up with it. The constant scrolling and consuming of the content online needs to stop if you want success.
It is very easy to get distracted with how many followers or likes you have but it’s even easier to get distracted with what the rest of the world is doing. Those likes won’t get your product built, maintained or help it grow. Your ego might get a boost, but when no one buys your STUFFS, it won’t matter anymore.
While you’re chasing likes, followers and retweets your competition is using social media for what it is; a MARKETING CHANNEL!
Until all those things convert to cash, drop the vanity, and focus on the product!
3. Focus On Your Customers, Not Your Competition
I just want you to remember that while you are wasting time watching your competitor’s moves, they are busy at work testing a new tactic. Don’t play catch up!
Your customer’s feedback will make your product better, focusing on your competition won’t!
The power of being focused is grossly under estimated until everything you worked hard for crumbles. Ask yourself every day, for every task, will this lead to something better for me or my business. Keep it real with yourself; if it takes away from your high level of focus drop it! Then go stand in front of the mirror and thank yourself. You just did what many people won’t, hence giving you an edge. Today, on the Dr Shogo App, i wrote on what i titled knock your assumptions down. If you are an android user, click here to download
