How To Kick Start Your Business And Skyrocket Your Success
By Clifford Mee

This will make some people angry as hell, but it's time to
debunk the myth of 'Time Management' while sharing the real
secret of the super successful. Let's face it, many so
called "business gurus" tell us to 'manage time better' or
to become 'ruthless with time' if we want to achieve their
level of success.

What rubbish!

You cannot manage time itself. It continues along happily
doing its thing, whatever you do. I read countless systems
on 'time management' and the majority take so long to
implement and keep track of, you get even less done than
you did before!

If it's impossible to manage time then manage your actions
instead. This is the key to launching new projects,
completing existing ones and to at least doubling your
current output without having to do any more work.
Self-improvement guru, Tony Robbins, said "Action is
destiny." He's spot on. If you start managing your actions,
the impact on what you get done will amaze you.

*** Your 5 Simple Steps To Action Management ***

(1) Write down a master list of actions you need to do
which directly lead to income generation.

Tip - I suggest having at least 6 items on your daily action
list. Write this up the day before you use it. Depending on
how many of these you complete determines whether you need
to add more items to the list or whether you need to break
the items down into smaller chunks instead.

(2) Set aside between 1 and 5 'Prime Action Hours' every day
where you will do nothing except the most important income
generating activities. Refer to your master list and
immediately cross each item out once it's done.

Tip - During your prime action hours you do NOT: take phone
calls, check your email, break for meetings, chat with
fellow office workers or read the mail. You need to get
current outside distractions to support your new routine.
If you run a home office get agreement from your family to
only interrupt you in an emergency during your prime action

(3) Get Yourself a Timer and set it to 50 or 55 minutes.
You work without distractions for this long during each
prime action hour.

Tip - This gives you more efficiency by making you more
accountable for what you do in each prime action hour.
It also lets you know when to take an important quick break.

(4) Carry a pen and paper or a voice recorder with you
during your breaks between any prime action hours.

Tip - During the breaks you'll find new ideas, thoughts and
strategies will surface in your mind. The brain often makes
new connections as you relax after a very focused session.
Make sure you jot them down to record them. You'll find them
invaluable. Don't neglect to do this, an unrecorded idea is
usually lost forever.

(5) Set yourself a weekly income target. When you reach it,
reward yourself how you like. You don't need to do any more
prime action hours for the rest of the week. Revise your
weekly income target upwards at least every 90 days.

Tip - Having a weekly target gives your prime action hours
a specific goal to achieve. Purpose is the most important
ingredient when it comes to action.

Remember you will need to concentrate on other aspects of
business like meetings, staff interaction, emails and phone
calls etc. In some businesses it's realistic to do a maximum
of five prime action hours each day without impacting too
much on the other necessary parts of the business.

Some people will only manage one prime action hour each day.
That's okay. Over a year this will still amount to an
enormous difference in your income generation. Don't make
the mistake of dismissing or forgetting what you just read.
There's real power in this quick and easy 5 step action
management system.

In fact I urge you to start right now. Get out a piece of
paper and write down your master list for tomorrow. It
doesn't matter if you can only manage one prime action
hour to start with. You can increase the number as you
create more focus for yourself.

Avoid "Bad" Manners While Blogging

- by Jim Edwards

Blogging, the hottest trend in online publishing right now,
is currently spreading like wildfire across the Internet.

A cross between an online journal and a bulletin board,
everyone from rock starts, politicians, business leaders
and your average "Joe" or "Jane" can instantly become a
center of influence online using blogs.

But, as with any social interaction, certain rules apply
(my grandma calls them manners) in order to be viewed as
behaving "properly."

One of the things that gives blogging such strong appeal as
an online publishing method revolves around "comments."

Blogs that allow "comments" enable readers to respond and
elaborate on the information posted by the blog owner.

These comments and the free exchange of information,
opinions, links, and new ideas creates the dynamic and
growing content that makes blogging such a popular online
activity for both publishers and readers.

However, rules and unwritten customs about the proper use
of "comments" on a specific blog are also where most of the
problems and controversy will arise.

Since a successful blog eventually becomes a community of
people (albeit in cyberspace), proper social behavior is
critical to be an effective and accepted member of the

Keep these basic rules in mind when approaching a new blog
that allows commenting by readers so you won't find
yourself on the wrong end of a scolding by people who
operate with a different set of rules than you.

As with any social circle, violating the group's rules and
customs will instantly cause a negative backlash.

** Keep It Relevant **

Stay on topic with the post you're commenting about in a

Nothing will earn you the wrath and disdain of your
fellow posters and the blog owner faster than posting an
off-topic comment.

** Watch What Others Do **

Different blogs operate under different rules. What rates
acceptable in one blog would earn you a verbal thrashing in

Before posting (especially if you have not posted to a
specific blog before), look to see the types and quality of
posts others make regularly.

Are they long or short?

Do they contain a link to the person's website?

Is there a "signature" under their name?

** Be Polite **

It's fine to disagree with people when making a comment,
whether it's the blog's author or a comment made by another

It is not, however, acceptable to launch a personal attack
on anyone or make nasty comments in someone else's blog.

If you feel the need to do so, do it in your own blog.

It's the same principle of you can say whatever you want in
your own house, but when you're in someone else's house,
you act right (and better than you do at home).

** You Can't Respond To Everyone **

If you operate a blog and someone asks a question, try to
respond, but both sides should understand that you can't
respond 100% of the time.

We all get busy and a blog, unless it maintains a paid
membership, is often supported as a labor of love.
