Network Marketing SuccessSometimes success – presumably network marketing success in mine and your cases– comes not by how much we’ve done, but more importantly by how much of the right things that we’ve done.

Busyness is a very relative term when it comes to success. When checking in with downline members on my team, very often I find that those who seem to be the busiest are the one’s who are struggling the most.

On the flip side there are those who seem to do half the work but succeed drastically. So what’s the difference? The difference is simply what those successful are being busy at. The activities that they’re performing are the essential activities, and they’ve basically cut out all the rest that weren’t.

Something You Should Know About for Reaching Network Marketing Success

I read a great article not long ago that was from way back in 2003 by a great business mind named Jim Collins. Jim Collins has coined a term that YOU need to know about, and start taking part in.

It’s what Mr. Collins calls the “Stop Doing List” and it’s extremely powerful.

Incidentally, he also talks about it in his best-selling book “Good to Great”.

In the book he states that “one of the commonalities of the companies who were able to propel themselves from being just good to being great is that they all looked at what they were currently doing that they needed to Stop Doing.”

The idea is that most of know of and use that old organizational tool “The To-Do List”. You might rely on that list, and use it religiously, but still not be getting anywhere near the network marketing success that you want to be.

So then the question that you have to ask yourself – and what Mr. Collins suggests – is what should you STOP doing that’s actually not worth wasting your time on.

Here’s something that you have to think about. Time is a precious and finite luxury that we have in life. We must learn to use that time as wisely as possible to get as much out of it as we can and make it worth every minute (actually second). So here are 3 questions that Jim Collins suggests that you ask yourself…

1) What are you deeply passionate about?
2) What are you are genetically encoded for — what activities do you feel just “made to do”?
3) What makes economic sense — what can you make a living at?

Now number three would be used in two different ways really when you’re striving for network marketing success.

The first part (before the dash) would be used for your everyday activities. Basically what is making you money? And for your overall goals, then you’d want to reassess each year or quarter, and figure out if you’re doing the right thing overall for creating your living. If that third part meshes with number one and number two then you’ve found a great life before you.

You’ll see that your “Stop Doing List” will get you closer to network marketing success, and usually that comes with more free time since you’re cutting out so much unproductive time.
