One of the biggest mistakes a newbie or even a seasoned Internet Marketer does on a daily basis is not have a daily plan of action, a to do and not to do list.There are 2 questions you must ask yourself ?

1.what 20% of sources are causing 80% of my problems ?

2.what 20% of sources are resulting in 80% of your desired outcome and happiness ?

Having a daily plan of action is the number 1 key to success online,also taking massive action 80% of the time to marketing your product or service on a daily basis and not learning 80% of the time and 20% marketing like most do..

Learn to ask yourself this.If there is one thing I could do today to get closer to my goal,  what would it be? and would I feel satisfied with my day ?

Being busy is most often used as a guise for avoiding critically important and uncomfortable tasks and actions.

Do not arrive at work or in front of your computer without a clear list of tasks and priorities all you will do is start reading random emails and send you on a different path to your intended goal and focus for the day.Your goal on a daily basis is to decrease the amount of work you do and increase your revenue.This will set the stage for replacing yourself with automation and then will set you free to start living the life of the lifestyle design new rich.

Being effective vs. Being Efficient

Effectiveness is doing the things that get you closer to your goals. Efficiency is doing a given task (important or not) in the most economical manner possible this does ideally get you closer to your goal of working the 4 hour work week .A good example to this is checking your emails 10-20 times a day this is sabotage to your focus for the day and completely ineffective to your goal in hand.Doing something unimportant does not make it important also a task requiring a lot of time does not also make it important.Now from this moment forward,remember this:What you do is infinitely more important than how you do it.

1.Limit tasks to the important to shorten work time 80-20 rule

2.Shorten work time to limit task to the unimportant  (Parkinson’s law)

The best solution is to use both together .Identify the few critical tasks that contribute most to your income and schedule them with very short and clear deadlines.

ask yourself this:

1. am I being productive or just active?

2. Am I Inventing things to do to avoid the important?
