Stuck in “the doing” forgetting why the heck you’re DOING it in the first place?

Today's episode is about this thing I'm calling "activity addiction." I'm super-guilty of this, and I know many of my coaching clients fall into this trap as well. This episode is going to show you how to get the heck out of this sneaky trap!

I hear this all the time with my coaching clients — they get caught up in the planning and strategizing and doing all the good business owner time management stuff.

When I see this happen, I ask: WHAT is the goal? What is the RESULT YOU WANT? 

It's the chicken before the egg scenario ... we start all the insignificant things: Instagraming, Facebooking, email marketing ... ALL BEFORE we even have a solid business concept!

What you'll learn in this episode:

  • The ONE question you need to ask to create income-generating actions
  • Why this question removes distraction and tendency to be "BUSY" 
  • How a piece of chocolate creates the same rush of excitement we get from checking off a box on our to-do list
  • You'll learn about the #1 death wish of productivity

Activity for the sake of activity is an addiction and a false sense of security.

Why do you want what you want? 

What’s driving the bus? 

Without focus and clarity we are like the hummingbird. Our wings are fluttering  this way and that compared to a dove soaring effortlessly in the sky.
