Is It In Your Control? And Are You Trying?

Is it in your control? Are you trying?

What currently causes you stress?  What in life would you like to do that you haven’t started yet? – whether it’s in your business or your personal life.

Why do you know what you need to do, but you just can’t do it?

Why do you hope, pray, dream for things but never seem to achieve or obtain them?

And finally, What is keeping you awake at night, indigestion boiling up your esophagus, keeping your eyes open, staring at the ceiling?

In this article, I am going to help you clarify your thoughts and prioritize the things which are most important in your life and business.

By doing the little exercise below, you can get more clarity and momentum to move forward & achieve your goals.


Step #1: Write A List Of All The Things You Want To Get Done

I would like you to grab a pen and write down your answers to these questions: 

  • Do you want to lose weight?
  • Do you want to get up early a couple of mornings a week?
  • Do you want to exercise?
  • Do you want to go to bed earlier?
  • Do you want to start studying?
  • Do you want to read more?
  • Do you want more free time?
  • Do you want more time with your family?
  • Do you want more time with your friends?
  • Do you want to go on more holidays?
  • Do you want to write a list of everything you need to do?
  • Do you want to write a Business Plan?
  • Do you want more sales?
  • Do you want to identify your target market?
  • Do you want to improve your systems and process?
  • Do you want to improve the productivity and performance of your staff?


Step #2: Determine What You Can Control

Now that you have your list, we need to work out whether they are in your control or out of your control?

There are a bunch of things on your list which you can’t control. You need to mark them first.


Step #3: Identify Whether You Are Trying or Not Trying

And then we need to identify if you are trying or not trying.  For example, losing weight is in your control.

However, the question then becomes – are you trying or not trying to lose weight.


Step #4: Plot Every Task In The Priority Quadrant Below

Step #5: Find Opportunities & Prioritize Them

Once you have the quadrant of things that you can “Control and Not Trying” this identifies opportunities for you.

These are some of the things which you can focus on and improve.

If you might be thinking: Which of these opportunities should I focus on?

If you aren’t sure, we would like to offer you a free Priority Checklist Quiz that will identify where you could focus First.
