This year has gone by so fast, it’s boxing day already and in less than a week we’ll be in 2016.
It’s just so scary to think how time goes by so quickly and you don’t seem to be able to get things done fast enough to keep up with time.
We all have to same amount time each day, 24 hours, and a third of that usually is our time in bed. So how do some people manage to get so much done while others like most of us, can’t even get one simple article, say 500 words, written in a day?
What would your answer be for that?
To me, it would boil down to 2 simple things:
- lack of planning
The firs one, lack of planning. One of my earlier post I mentioned about planning and I put down a quote from Winston Churchill, it goes something like this:
“He who fails to plan is planning to fail”
In any type of business (well I hope you’re treating this as a REAL business), planning on the steps of actions is crucial, and it’s no exception for your online business. You should always, always treat your internet marketing business as if you’ve invested tens of thousands of dollars in capital into it. If you think this way, you’ll probably be more focused in putting in the work in order to getting your investment back.
Now let’s talk about procrastinating. Earlier I mentioned how some people can get more tasks done and while others cannot. It’s simply a nature in everyone of us to put things off until later.
You know the phrases that comes out most of us…
“I’ll do this later because…”
“Next week I’ll start…”
I’m sure they’ll be familiar to you, in fact, I’m very familiar with them too!
We all procrastinate, that’s because we’re only human.
But for your internet marketing business, it’s DETRIMENTAL!
This is what I want to you do together with me in 2016…
Every start of the week (mine’s usually a Sunday), write down the tasks you want to do each and every day of that week.
Now I know you might not be able to finish a task in one day…but…at least you’ve done something. Leave what’s unfinished for the next and just continue…that’s all I ask of you for the coming year.
Doesn’t sound too hard to do does it?
Great…now I hope both our new year will be a prosperous one, and we’ll be going to enjoy them with our families and loved ones.
So for now I’d like to update you on how my list building activity is going.
If you look at the screenshot below I have up to 806 subscribers which has cost me approximately 29 cents for each subscriber, 3 of which are buyers.
In the start of 2016 I’m going to find a way to turn these subscribers to buyers by either creating my own products to market to them, or using PLRs which I can brand as my own.
Enough for now.

Until next time, I wish you the very best in 2016!
