NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “We all get good ideas at seminars and from books. Implementation not ideas is the key to real success.” – Chet Holmes (Best-selling author of The Ultimate Sales Machine and the former business partner of Charlie Munger)

How do you make sure that you are open on time every day?

  1. Get there early.
    1. Something will always come up so go ahead and plan on something happening.  

Why are people always insisting on being late?

  1. They are bad time managers and we must take them under our wing and show them how to plan and be on time.

ACTION STEPS –

  1. Every single day, look at a day planner. Plan your day previous to it starting.
  2. If you do not have one, buy a day planner that works for you.
  3. Create a daily to do list and prioritize.  

NOTABLE QUOTABLE – “You either pay now or pay later with just about every decision you make about where and how you spend your time.” – Lee Cockerell

Get ready to add her that thrive time show free, toalright, thrive business coach nation, welcome back to the drive time to show on your radio. Thank you. Mr. Colton dixon for the new thrive time show intro started from the bottom now we’re here so hot now chuck. This is this is a concert I want to get into today we’re going to be talking about the eight most common reasons why people don’t achieve success after they know what to do. The doctor said this is like after you know what to do after I know what to do. We we know now we didn’t know what to do, but now we know what to do. Why? Don’t we do it in so I’m going to get into this this first one? This is business diligence, chet, holmes, the best selling author of the ultimate sales machine, and a man who was the partner of charlie munger. A man has no longer among the living, but a man who was the partner of charlie munger, who is warren buffett’s business coach partner. He sayswe all get good ideas and seminars in from books. Implementation. Not ideas is the real key to success, so I’m going to start with this, this dispersed idea. Make it pretty pretty pretty specific listening to listen to our show from all over the world and in one of the things we talked about. A lot is the importance of gathering objective reviews from your ideal unlikely buyers. We talked about that. We also talked about opening your business on time. So, if you say the stores going to be open at 9, make sure you open it on at night and I would tell you probably out of a hundred entrepreneurs. I’ve met the idea of opening their business everyday.

At the time posted on the sign is almost impossible. You would think you would think it’s an insurmountable huge, complicated, difficult task, and if you talk to him at a workshop or a seminar, a lot of looks like one of your tips for opening on time. Every day at 9we are tips for staying motivated to open every day at 9. What are your super moves for? Finding people that are willing to come to work on time every day? How do you do it with you? How do you implement? How do you actually open up everyday on time at dr. Johnston without,? How do you do it get there early since simple, wait, a minute! Wait, a minute you’re saying when you’re saying what you’re saying is:get there early correct as a profound thought and chapel want you to pile on here with i. Want you to I know every day that I am in route to work. Something will try to stop me from getting there on time. There’s like a something there’s, always something there’s always traffic to this morning. As an example, I met john this morning at the riverwalk we had a little powwow this morning. I want to meet him at 4 a.M. Meet him at 4 a.M. You know, and so what I did so I left at like 3:30 cuz? It takes me 15 minutes to get there on the ba expressway from east covey stereo of tulsa I’m driving over there across the river did jenks riverwalk, so I left at 3:30 in the morning to get there at 4 right here. That’s crazy, I get through that! Stoplight at 96th and riverside marshall I get there I’m getting there. Just keep picturing your mind. Is it at the quiktrip right there and they’re all the way?

I am it’s clicking cooking and I noticed the light is red and red ever knows that, like it will stay red for like a business coach week, I hate that light. So I bet that’s why I backed up over the line? Maybe I need to do something and realize this thing’s not going to turn me know a green for green, arrow, you’re, looking for so I back up and then I back up some more money on the road back up, then I go right and I go into the qt parking lot like i, take a different approach, a detour. So now the time it’s like it’s like 3:51 and then that thing turns green, pretty much immediately and I go cross the river. This isn’t it riveting story. So now I go across her going to cross the river I turn on my right, blinker and I turn and now I’m across the river I go through the go through the whole, the labyrinth of the parking and if they try to really cut down on speeding in our parking lot. Striping is a huge issue there at the riverwalk. In the golf cart guy he’s driving there. His job is to keep anyone at 3:30. Me from driving too fast, so he’s pulls alongside he’s paralyzed following me, making sure I’m driving. You know five miles an hour and I go over the speed bump one to 1427 I pull in like at 3:53. How do I had not left at 3:30 I would have actually met john, probably 4:10 or 4:20, but I actually got there. I parked the car. It’s like 3:53, so I like 7 minutes, 7 minutes to go, get in there and meet them at marshall me. This. Is that a profound idea? It’s a profound idea, because you have so much time to be early and then being on time is actually harder than being hurt by you have a very finite amount of time to be on time, but you have that you allow yourself so much room for error. Things going wrong. If you do not leave early and plan to show up on time, like you show up at 1 minutes early, just right on the nick of time or like how early would you say is I show up 30 minutes early, so something will go wrong.

Something will go wrong. Something will impede you so plan on it happening years ago. This would be about 4 or 5 years ago. I used to travel for speaking events all the time and it wasn’t conducive with her 5 kids. So doctor said we would travel a lot. We travel to go to the airport and you know you go if you’re traveling, you know 10-15 times a month, you’re going to san diego you’re speaking in houston you’re speaking in new york, you just you’re speaking everywhere. I would bring a video guy with me, hood, video, edit and every every time not getting every time they say what time does the flight leave bro and I’d say 6 a.M. Flight I said because because here’s the deal this is the first flight is not delayed. Yet the first flight always leaves on time so we’ll get we’ll meet up and I’ll be at the airport at 4 a.M. Okay, I’d like for you to be there by 4:30 a.M. So. We can check in do the deal, get lost four or five times have problems have issues you know get there and then we’ll get on the plane. Probably I want you go through the tsa in the morning and then you go take off your shoes say:what’s your name? What’s going on where’s your id, you know and it’s over like at 5. We can be sitting there waiting for the plane to take off and then I am. How are you using the internet wifi-connected? This is powerful technology. You can get on the wi-fi on your business coach laptop. You could then do whatever work he would do from your home or whatever you want to sleep, i, don’t care, but then that way, you’re not going to be late in this idea seem to escape every video ographer who went with me to the first time and they’re like sprinting it like 552, texting, sprinting, calling all my gosh. Oh my gosh, there’s traffic. Oh my gosh I can’t find my wallet. Why is my wallet? And it’s just me, then all the sudden, the panic of being late, causes them to like make poor decisions pulled over I’m, not exaggerating. We only had maybe two video ographer is ever whoever could grasp the concept of being there on time, the first time so obsessed with getting to the airport last minute and then sprinting around trying to rush you through the tsa acting all frustrated it’s taking forever.

Why do people like to be late all the time what’s going on, so people want to be late? All the time is because they’re infatuated with this thing of new ideas, where hey maybe i, need to try and do something a little bit different this time or hey. I need to do this, but really the diligence of waking up early planning your day. You do you plan your day, clay your to-do list, you’re mad at I’m on any day that you want to be produced by the action steps. This is the part where I love, i, love helping you be there 3 action item that everyone needs to take today. If you want to become a productive person, if you’d want to know not be a productive person that you don’t need to take, no don’t worry about it. Just don’t stress I’ll, just continue being late and people are judging you for being late people, people who are late all the time, people look at you and say idiot:they don’t they just look at you and go get promoted, you’re not going to get a raise and I can’t get the truck put in charge you anything if you are perpetually late. It is not going to go well for you. Every single day look at a day, planner and plan your day previous to starting your business coach neck. Why do you schedule patients at a specific time that this is planned and not just randomly see what happens? I mean? Why do you? Why do you plan your staff meeting? It is specific time. Why do you schedule things into a day, planner or office calendar every day?

He’s bishan see you got to be official people don’t want to wait. They want to be seen in an expeditious way, so every single day look at your day, planner and plan your previous text, the number to chat-if you don’t have a day, planner tell me where to buy a day planner that works for you now. If you have a chiropractic office, I mean how many patients are you going to see in a typical day. 10:20 doctors have any patience you going to see:50, okay and as a consultancy business that does a consulting and coaching marshall typical day. We might see in a 50 coaching clients right, correct calendar have to use it and it elephant in the room we use a program called is in ot in marshall. Why do we use as a note e for elephant the room? You got to use an ot, because we are a membership-based appointment, only company, where, if we didn’t have that, if we’re just saying come on over, come on over, then all of tulsa decided to come on come on come on over we’re open. Where available then we’d be like every other haircuts want it. So we want to create that premium. Experience wear when you walk in your stylist. Is there waiting for you long time, no step number 3. You want to create a daily to-do list and prioritize it. So this is my to-do list today. I’ve got this ready to go hot and fresh. This is my to-do list right, everyday i. Do this trip! You see it every day, every single day, every single day. I only do this. On every day we finished recording today this. What imma do I’m going to upload the executive business coach desks song to the podcast is I’m going to mix down the 6 14-18 edition of the podcast.

Okay, then I’m going to you edit, the show outline for the that we will record on sunday, then I’m, going to finish mixing together the colton dixon new intro started from, the bottom of the thrive time show then I am going to get my oil changed at the $5, will place, I’ll be the first customer there, which means i, don’t have to wait. 3-4 minutes. You know what you know what you have to do. If you want to be the first customer, you have to be early and I’m going to go, buy a baseball jersey with my wife’s name on the back of it, then I’m going to go to the store and get some meat and then I’m going to hobby lobby to buy a 16 by 20 frame, a 24 by 36 frame. This is some exciting stuff. Then I’m going to call ryan wimpy to discuss payouts for tip top k-9. Then it’s not even 10:00 at this point right when you been up since 3:33 I’m just saying is that what I do and plan my day? Is it i? Just i, don’t even understand how people can handle the complexities of life without a to-do list. I got a kind of a mean answering, and the original question we were talking about was:why are people insisting on being late and i? Have I have something to say yes and I’m. Passionate about? If he’s going to send me, is not negative, it’s true. They want to stay up late. They want to take advantage of every minute of sleep. It don’t want to plan out what they have to do, so stop being lazy, get up and just do it right. Nation I encouraged her during the break to check out one of our proud show:sponsors, hood, cpas., comments, hood cpas. If you’re looking for a proactive business coach account to go to hood cpas. Com today during the break i, remember my days back in the drawer room outside try to consume. For the future, that I can assume I can conclude that you have what it takes.
