Want to Get There Fast?

Where ever you’re going, in your career, on vacation, etc., you probably want to get there quickly. Sure there are some people who like to enjoy the long, drawn out journey, but if you’re like I am, you want to BE there already. Slow travelers, get out of the way!

The challenge to getting where you’re going is that slow travelers and obstacles are everywhere. Sometimes it can feel like you’re stuck in a time warp, like in that movie “Clock Stoppers.” The good news is that there are steps you can take to get over, around and past all that. The additional good news is that most people are not willing to take these steps, so when you do, the road is all the more wide open in front of you.

Procrastination is a very big challenge for many people. The only known antidote is action. And if you want to move really fast, MASSIVE action. That means doing lots of things at one time. Not necessarily in the same minute, but in conjunction and coordination.

If you want more clients, you have to use multiple marketing techniques – post cards, online or offline newsletters, public relations, search engine optimization, online marketing, social media, seminars, client appreciation, etc – all at once. Throw as much out there to reach your audience as you can. (Of course you’re not throwing blindly, you have to target the right market with the right message or else you might as well just send all your money to me and I’ll happily spend it for you.)

The slow travelers are going to do one thing at a time, see if it works and then decide what to do next. If you want to move fast, you do it all together and make adjustments as you go.  As many wise mentors have said, “you don’t have to get it perfect, you just have to get it going.”
