Identifying and completing your high value activities is a critical test to achieving your goals.
The first step is to write out your affirmative goals in an “I am” or “I (active verb)” format. Examples of goals include, “I earn $200,000 in (year)” and “I am divinely healthy.”
I often refer to high value activities as HVAs and income producing activities as IPAs. These activities are critical to your success.
Successful entrepreneurs and advisors spend the majority of their time completing high value activities and income producing activities. They delegate LVAs (low value activities) and eliminate NVAs (non-value activities).
Successful people focus on HVAs in all areas of their life, not just money. Examples include family, spiritual, health, personal, career, relationships, community, etc. They set goals and then identify and complete HVAs that are critical to the achievement of their goals. Successful entrepreneurs and advisors have laser focus completing these important activities. They do everything within their power to accomplish the HVAs and IPAs. “Excuse” is not a word in their vocabulary. Mastering this secret requires commitment and focus and an understanding that a lot of success is boring and mundane. It is easy to think success is being in the limelight or spending your millions but the majority of success if found in the activities you complete when noone is watching you.
Let’s review the process.
For each affirmative goal, identify one or two HVAs and IPAs that you need to complete consistently to achieve your goal.
I earn $200,000 in (year) with ease.
I make 25 warm calls each morning from 9-11 AM.
I speak to one group in my niche market each month.
I am divinely healthy.
I drink my green protein shake each morning.
I exercise each day from 6-7 AM.
The result of setting affirmative goals and consistently completing HVAs is a profitable business, amazing life, and ultimately financial freedom.
