So much has been happening recently in our world, in our homes, in our businesses we feel like we are in total chaos. With all the new eBay changes, we can get overwhelmed by all the numbers, new rules, glitches-whoa! Let’s take a step back, take a deep breath and figure out where we are and where we are going.
C=Clutter: We have had lots of discussions about our work areas and the clutter and how to re-organize to make our spaces more efficient. Right now our minds are cluttered with so much new information and changes and our feelings about all of it, we are not functioning at our top abilities. It is time to clean out those feelings and focus on the positive aspects of our businesses to get us on the right track again.
H=How: With all the new information we are having to learn and our new class learning how to TUNE-UPP our stores, how do we find time to get everything done? The most important piece for me is to know I can’t do it all at once; I have to divide it up into smaller “bites” and stick with a plan till I have it under control. Are you making your “ta da” lists? Are you controlling those distractions? Are you consistent in your listings-even if it is only 1-2 per day? I find at least an hour daily to clean out an area/drawer/closet by making a keep pile, get rid of/give away pile and toss pile. It is very motivating. The get rid of pile is particularly motivating for me because I know I can take it to Savers thrift store and donate and get a percentage off on my shopping, and that’s the fun reward for all the hard work. Don’t forget to nourish and hydrate the body and take frequent breaks to stretch.
A=Attitude and Action: Having a positive attitude and taking positive actions is very important to your success. Focus on what is positive about your business and what you can do to make it better.
O=Organize: Organize your brain, your work areas and your tasks to keep you on track and focused.
S=Schedule: Schedule your days and turn your chaos into sales. If you have a list and follow a schedule-and this will look different for all of us-and do this consistently, your SALES will follow.
