Five Lists of Five Things To Do In The Next Five Days





Here’s a quick warm-up, a quick taster, before I do my “Ten Things To Do In The Next 30 Days” presentation at the Opening Doors Closing Sales event on 18th September.

Read the following list and commit to follow through on just five of the following ideas in the next five days. The list is pretty gentle; the tough bit is actually making the decisions, taking action and delivering on your commitments.


1) Talk to at least five percent more existing/past clients every day
2) Talk to at least five per cent more potential clients every day
3) Find five ways to improve your product/service
4) Find five ways to get more out of your staff
5) Find five ways to get more profit out of your business


6) Find five ways to get more sales
7) Find five ways to improve understanding of how sales and marketing works
8) Find five ways to improve operational efficiency and consistency
9) Find five ways to spread the work load and not be so dependent on you
10) Find five ways to make money get used more effectively


11) Find five ways to improve financial planning
12) Find five ways to spend more time "on" and less time "in" the business
13) Find five ways to communicate the vision/purpose to the team
14) Find five tasks to finish or dump that have been hanging around
15) Decide five decisions you want to make


16) Focus on five ways to enjoy your social/private life even more
17) Find five ways to maximise your time
18) Find five ways to laugh more
19) Find five ways to congratulate yourself on your successes
20) Find five ways to spend a little more time thinking and a little less time doing, but also…


21) Find five ways to be a bit more spontaneous
22) Find five new connections you want to make
23) Find five big steps you want to make
24) Agree five things you are going to do in the next five hours
25) Agree five of the above list that you are going to do in the next five days!

To be honest, this list is way too soft… too much choice… too much wriggle room for you… That’s why I created the “Ten Things To Do In The Next 30 Days” presentation for the Opening Doors Closing Sales event. You’ll find it just a little more challenging!
