There’s a general rule in business known as the 90-day rule. Whatever you do today, you’ll see the benefits in 90 days from now.
Why 90 days?
That’s usually how long it takes to close projects in the corporate world, to transform your body through exercise, and to form a habit in general. Success doesn’t happen overnight, but you can start to see and measure results in 90 days.
This rule can be used for network marketing. How is your business doing? Think about what you were doing 90 days ago. If it’s not doing so well, maybe you were so busy with paperwork, that you didn’t put in the time to prospect.
How can you make this work for you?
A good habit is to always work 90 days ahead. First, set a goal that you want to reach in 90 days. Then make a realistic plan to achieve it.
To make sure your business plan pays off, here’s another simple rule to remember: one hour a day.
Set aside an hour a day for your plan. Make sure this time is dedicated entirely to what needs to be done to achieve your goal.
Some examples for your plan: keeping in touch with past clients, meeting new ones, doing some cold calling, making a presentation, attending a training session, etc.
If you have more time to devote to your plan, that’s even better. Keep at it every day and you’ll see the benefits in 90 days.
The 90-day rule helps you to overcome more difficult times because you understand what’s going on with your business. Looking ahead to success also reduces some of the pressure.
Always remember your ultimate goal, because that will keep you doing what’s important to get there.
