Yes, the beauty of CrossFit is WOD’s are usually no more than 15 minutes. This is why many people are initially drawn to the craziness of CrossFit, where most of our lives now revolve. Yet, that doesn’t mean we have any more time during the day to get stuff done. As affiliate owners, potential owners, and wannabee’s, the small amount of time we have during the day consumes us with the mundane tasks that we THINK take priority?! Another day ends in frustration, not moving us any closer to our goals.
If starting an affiliate is on your radar, then it’s time to take some steps and manage your time better. Actually, with a few small tips, you can make great strides and feel like a productive Rock Star. Really!
By incorporating even one of the 3 tips, you will begin to take control of your day and realize your dream of not only starting an affiliate, but thriving while working toward it.
Either the night before or first thing when you get up in the morning, write down 3 tasks you will accomplish today. I am not talking about eating breakfast or doing the WOD of the day, I mean 3 things that will move you forward. Make a call to an owner of another affiliate that you trust and ask their advice on getting started. Find out what it takes in your state to get your business license. You get what I am saying, take some initiative. Even accomplishing one important task a day will move you closer toward your goal.
What’s important to you? Really. If you want to start an affiliate, what are you waiting for? No one else will make it happen for you. Visualize your dream and take steps to get there. Don’t get overwhelmed with the big picture. Take one day at a time, accomplish your 1-3 important tasks that move you forward and make your future a priority. Those mundane tasks monopolize your time; like reading all the comments on the main site WOD, wasting time on Facebook, and watching every video CrossFit produces. Not saying it is not fun, but if you have goals, my guess is they don’t fit into your plan for success.
Just think. If you are accomplishing your 3 important tasks each day or at least making them a priority, guess what? They start to become a habit and good things start to happen. Being productive is addicting, and before long, your dream will become a reality.
Don’t let yourself get discouraged! There will be days where you just can’t get those priority tasks done. No worries! Tomorrow is another day to pickup where you left off. Remember: The best time to plant a tree is today!
