As we close out this decade and 2019, it is a great time to reflect on your achievements, as well as your goals. Invest time in identifying what went well, what you can improve on and what it is that you truly want to achieve in the future. The first step in success is determining what you want and why. If you haven’t gone through the 4W’s exercise, it is critical to your business to do this over the next few weeks. From which, you can create an action plan and an accountability system.

Having a goal and a strong “why” are imperative to business success. However, having an action plan that is broken down into quarterly targets, monthly aims and weekly objectives is paramount. Yet, if you wait until the end of the week to complete your objectives, you are often left overwhelmed and push it off until the next week.
A new tool we developed will help you assess your situation to determine where you need to put more emphasis in developing your WebCenter business. The WebCenter Owner Self-Assessment can be found in Support Materials here on UnFranchise.com.
I have found that having a daily operating schedule is important in keeping me on track. We know that the daily and weekly tasks are not that difficult. However, what is easy to do is also easy not to do! Therefore, holding yourself accountable to your daily tasks is critical to achieving your goals. Fortunately, there are so many invaluable tools that help us as Independent UnFranchise Owners to do this.

I understand that if I can accomplish the Daily Task, then the rest takes care of itself! Therefore, success is in the daily tasks. “But, I am TOO busy!” This is an excuse we tell ourselves. If your why is strong enough and your goal is clear enough, you will make time. Time management is a fallacy. It is really about PRIORITY management, making room for the most important things to get accomplished. Look at the allotted time again. I have been conservative in scheduling around 2 hours per day for these tasks to get completed, but many of them, I was doing anyways or I was completing on a short break (I.E., lunch time).
In General, for weekly activities, I have 2 evenings with 3-hour blocks to provide me with a total of 10-15 hours each week that is for results-producing activities: selling product, attending/conducting product events, attending/conducting team text/call workshops, attending/conducting plan-showings or HBP’s, or attending my UBP/GMTSS events.
Here are the tools that will help you get organized and prepared to have your best 2020:
- A schedule book with times blocked out each day/week/month for your business
- Getting Started Guide
- Master UnFranchise Owner Program
- Weekly Accountability Report (unfranchise.com > My Organization > Reports > Weekly Accountability)
The key to your success is becoming a master of your schedule! When are you working your business? Do you have a calendar and work schedule? Knowing that you can have anything you desire if you block out 10-15 hours per week, will you invest the time to clearly define your schedule and prioritize the tasks and activities that need to happen?
