Stacy Tuschl is a best-selling author, speaker, and the owner of multiple 7-figure businesses. She’s the creator of the Foot Traffic Formula, where she helps small business owners get more customers in their door, more profit in their pockets, and more happiness in their homes. She believes that you shouldn’t be sacrificing your life for your business; your business should be supporting your life.
Her recent book is The Implementation Code, goes deeper to the core of why you can’t seem to get things done and gives actionable steps to move you through your to-do list so you can grow your business and live the life you want. The book underscores the power of implementation, where it separates those who have a to-do list and those who actually get things done.
Getting too attached to the big picture can paralyze you from even trying or you start to try but you don’t get there. Then you get upset, throw a pity party, and complain you’re not getting the results everybody else is getting.
It’s rare that we have all the time in the world to do all the things we want to do so then we just don’t do any of them. Instead of creating 365-day goals, break your year down by having those 90-day goals. Building your vision around that gives you a different sense of urgency.
You can have 12 quarterly goals, but you have people on your team that can own those goals as well, not just you.
Don’t use the time excuse because you’re just training your brain to believe this. Always come from a place of abundance, not scarcity. Instead, replace the idea of scarcity with opportunity.
Make to-do lists, otherwise, the chances of remembering something later on that day are very slim because you’ve got so much stuff stored in your brain.
Get yourself a system that works – whether that’s an app on your phone or text yourself messages – that you can always just get back to any time.
Just be committed to growing, learning, figuring things out, and just doing it. And this is where being resourceful comes in.
When growing into your next circle, first, think about who you want to be. Then ask yourself who are you hanging out with? Are they helping you become the person you want to be? You don’t have to make any big announcements that you’re no longer hanging out with certain people. Just do lessen the frequency you’re handing around those who are not helping you be who you want to be.
Be authentic. Start putting time and energy into making new connections and relationships. Podcasts are a great way to meet people to talk to somebody for 30-45 minutes and develop a much deeper relationship versus a DM on Instagram. Join a mastermind or show up at conferences to expand your network.
A lot of us naturally like to be in charge or like to be the boss. So when you’re in a group, and you’re at the top, and everybody’s asking you how you did it, your ego loves it. Wanting to be at the bottom is not a natural instinct.
Get out of your bubble every once in a while and remember what’s going on outside of the little corner where you live.
Stacy took her mornings for writing because it was the best time for her. And she committed to writing at least an hour every morning. She also got some help from an editor with her deadlines which helped her a lot.
Don’t think that being a writer is the words on the page. But being an author means you’re owning this message. And that’s what’s most important because books are really the message you want to share with someone when you can’t be in the room with them.
