Ideas are easy. Executing them is hard.

During my recent conversations, a common challenge has been top of mind for some distributors.

They all have terrific ideas for growing their businesses.

However, implementing them takes a lot of work.

Most days, they live in their inboxes, and the ideas move to the bottom of the to-do list.

I get it. As a solopreneur, you’re wearing all of the hats.

The good news is you can make progress on your ideas by following the steps below:

1️⃣ Break It Down: Chunk your idea into manageable tasks. It’s easier to tackle small steps than one giant leap. Schedule the tasks as appointments on your calendar and consider them client meetings (and you’re the client).

2️⃣ Set Deadlines: Nothing gets things moving like a deadline. Hold yourself accountable with realistic timelines.

3️⃣ Seek Feedback: Get input from peers, mentors, or experts to refine your approach.

4️⃣ Stay Flexible: Things will not always go as planned. Be open to adjusting your strategy as needed.

5️⃣ Celebrate Progress: Every milestone counts. Recognize and celebrate your wins along the way.

Remember, keep it simple.

Completing the low-hanging tasks will give you a boost.

Doing so will give you the confidence to take action on the rest of your list.
