|We’ve all had those days that just seem to drag on and on. Days when you seem to be working, but you never get anything accomplished. For some entrepreneurs, those days are rare, but inevitable.|
However, for many people in the direct sales business, those lagging, unproductive days happen far too often.
What is a Power Hour?
How many hours during the week do you feel you are creating ideas, applying these ideas to making your business a success, and producing work at the top of your game? The more hours you are working at your peak, the more successful your business will be. These hours in which you are able to completely focus on a task and produce results are your POWER HOURS!
Though a successful direct sales business relies on power hours to succeed, no one can expect to work uninterrupted and completely focused on a task for an entire day. And guess what? You don’t need to have a week full of power hours to produce results. You only need a few of them.
Successful people know how to focus when focus is needed. They realize that a power hour is a small block of time and doesn’t need to last for an entire workday. You will be amazed at how much you can get done in a few short hours. With no interruptions, no distractions, and a strong desire to achieve results, great things can be accomplished!
Organize A Regular Direct Sales Business Power Hour
Many direct sales consultants organize a regular power hour divided into 3 or 4 small segments for important task. In doing this and scheduling a power hour weekly or biweekly you will be more effective than attempting to squeeze things in. You may organize every power hour into specific functions rquired for success in your particular business like:
- 15 minutes bookings follow-up
- 15 minutes recruiting follow-up
- 15 minute host coaching
- 15 minutes wrap up of activities generated
A true power hour is the time when energy, time, technique, and focus converge. There are times you may have one or more of these in sufficient quantities, but mastering a power hour takes all four. Energy, time, technique, and focus converge to have a noticeable impact on results because this is your peak time – your POWER HOUR!
What Can Power Hours Do For You?
- Power hours will help you achieve results faster than you ever thought possible.
- Power hours will help you work less. In this case, less is truly more; you’ll work less, but achieve more.
- Power hours will help re-energize you. Have you ever had that feeling after reaching a goal; the kind where you feel more focused, more alive, more motivated? That’s what power hours can do for you.
There is no denying the fact that some work days just go by slowly. It is also true that some days are so unproductive that you might as well have stayed home in bed. However, by mastering the use of power hours you can get more done in less time. If you really want to stay home one day, just do it. By using power hours, you know you’ll get more done than most people who never take a break!
