Welcome to Monday motivation from the pop up business school. And the purpose of this series of videos is to help you get going in the morning. Because you need energy, you need motivation. And you need a little bit of confidence to make things happen each week. And the purpose of these videos is to help you. So today’s tip is about seeing success and measuring success, what I think quite often happens and why when people start new things they stop, and they don’t progress is because they don’t know if they’re making success or not. They don’t know if they’re making progress or not. So what you have to do is set a baseline for where you are now, and then measure if you are getting nearer to where you want to go. And that measurement, that seeing progress is what inspires you to keep going. So to give you an example of this from weight loss, if you were to start to diet, a lot of people give up quite quickly. And that’s because they don’t know if they’re making progress or not. They don’t know if they’re getting towards their goals. So what you need to do is set a baseline for your body fat percentage, and then see if you’re progressing each week, not every day, but each week. And if you’re making progress each week that inspires you to have another go the next week, and another go the next week. So for business, maybe what you need to do is work out how many sales Am I making currently. And can I make one more this week, and then two more the next week, and then three more than next week, and you measure your progress and your success. So what you need is a baseline of where you are today. So maybe your baseline is I’ve got X number of Twitter followers, I get x number of hits to my website each week, and I’m making x number of sales. And then what you do is you put your effort and energy today into improving those numbers and measure them each week and see if they improve. And it’s the improvement that you can measure and see that will motivate you and give you energy to keep going. What gets measured gets improved. So take a baseline today of where your business is, and then throw your heart and soul into moving it on.
