Hey, it’s Pat here and in this episode I want to talk with you about what I consider my daily must dos. Now, you know, I kind of borrowed the line from Disney. If you’ve ever checked into a Disney resort or something, one of the standard kind of TV spots that they play on their channels are the Disney must dos. The things that they, they feel like everybody must enjoy to get the most out of their Disney experience. Well for me, the daily must dos are those things that I feel like have to be part of my day. If I want to get the fulfillment personally and professionally that I’m looking for out of my daily experience. Now there are things that happen throughout the course of the week or the course of the month that kind of slide in and out of this list. But as far as things that happen on a daily basis, so not, you know, Hey, I’m going to meet with my accountant or review my P and L, that’s a monthly thing. Or I’m going to record an episode of the podcast or something else. But there are seven things that I feel like have to be part of my daily must do list.
The first is I need to connect. I need to get an email out to my prospective clients. People that basically I feel like are you know, that I’m building a relationship with. I need to, to grow that audience. I’m constantly trying to connect more and more deeply with people and with more people. And so for me that’s a daily email for you. That may be social media, that may be a combination of email and social. There, there are a number of ways to do it, but I feel like from a business standpoint, if I’m not building new relationships and strengthening relationships with prospects, then eventually I’m going to see the ill effects of that when it comes to, you know, what my, my clientele, my, my revenue, my profit looks like. So that’s number one.
Number two is I’m going to make offers every day. I’m going, going to essentially invite people to participate in what we do in some way, shape or form. Now, more often than not, that’s just a PS on my emails that offers an invitation whenever somebody is ready to participate in what we do. But you know, attached to this podcast, there’s an invitation. Sometimes I make direct offers, sometimes I open enrollment in certain programs, but I’m going to continually make offers basically on a daily basis because, you know, I never know when somebody’s ready to move forward and start to work together in growing their business. So I’m not going to wait around and make those on a weekly or a monthly basis.
Number three is either coach or create. And for me, a lot of times that’s going to be one-on-one or group coaching or an in-person mastermind or something like that. That’s how it usually looks. But you know, I may block off a day and spend it filming to create an asset that will add value to my client’s lives. Now in your case is, you know, you’re, you’re probably coaching most days, but you know, maybe you’re filming some on demand workouts, maybe you’re creating a library of videos for exercises that you’re going to now be able to provide your clients. So, so that might be a way to kind of translate that to what you’re doing.
The fourth one, you know, I just need to be active. I need to, to, to train or workout in some way. You know, obviously everybody in our industry has their own iteration of that, but I feel like, you know, that’s just a deposit in myself that’s gonna make me better for my family, better for the people that I serve. You know, obviously you know, the, the whole kind of put your oxygen mask on first thing that mentality applies.
The fifth is, you know, I’m going to read on a daily basis now on and off with studying other things, audios that I may listen to while I’m going to walk or you know, videos for certain programs, but I read on a daily basis and probably have read I would assume 90%, 98+% of the days since I was probably 10 years old. And that’s just my way of trying to both you know, learn and, and improve. But then simultaneously it’s a way to, to disconnect. It’s a way for me to put all my focus into that thing rather than kind of letting my mind race in other areas. So, so maybe your thing is listening to podcasts or watching videos, but obviously you know, if you’re going to be great in anything, you need to be a lifelong learner. So I would encourage you to find some way to, to make learning part of your daily must do routine.
And then six for me would be writing. You know, I write pretty much on a daily basis. That’s part of like, if I’m going to feel fulfilled for the day, then I’ve written something. Now, it may be the newsletter that people see that goes out. You know, each day it may be you know, a few words for a book. It may be you know, some other asset that I’m going to use a landing page or something like that, but I’m going to write on a daily basis. And you may say, you know what? Mine’s going to be video. Mine’s going to be a combination of writing and video. I’m going to just create marketing assets. But for me, there’s a great deal of fulfillment in putting something together in writing that I can go back and find other ways to, to derive value from, to share with other people moving forward.
And then number seven you know, spending quality time with family. Now that may be as simple as playing ball with the boys and watching a movie with Holly. It may be going on a trip. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, but you know, there, there’s time allocated to family each and every day. It’s not something that just get squeezed in. It’s not something that’s an afterthought. And if I’ve checked all seven of those boxes, in almost every case I’ve, I’ve had what I would consider a day won. I’ve had a day that that has, has moved me towards professional and personal goals or objectives. I’ve had a day that’s been fulfilling. You know, and I’ve had a day that that’s had enough variety in it that it’s been engaging and interesting.
So you know, for each of us we probably got our own must do routine, but I figured I might share a mine is a way to hopefully inspire you to document yours and, and really kind of take note about what leads to your best days and what leads to those days that are just okay and kind of construct your plan or, or plan your day in a way that allows you to have more days, one more days that are moving you towards where you want to be. So that’s it. A quick overview of my daily must dos.
