On this episode of the Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright discusses how to filter recruits to save time and be more productive.
How do you get a ROI - Return On your Investment?
Your enthusiasm level just doesn't go from 5 to 10 without making an effort or changing your behavior.
Filtering is a matter of your focus and your priorities.
Hiring the right people is how you grow your business. You have to find Kings, Queens, Jacks and 10s in your deck of cards to win consistently. It's OK to get a 7, 8 or 9 that can improve, but it's hard to win when your hand is filled with 2, 3 and 4-level people.
When people start talking about things that aren't important, start filtering and move away to a person that is talking about great stuff. Avoid the wrong kinds of people.
Stay focused and stick to working on items that help you move toward your goals. Do not waste time worrying about what others think. Remember what is important in your life and ask yourself consistently this: What should I be doing?
Minimize the negative and focus on the positive.
People say stuff and people worry about what other people say. When you worry about this, it takes away from your focus.
You have to fight to maintain FOCUS in everything. Focus on what is urgent and what is important. It is a thinking process.
Don't mix up valuable with invaluable stuff. Most people get upset about people, things, drama and don't understand why important tasks are not done.
"What do I do about the voices in my head?" What you say to yourself is important.
You are responsible for the thoughts in your head. Be aware of that and work to keep things positive. The decisions you make have a lot to do with what you say to yourself. Don't let negative forces hurt you. Be mindful of how you react to all situations in your life.
