Perhaps you have set your alarm clock to wake up and just got so used to the noise that you can sleep right though it.
I can assure you that we couldn’t have achieved our breakthrough with IT appointment setting without having a solid deadline in place.
If setting deadlines is going to work for you then you need to be realistic with yourself and set deadlines that are in the realm of possibility.
For example if you have a desire to become a millionaire but you’re starting out at ground zero then you can’t set a crazy deadline that you have to achieve great wealth within a week.
That’s insane since you must be expecting to use the power of the deadline itself to do all the heavy lifting of finding a plan and working that plan to achieve your goals.
In the case of the alarm clock, if you know you’re a heavy sleeper and it’s extremely difficult for you to wake up then setting the alarm to go off at 5:00 am would simply be unrealistic.
If you really want to unleash the power of setting a deadline to realize your dreams in IT appointment setting for your managed services business then you need to build a burning desire to reach that deadline.
In other words you need to build a strong emotional connection to the desire to reach that goal that would be comparable to you desire to keep from getting foreclosed on and thrown out of your homestead.
Therefore the idea is that as this deadline looms you should become even more energetic and work even harder because the very thought of missing this deadline should feel like a huge loss with heavy consequences.
One thing is for certain, if you don’t figure out how to leverage to power of setting realistic deadlines that you are passionate about then you will never achieve staggering IT marketing victories or breakthrough.
