Are You Doing What You KNOW You Should Be Doing?

“What should I DO, James?” It’s one of the most common questions I hear from readers, colleagues, friends… just about everyone I know.

It goes like this: They get a great idea. They start to tinker with it and ask others what they think. The feedback’s good and they get excited. They tinker a bit more.

They write a short to-do list. Then another to-do list about the stuff they shouldn’t forget on the first to-do list. And a third to-do list covers the “one day I should” to-dos that everyone has.

It starts to get a little overwhelming. Maybe even a little scary. What if it’s NOT such a good idea? What if people don’t go for it? What if it’s a waste of time?

These people try to squash that little voice inside their mind that’s trash-talking their dreams, but it’s put a nugget of doubt in the mix. And they try to work on that to-do list, but it seems like there’s so much to do… and they’re actually not quite sure how to do what they need to do.

A few weeks later and maybe they’ve made a bit of progress. Not much. They’ve been busy. And Facebook was particularly interesting. And then that work thing came up and the kids got a cold.

A couple of months later, and they’ve stalled. They’re going on work on it… just as soon as they have enough time. Maybe one day…

Inaction. Procrastination. The hope-crushers and dream-killers of the business world.

You know what it’s like – I guarantee it.

In fact, I’ve yet to meet a single person who doesn’t stall on an idea they know they should be working on. And that idea is usually an important one – the kind of idea that would really make a difference in their life (or their bank account).

The kind of idea that could change their life forever.

I’ve been privy to a top-secret project that’s been in the works for several months – a special program specifically designed to crush dream-killing procrastination, once and for all.

It’s fun. It’s cheap. It works.

And it’s here.

Commit Action is an action-oriented program designed by business psychology genius Peter Shallard, and it’s all about helping you do what you know you should be doing… but aren’t.

Peter’s been working on this top-secret project for months. He knows the fastest route to reaching your goals is taking action… one small step at a time. But the problem is that on their own, alone, most people invariably struggle and stall.

He sees it every day. And that’s why he created this program: to help you finally – finally! – do what you know you should be doing. Easily, without stressing and with clear results.

Commit Action gives you all the support you need: A personal coach who calls you each week, a profile page where you can see your action happening before your very eyes, a weekly Q&A session for fast solutions to your action roadblocks and a monthly strategy session that’ll ramp up your results.

I’ve seen firsthand what happens when you chose just three small action tasks and start working on them, bit by bit – I’m in the program and have been for several weeks. My Commit Action coach Alex is great, and I look forward to his calls. (He looks forward to my charming wit, I’m sure.) And I got a rare gem of advice in the Q&A session that ramped up my productivity.

So why am I telling you about Commit Action? Because I believe it’s a good program. Because I’ve tried it myself and it works. And because I won’t have to hear, “James, what should I DO?” anymore.

I’ll be hearing, “James, you should SEE what I’ve done this week!”

I’m also telling you because Commit Action hasn’t yet been launched to the general public. It’s invitation only and still semi-secret… only a few exclusive people know about its existence. I’m one of them… and I managed to get special permission to tell my readers before anyone else finds out.

You get to be in on it – and taking action – before anyone else.

Go check it out.

P.S. If you sign up, write in and let me know. I’ll send you a link to my profile page, you can send me one to yours, and we’ll cheer each other on!

  1. Having been in the program for almost three weeks, I’ve already seen a jump in my productivity. (Yay!)

    My biggest problem was finding the time to do my own projects in between client work. Having someone talk to me about the best way to find the time to do it and then holding me responsible.

    It’s scary, but it’s really all about pushing myself to do what I know I should be doing.

    Come Friday, I get to tell Alex (we have the same coach James) I faced a fear and did that something new we planned on, moved forward on my personal project and got client work done too. How’s that for a productive week? :D

  2. Interesting blog entry but it sounds very very similar to a book written by Lisa Haneberg named Two Weeks to a Breakthrough — How to Zoom Toward Your Goal in 14 Days or Less published in 2007 :)

    • I haven’t read that one, so I’ll have to check it out (thanks for the recommendation!)

      It’s really important to note that Commit Action isn’t a book – which depends on self-accountability and personal dedication to actually take action without anyone’s intervention. CA is a program that provides you with a coach, a group of (competitive!) peers to keep you motivated and accountability outside yourself, which is often exactly what people need to get things done.
