Grow Your Online Presence

A-Z of Growing Your Business Online – Hustle

This month I’m taking the alphabet and giving you tips from each letter on how to grow your business online. Today’s letter is H for Hustle.

I’ve been seeing the word “Hustle” a lot in the business world lately to mean “Get Stuff Done“. Here’s my take on it.

1. Set A Goal

Have a specific goal in what you are going to do. It has to be something that you can do to completion right now. If you have a larger project that you need to get done, break it down into smaller tasks and choose what you are going to get done now.

2. Get Rid Of Distractions

All distractions, no excuses. So, that means no social media, no instant messaging, no mobile phone, and no internet (unless you actually need it). This step hurts.

3. Hustle

Now you work. You just do it.

Easy, Right?

The difference between the people at the top and the people at the bottom is often that the people at the top took action on what they know. There is no magic behind being productive. You just have to do it. So, get to it. Hustle!

Let us know in the comments below what you are going to hustle today.

I am learning that if I break my tasks down into smaller chunks, it is much easier to get done.

Otherwise I find myself trying to work on more thing than once. This means that I usually end up getting less done.

As for distractions, I find myself checking my email account more than I should during the day. I need to stop doing that and just get busy working.

Thanks for sharing this tip, now it is time to get back to working on my goals for this month.

    Yeah, I can be the same with email sometimes. I have email under control for a lot of the week, but if I let it go for a day or too it gets out of control and I keep checking it because I know I need to prune it!

Hello Carlie,

Really liked the distraction point. Social media, mobile phones, internet have certainly helped us to grow our business but on the other hand it has also engendered distractions.

Thanks for pointing it out in such a short and comprehensive way. :)
