Activity = Success - or - Failure
Activity is the measurable amount of work performed to convert inputs into outputs. In business, it is a large part of what makes you successful. If you want to succeed through a passive venture, then good luck! These still require you to take action, to be active, and to engage in regular activity.
Make sure that your activity is productive, that it focuses on your entrepreneurship vision and goals, and moves you forward. If all you are doing is busy work, or spending time on a task that is outside of your vision, then it reduces your productivity and wastes your resources. Do not let yourself get distracted!
Is your activity sabotaging your success?
You need to structure your activity and make it part of your daily process. Your activities need to be conducted in a logical order. If any activity is done out of order, such as before a crucial step, then your efforts are sabotaged. You don’t want that, do you?
You can perform some of your activities behind closed doors, such as when you are developing new products or services. However, eventually those doors need to be opened up, and your work made public.
An example of input being converted to output
As an example, if you are working on a book, you need to publish parts of it as shorter pieces of content, in order to get feedback from your audience and make necessary revisions. Otherwise, you are just writing a journal for an audience of one. Not that there is anything wrong with journal writing.
However, if your goal is to become an expert or authority in your industry, you need to step outside your comfort zone and share your KESWIN (knowledge, experiences, skilfulness, wisdom, insights, and networks). Otherwise you are locked into a lonely prison of your own making, and unaware of what your market is really looking for.
Choose each activity you do wisely, with a focus on it moving you and your business towards achievable goals.
