Time Management for e-commerce is an absolutely critical skill area. Time management can be the single biggest block to even starting an e-commerce business. And for an established, busy e-commerce business owner, managing time is just as critical.
In this episode, we focus on the learnings from the wonderful book (and also audio book) –
“7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Steven Covey
This episode kicks off a short series about productivity. Today we’re talking about clearly defining what you’re trying to produce in order to be able to measure productivity.
This very important question came up recently with one of my mentoring clients, which is a very common question among Amazon sellers. For more information on mentoring, you can find that at amazingfba.com/mentoring.
This episode is a continuation of the second habit of seven laid out in 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen Covey. This habit has been a touchstone in my life for about 25 years, and when I apply the principles in this book, my life has gone better. I have found that this book is one of the most reliably realistic books about how life actually works.
The framework for this episode is inspired by the book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen Covey. This book has been a touchstone in my life for about 25 years, and when I apply the principles in this book, my life has gone better. I have found that this book is one of the most reliably realistic books about how life actually works. In this episode, we are covering the second habit of the seven as it pertains to goal setting, “begin with the end in mind”. The first habit, “be proactive”, was covered in episode 284.
Determinism is the belief that “We are largely determined by conditioning and conditions.” It is the opposite of being proactive.
On this episode of Amazing FBA, it’s time to talk mindfulness. If you’re going to become a successful Amazon seller, you’re going to need to a mindful strategy. Whether it’s Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People, or Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, there are lessons we can learn from 20th century business literature regarding mindfulness through the eyes of the entrepreneur. Covey talks in detail about ‘Character Ethics’. These include principles like Integrity, Humanity, Fidelity, Courage, Patience, Simplicity & The Golden Rule. Patience is incredibly important. Don’t expect to get off the ground in only a few months.
On this instalment of Amazing FBA, 10k Collective member Ashley Pearce returns with part two of our interview.
