This video is going to help you understand exactly what is most valuable for you to work on. Next, in a moment we’re going to jump on my computer and I’m going to show you a three step process that you’re going to be able to go through to help you identify the most valuable and important thing for you to work on next. Because we’ve all been there, right? Whether you just went on vacation and came back whether you just finished up a really big project and you don’t know what to do next, or you had friends and family come out for a few days and then you’re trying to get back to work and like, what the heck am I doing right now? So this process is what I personally use to kind of get it all out of here and get it down and then organize it in a way, a clear data-driven decision of like, that is exactly what I’m working on next.

Because once you have that confidence in what you’re doing next, everything else starts to line up and you can kind of ignore everything else from there. You’re just getting started in business online. You can use the same exact process for choosing the right business model, the right approach, the right content marketing campaign, etc, because ultimately there’s 1,000,001 ways to make money online. You need to figure out one way and then stick with it. If you’re following this person, that person, this person, and jumping all over the place, you’re never going to make any progress. This will work in that same scenario. So let’s jump right into it. I’m going to share my screen with you here in a moment and we’re going to get my little drawing tablet out. So one second on that here.

And here we go. I’ve got to clean out that last thing I had going on there. Just doing some copy coaching there. Alright, and on here. So the first thing that I recommend you do is writing everything out. Now there is a process, it’s called daily pages and I believe it’s from a course called the artist’s way, which I’ve been through. And the theory here is when your mind is absolutely full and it’s just running, it’s just running with you. You should do this and that and this and that. And you can’t focus in on one idea. That’s because it’s running. And the simple act of simply writing it all down is the number one way for you to gain clarity. Because once it’s all out of your head, then your mind is free. So number one, write it down. Okay? Then number two is order.

The biggest things, the biggest tasks with a time. That’s a clock by the way. And a dollar representation. Okay? So what I mean by this is now that you’ve written down everything, this is going to be messy. I’m talking just notepads. It’s stuff you can burn, you can throw it, you could shred it, it doesn’t matter. Throwing your comp has been ultimately write it all out. But out of that, you sometimes go back through and you underline and you might think, well like, okay, so number one, I’m going to use myself as a little bit of an example. So number one, I could do a new affiliate site, right?


Number two, I could build a new funnel.


Number three, I could build a new upsell,


And so on and so forth. Do you want to list out everything that you have going on? Everything that was in your mind, bouncing around, whether it was dumb, pointless, irrelevant. Get it down on this list. But here’s the key for this second step. You want to go through and you want to go ahead and note how your estimate, right? It’s just an estimate. And I’m gonna change color for this on how much money? On a scale of one to 10 this thing could bring you and how much time it’s going to take you on a scale of one to 10 okay? So let’s do the money first. So if I’m thinking of new affiliate site, I’m thinking somewhere around $3,000. So I would say that’s $300 a month is what I would expect from a new affiliate site. So I would put that somewhere as a three on my list.

A new funnel might bring me in an extra hundred thousand dollars a month, so our, excuse me, $100,000 a year, so I’m going to put this at a seven a new upsell might bring me in, you know, may I could attach it to a lot of different things. I’m going to say that’s a five. I’m being arbitrary. Sometimes you just got to jump. I’m just trying to use some sort of a parameter that helps me understand about what it will take. And then we have the time factor k, so I’m just going to put t over here. So how long is it going to take me to build a new affiliate site? Now time horizon is important here. What is your time horizon? For me, a new affiliate site is a 10 out of 10 on time, which means that’s the longest term thing. I’m building that one. As the case study.

  1. Great content! I Have a question:

    What about those projects / action that don't generate money right now, but have a huge potential in the future? (there are many things in business that take time to develop). How do I balance those with the short term money generation projects?

  2. I'm lazy so I've always just worked things out in my head, but I'm going to implement this system. I think the idea of getting out of your head could be useful. Thanks for this tactic. I keep coming back to you Miles. I love your giving approach to growing your business. How has that been working out for you? Would you do it any other way?

  3. I've struggled with finding a good system forever, but love this simple concept. In my situation it has been very difficult… at one point we had my Mom with Alzheimer's living with us and raising a 3 year old and 7 year old (all while trying to work at home). So by the time you get to the end of the day you don't know where you were the day before and have to start all over again. There are many to do/goal type apps out there but many have too many features. I would imagine a website that provided a way for others to create simple project lists like this would become very popular… what I would want is simplicity – so that it is easier for the main projects to stick in your head while you are typically distracted during the day. Someone out there, please build it πŸ˜€

  4. I use a decision making model that has one test called the Marginal Reaction Test. It is a measure used to compare enterprises or activities and help guide you to where you will get your "biggest bang for your buck." This video is the frosting on the cake….a visual manifestation of this same principle. Thanks for adding another dimension to something I already do. I can now do it better!

  5. Dang! I'm in the vein! Everything I'm needing at the exact moment I'm needing it is flowing to me at the exact time I need it! This was right on time! Thank you so very much Miles! Excellent, no brainier way of prioritizing the Reign!

  6. That's awesome! I inadvertently came up with a similar framework last year while weighing some options. The one thing that is also relevant to consider is duration of revenue stream. Some products have a limited shelf life or window of opportunity whereas others may take longer to complete but represent more long term ongoing revenue (perhaps your affiliate site in your example).

  7. Great video Miles but is there not a danger that something important but not so high up on the priority graph list will get put off too long. On a slightly different topic, in the video you put one of your choices as a new affiliate website. Do you use a full website for your new products or just a landing page. Thanks for sharing honestly without the usual bs and alternative agendas we get from others.

  8. I like your system, I do not use a monetary value, great idea, thanks. I am not having good luck with staying to completion on my Internet Marketing since I am giving YT priority. I do not think that most of the gurus do the IM work, anyway, I hate to leave an IM project but I am committed to growing a channel, so I appreciate your help. FYI, I have a list and then a top-six that works well.

  9. Super timely video. With summer around, my routine is constantly being disrupted with vacations and family stays, etc. It's tough to come back to the routine, but this framework is super helpful. Thanks Miles!!

  10. Miles this is exactly what I needed thank you I am busy starting and building my YouTube channel and I am always wondering if what I am working on is the most important. Thank you for your videos they help me so much
