Proximity is opportunity

Proximity to people you want to interact with is the number one factor in determining your success. Think about these different scenarios

  • You are looking for a significant other and can’t find the right prospect
  • You are looking to start a business but need a team
  • You are looking to advance your career but your current network isn’t up to par

What do all of these situations all have in common? They are require you to do something different then you are currently doing now to be successful. You have to take action and put yourself in situations where you are more likely to meet the right people to accomplish your goals.

If you want a date with a new person you can not expect to meet them if you keep a limited routine and play video games all day in your basement. You have to go new places, experience new thing, check out new online dating sites, anything but the status quo. Same goes for the other two scenarios taking action is necessary to change the outcome. Decide what action you need to take to accomplish your goal and then chart out a plan that will get you into close proximity to the people you want to meet.

My goal for the next month is to get out there more for both my personal and business goals and I’ll report back on my progress.

My Metrics

Do 10 public/street approaches within next month that conclude with asking for a phone number

Meet 1 person met from online interactions f2f

Make 4 new blogging contacts in the men’s interest space that have similar goals as my site.

    I am actually doing pretty good; personally, professionally, great friends. What do I lack?

    “You are looking for a significant other and can’t find the right prospect”

    That’s the one. I have to admit that I’m not much of a “Hey, baby, what’s your number” type of guy. If tried this, with some success, but always with disappointing results (nothing in common, bad personalities, etc). I prefer to get to know a girl and like her a little bit, but I suppose Chateau Heartiste wouldn’t approve.

    What I’m getting from you, Mark K., is “get out of your comfort zone”. Always up for that as it’s sure to help one’s life and expand one’s horizons, which is sure to help one grow in many dimensions. Don’t be afraid to take risks, I would add.

      I have been living pretty boldly since my divorce. Doing what I want interacting without a thought to the results etc.. All in all the results have been pretty awesome so that plus the wardrobe upgrade has me starting strong in 2012.

      Good luck with finding someone Mark I know its tricky.
