Last week we had a couple hundred LOs learning from each other at my 2-day boot camp. One of the things we talked about during a break was…
It’s a way to determine whether or not to work on a new project. You know, working on a way to get more leads or working.
You see, there are so many “good ideas” thrown around these days, that we have to make sure we stay focused on those few things that actually work.
Here’s what ICE stands for.
This is the filter I use to decide whether or not to start a new project.
IMPACT: Once this project is completed, what is the projected impact that the results are likely to have?
In other words, are the results of this project going to “move the needle”?
CONFIDENCE: How confident am I that I will get the desired results mentioned in the IMPACT statement?
This is actually pretty easy… assuming you are hanging out with the right people.
You see, all I have to do is see what some of our Freedom Club members are doing, look at what they are doing, then copy their actions.
When I copy what somebody is doing, I’ll get the same results.
I stay away from unvetted FB groups and such. I see some people giving all kinds of advice when in reality, they have a “struggle bunny business” themselves.
So be very careful on this one and just simply copy the winners.
EASE: How easy will it be to complete this project?
To be more precise, it’s really asking how easy it will be for my team to complete the project.
See, they have different skills than I do. Some of the things that I think are hard, they think are easy… and vice versa.
So the more complete question is, “How easy will it be FOR THE RIGHT Person to complete this project?”
I measure all of these on a scale of 1-10. For me to work on a new project, it has to rank an 8 or above on all 3 scales.
So it has to rank “8” or above on expected impact, “8” or above on my confidence in the results, and “8” or above on how easy it will be (1 being very difficult and 10 being super easy).
Put this little exercise to work and you’ll find yourself working on extremely useful projects that provide many new closed loans, and it’ll be easy to do.
We often think that massive results must always take “hard work” and “grind”.
If you find yourself grinding, it’s likely you are doing it wrong…
