The 6:3 Rule That Will Help You Get Your Life Together

 

If you attended our Career Girl Academy, you’ll know all about the 6:3 rule. It was one of the first things we learned on the day, actually.

The founder of Pure PR, Kelly Marks, told us a few home truths about how to connect with the people in the room and grow your business or idea without spending tons of money.

You should take these two numbers with you wherever you go!

Start with 6 things you need to do 

Open up your notebook and write down six things you want to achieve today. It could be work-related, personal, goals, people to call. Stick to that list, and once it’s done you can move on to six more things.

Doing things in blocks is so much more satisfying than having an eternal to-do list that you never scratch the surface of. There aren’t enough hours in the day for everything, so you have to prioritize and accept that some things aren’t going to get done! You can even do this on your days off and vacations too.

Add 3 people you need to meet

The 6:3 rule is 6 things to do, 3 people to meet. So you have to go out into the world and take that three with you. Wherever you go, try to meet three new people.

This is how Kelly grew her business in the beginning, and how she networks successfully. If you don’t pressure yourself to meet and network with everyone, just three people, you’ll find yourself spending more time actually connecting with them. Networking isn’t just about giving your business card, it’s about getting to know someone and taking the time to listen to what they’ve got to say.

    I like the 6:3 rule! I work from home and rarely step out of the house. We’ve got to remember to remove ourselves from technology and interact with humans! Thank you for this.

    I loved this post, loved the way it has broken down to basic bits and made the goals look more achievable while doing small bits.
