Understanding the #1 Factor to Entrepreneurial Success
If you’re an entrepreneur, nothing is more important than understanding and being able to manage yourself. You can have the greatest business plan in the world, but if you can’t manage and run yourself, you will not be able to manage, run and execute on that plan properly.
Today I’m excited to tell you about the best training and system for personal management that I have ever come across, and I have personally been through over a dozen of these – and this is what I use today, every single day, to run myself and run my businesses including my Amazon business.
How Todd Herman & Daniel Audunsson First Met
I first met Todd in 2014 while I was in Chicago, Illinois, at a live mastermind event being held by Perry Marshall & Richard Koch. We knew of each other through a few mutual business connections that he was working with in the Amazon & eCommerce space. However, we hadn’t had the opportunity to meet yet.
First a little back story.
Who is Todd Herman?
At the time I didn’t know the extent of Todd’s experience as an athletic as well as a business performance coach and entrepreneur himself.
To fill you in Todd has worked with many athletes and actual Olympians, billionaires, high-level business people and world-class businesses, as well as being voted the World’s Greatest Salesperson in 2010. Not only that Todd has been featured in some incredible publications including…
Then in early 2016 he created his first online training program, called The 90 Day Year, to help entrepreneurs achieve mastery in the area of personal management – which I as an entrepreneur know how incredibly important it is to master and that it underpins everything else in your business as well as your life.
Because we knew of Todd and he is known in the community of eCommerce entrepreneurs, my business partner Ryan Coisson, and I heard about Todd’s 90 Day Year program and we knew we needed to get access to it.
Here’s the Mistake I Made with the 90 Day Year
Interested, but I guess not well informed enough about the program, I didn’t actually access and consume any of the content from the course for about six weeks.
Maybe you’ve done something like that before as well so you can relate.
Being a full-time entrepreneur for about four years now, I have seen my share of personal management programs, such as the classic How To Get Things Done by David Allen, Robin Sharma’s Your Productivity Unleashed Program, and more. And while those are all great programs, I thought to myself this would most likely be no different than most of the other personal development programs on this topic out there.
But I was wrong.
Around the middle of February, 2016, Ryan flew over to the Philippines for a meeting we had with two partners at the time on an eCommerce brand. We also spent a couple of days working together in person, and one day our conversation shifted to the 90 Day Year program by Todd Herman. We started going through some of the videos inside the course – and from then on out it had my full attention.
Within two days I had consumed the entire course and started implementing the system myself, and I have been using Todd’s 90 Day Year program every single day since.
It was just that powerful.
Why is the 90 Day Year Program Different?
First off, the name of the program is important – The 90 Day Year.
What does that stand for?
To begin with, it is scientifically proven that 90 days is the optimal period for planning, and that humans cannot efficiently plan further ahead than this. So this is one reason for the 90 days.
But the main reason is that it stands for the basic premise of the course which is that if you use this system, you will make more progress in 90 days that most people do in an entire year.
It is important to understand how this can be true. And that essentially comes down to proper, results-oriented planning and then placing the proper time, energy and effort into executing on the exact things that matter and move your business forward on those plans.
You see, the vast majority of people spend most of their time working but not making progress.
You can maybe relate…folks can get caught up in being busy being busy.
They spend most of their time on things that are not actually important, procrastinating or simply in a state of confusion, not knowing what they should be doing to move their business forward.
Most people would like to spend less time working and make a lot more progress, but they simply do not know how or are not conscious enough of the fact that it is possible to make that happen. We see this a lot when we do personal coaching and consulting.
Don’t worry all hope isn’t lost.
There is a solution to this.
And it lies in a certain set of principles, habits, and personal management techniques – and how to tie them together in one congruent, efficient and very easy to implement system.
The 90 Day Year Difference
The 90 Day Year is not some ridiculously large training course that would take you months to go through – in fact, it is a rather short course to go through – but a truly operational system that actually WORKS in real life.
A lot of programs have plenty of great theory, and theory is all fine and well, but it does not matter if it is not practical and easily applicable. It needs to be simple and practical enough to use without too much concern or time having to be invested into actually applying the system.
This was always a challenge for me with so many of the other methods out there that required massive planning books like Tony Robbins’ Rapid Planning Method (RPM) and Todd has solved that.
I feel this is one of Todd’s greatest achievements with The 90 Day Year system – which to me is the first system I have been exposed to that truly succeeds at this, and at the same time is very robust and has every element to it that matters.
The 90 Day Year has the perfect solution to putting the theory, techniques and the research behind the program into practical use – and this is what ties the entire system together operationally, and makes it so easy to use and stay on top of – and that is the 90 Day Year Workbook.
With the program comes this Workbook, that takes you through an entire 90 Day Year.
The 90 Day Year Wins a Stevie Award
Todd Herman believes in making his program and company so different that in October of 2016 Todd announced that they won the prestigious Stevie Award.
Here’s a photo of Todd’s announcement on Facebook.
Here are a few photos from the Stevie Awards ceremony with Todd Herman.
Todd’s Secret Weapon – The 90 Day Year Workbook
It starts with a questionnaire that enables you to analyze your previous progress and current status of your business, and it’s the perfect tool to start using The 90 Day Year for the first time.
By answering the questions that are laid out in front of you, you automatically lay the groundwork for the planning that is to come, and is what follows from those questions. This is where you do the actual planning for your 90 Day Year, set your goals for the period and line up all of the action items you need to complete to reach your goal.
One thing that is unique about the 90 Day Year system is that it utilizes a proven and increasingly popular approach to planning, execution, and accountability, called the Sprint methodology.
This is an agile approach to work, which means that it has a great deal of flexibility to it.
It is usually used within teams, where each member takes on a certain role, and the team plans 2-week increments of work with measurable two week Strategic Performance Indicator goals (SPI’s) and then works in unison to complete the committed tasks for the two week period.
Then the team reviews the progress and SPI’s with measurable objective data that is derived from the work, and goes over what went bad and what went well, what can be learned from it and so forth.
And then finally plans another two weeks of work and commences to focus only on executing the committed tasks during that period, before reviewing progress and repeating the cycle again.
Ryan and I have actually used this methodology within our own teams, and it works incredibly well. So this is something that caught my attention immediately, and I had never used this myself for my personal planning and work.
Are you ready to join the 90 Day Year?
The Power of the Sprint Methodology
By utilizing the Sprint methodology, it creates this constant planning and feedback loop, which makes you both organized and fixated on execution, but at the same time flexible and adaptable and in a constant state of reviewing progress and results, and adapting work to reach your goals as you work towards reaching your 90 Day Year goals.
This is unique and something that I can attest that every other system I have used for my personal planning and management has lacked.
This system also creates powerful momentum and motivation as you get more of the RIGHT things done, which leads to great results and growth in your business.
How the Sprint Methodology Started
From my understanding, Sprint methodology was developed initially for tech startups and software development, as a response to outdated, rigid approaches to work, which simply do not work well anymore and are not in tune with the rapid changes of modern times.
This is especially true in online fields of work, such as eCommerce. There are constant changes and developments that we simply must stay on top of and in tune with the trends, or risk falling behind and losing out on opportunities and being beaten by the competition.
This system has the modern approach that combats this and allows us to constantly stay on top of our game and focused on results rather than a rigid system that can become outdated quickly.
How I Started With the 90 Day Year
When Ryan and I first started going through the content of the 90 Day Year course, we were at a stage where we had to make a big key decision on how to move forward with one of our businesses.
So we went through the Workbook and applied the system, and the questions drastically helped shape the direction of this business, and we discovered many different things we hadn’t thought of or been fully aware of before.
It is amazing how by asking the right questions that you may never ask, and thinking about the right things, it can make all the difference and allow you to make much smarter decisions for your business that can obviously have a night and day difference on your results at the end of the day.
That being said, these questions and the direction the system provides in your planning is also incredibly valuable.
What Comes with Todd Herman’s 90 Day Year System?
First, to see a full list of what comes with the December 2016 edition of the 90 Day Year program visit Todd’s official site here.
Now in addition to the 90 Day Year Workbook, there is also something called the 90 Day Year Action Planner.
This is something that you print out, and it has a Monthly, Weekly, and Daily action sheet.
I print this out and use it religiously every day, and what is so great about these sheets is that they contain all the elements of the system on them, so by using them, you cannot miss the elements that matter and it becomes very hard not to do things right.
This is one of the things that I love the most about the 90 Day Year, and it is near magic how much this helps me stay focused and on track with my progress and application of the 90 Day Year system.
It is from the application of this action planner that the rest of the main benefits of the 90 Day Year program shine through.
The Newly Designed 90 Day Year Action Planner
Todd Herman has recently made an announcement to the 90 Day Year students that they have just created a super durable 90 Day Year Action Planner.
Here’s what it looks like.
The planner contains 3 Removable Tabs/Bookmarks so you can mark the most important pages your working on for.
[+] contain a ‘Quick Reference Guide’ on proper use of the most important areas
[+] are made of white-boarding material and contain a blank side to them so you can draw, sketch, or brainstorm important ideas.
Important Note: This is Action Planner is only available to 90 Day Year Students and isn’t available for commercial sale at this time.
What Specifically Comes Inside the 90 Day Year Program
1. Todd’s Proven 90 Day Year System
2. The 7 Mastery Modules
3. A Private Facebook Community Utilized for Support and Coaching (Todd is very active in this group himself, which is awesome.)
4. The 90DY Accountability Partner Program
5. 8 Live Support Sessions – Recordings Are Also Available in the Members Portal If You Can’t Attend Live
So far I have used up over 300 pages of this planner, and let me tell you why.
By applying the planner correctly, you avoid the feeling of overwhelm, guaranteed.
Because the way it works is that you plan your work in manageable chunks based on your larger 90 Day Year Plan.
You first plan your month, where you can create overarching themes for your work, where you focus in on certain aspects of your business. This could be, for example, systems and processes. Sales funnels. Creating new products. Improving branding. And so forth. You may even create a theme for the entire 90 Days, or just the two week Sprint, or even just a single day. It doesn’t really matter but what matters is the application of this concept of creating themes that help you be conscious of what you really want to accomplish, right now.
Of course, you will have all the action items you want to complete during the 90 Day Year laid in front of you already with the planning you did at the start of it, but you can create these themes within those 90 days that are really fun and very helpful regarding avoiding overwhelm. You simply disregard anything outside your current focus theme and two week SPI plans (which as you remember, you create every two weeks).
Ryan, Todd and I talked extensively about this part of the 90 Day Year in an online workshop we did called Business Olympians.
Daniel’s Addition to the 90 Day Year
I have also made one personal addition to this system and the 90 Day daily planner, and that is that within the notes section of the planner (which is really empty space for you to put whatever you want inside), I put 5 items that I want to make sure I tick off each day by completing.
First, there is PAP, which stands for my “Pro Athlete Protocol”. This is something I learned from Robin Sharma, and it is my personal routine that I start each day with and it includes affirmations I say and questions that I ask myself, meditation I do and visualization. This ensures I start each day off right and get myself grounded, connected to myself and to the vision of what I want to accomplish.
Then there is Workout, which means my daily exercise. Third, there is 3 x 90 Min Pro, which means that I want to spend three times 90 minutes each day working only on creative, or pro-active things, with no distractions such as phone or email during those blocks of time.
This helps me create the space to complete my Top 3 Goals each day for example.
Fourth I have 1 x 60 Min Re, which means the opposite – 60 minutes each day on responding to stuff, or in other words being re-active.
Fifth is 1 x 60 Min Learning, which simply means that I want to make sure I spend 60 minutes each day just learning something.

2 Final Points on the 90 Day Year
I could keep on writing about the 90 Day Year program and its’ benefits a whole lot more, but there are really two more points I want to make you aware of as well that I think are immensely valuable about this system.
Point #1: would be that by applying the system on a daily basis, you put every single thing on paper that you may want to outsource. As you may know, I am a huge proponent of outsourcing, and it has been a huge part of my business and my success from day one. So to me, this is brilliant.
I can simply review my daily planning sheets at the end of each week or month, and find all the things that I spent time on doing myself that I could teach someone else how to do, delegate to them and never have to do that task myself again.
Or, to identify things that I am already delegating on a consistent basis, that I could create better systems for so they never actually show up on my daily planner – meaning that it saves me a lot of time and mental space.
It is always better to not have to spend time even delegating the things that need to get done, but instead, they just get done automatically as part of the processes you have built for your business.
Point #2: I want to mention is that this system truly helps with the “mental toughness” of business. Being an entrepreneur and business is hard, and often it requires you to be very mentally tough, calm and persistent. One thing I can say about entrepreneurship and business, is that the winners are those that can remain grounded, focused and persistent with their vision and action even in the face of great obstacles.
And by using the 90 Day Year system you will have everything laid out in front of you so clearly that with the daily application of the action planner, you will remain focused and with your eyes on taking the action that really matters even in the face of hardship and things that may scare you – which if you didn’t have a system like this on your side, could easily throw you off track.
