Depends on the problem being solved.

For instance using the word 'What' instead of 'Why" can be done immediately. Implementing VRWEB tours requires more consumer and cost research before I invest.

really depends upon what it is.  Sometimes it's immediate.  Sometimes it takes research and time to impliment.  Somtimes I decide it's not right for me.

Implementation is often a moving forward plan. We are still working in the business and time is a factor.  Some things are implemented immediately others take some time to integrate.

Not everything you learn requires action.  Some things may not fit in with want you want to accomplish and other things are worth implementing quickly.  Each person is different.

I'll run these ideas by my coach and see what makes sense to incorporate or not. So typically within two weeks I'm implementing or passing on the ideas. Not all good ideas are good ideas for my business model. I have to be selective so I do not get bogged down in the analysis part. Walk the walk the rest is just talk.

Praful,

Whenever, I learn something new I take time to digest it, and see if it applies to me or us in this instance.  Does it fit who we are, and does it fit our market.  There are a lot of good ideas out there...You have to be judicious in what works for you.  A

It depends... on the item and where it might fit into my business model at the time.  The "would sell" list for example, is a great concept but I don't work with many buyers who are laser focused on a particular neighborhood enough for it to be worth my while creating it.  But it's in my toolbag.  Like a left handed spanner, it's a tool and stays in the bag until it's needed... if it ever is.

 

Some things I implement right away, others a few months down the line, others maybe never.  Just depends.

Usually right away or not at all.

Some new trends (video) takes a little prep time to see how you want to do it. In your case, white boards or you personally doing the vids.  Planning time must be alloted.  Of couse, after a year .... it's no longer planning.

It depends on what it is, how much of a difference it will make, how long it will take and how busy I am at the time.  often, 1-2 weeks later, occasionally a day or two later, sometimes months later.

The unfortunate thing is that most don't take action at all; they say they will, but they don't.
