I read something yesterday (I’m tired today from 12+ hours of international travel so I can’t tell you where I read it or even who said it) that resonated with me about driving focus in your business.
- Make a list of 20 things that you could do to grow your business.
- Then cross off everything except the top 3-5 – the best ideas.
- If you find yourself working on something NOT on the LIST STOP IMMEDIATELY.
The idea is that we lose focus too quickly and don’t do the things that really matter most.
I read a book a few years back called The One Thing that suggests focusing on the one single thing that is most likely to impact your business and letting go of as much else as possible.
Success in business is just as much about the things that you don’t work on as the things you do.
This was a great reminder for me to stay focused and really be careful about how I spend my time and energy.
Relentless focus on what really matters wins.
Don’ t allow yourself to be sidetracked.
