Why risk the profits of your business – be single minded about your ‘one thing’
It’s so easy to let the many varied day-to-day jobs of running your business dominate your working life.
Only when you take daily action on the jobs that will improve the future success of your business will you gain the success you seek.
Here are 4 helping hands to get you started:
1) Work out your long term Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG). The goal you feel most passionate about achieving – the one that occupies your mind most of the time, the one that makes you go to work every day.
2) Use Keller’s focus question to help work out what your ‘one thing’ is.
“What’s the one thing I can do today such that by doing it, everything else becomes easier or unnecessary”
This will then become your focus for today, the week, the month, the year. This is the thing, that by doing it, will create a domino effect of success in your business.
3) Block off distraction-free time in your diary each day or week.
So that you can make progress towards your BHAG and do your most important ‘one thing’.
4) Do your ‘one thing’ when you are at your freshest and most energised.
This will be the point where your brain is at its sharpest and you are at your most focused, that way you are making the best use of the diary time you have scheduled.
