BUSINESS BREAKTHROUGH #6
In my last Business Breakthrough, I discussed the Pareto principle and how 80 percent of your results are being generated by 20 percent of your efforts. But that knowledge only helps you if you know what your 20 percent is—and you intensely focus on that 20 percent that is the highest and best use of your time, energy, and money. Focus is powerful, but most business owners are so distracted that they have no real focus. Being laser focused is like water at 60,000 psi, which can cut through two inches of steel. That same amount of water unfocused will just splash around and create rust.
What are the top three priorities you need to accomplish this week that will move your business toward accomplishing your 90-day goals and your one-year vision? Now look at your calendar for the week. Have you blocked off time to work on these priorities undistracted? Start a new habit this week, and block off that time right now if you haven’t already. Do this and watch how much you can get done. If you set the time aside and permit no distractions during your blocks of time, you will see forward motion.
