BUSINESS BREAKTHROUGH #7
If 20 percent of your efforts will generate 80 percent of your results as I discussed in the last business breakthrough, what would 20 percent of the 20 percent produce?
You can produce extraordinary results by narrowing your focus and attention even more. Many business owners are overwhelmed by their calendar or to-do list. To get the most out of your time, energy, and money, I would suggest that you go small and stop trying to do too much. When you try to do too much, you tend to accomplish little.
I was recently thinking about the concept of reducing what we are working on to just the top three priorities that need to be accomplished this week and then blocking time on the calendar to be intensely focused on those three things. Then I came across a book on my bookshelf by Gary Keller titled The One Thing. I opened it up to this statement that I had underlined: “What’s the one thing you can do this week such that by doing it, everything else would be easier or unnecessary?” I would recommend picking up Gary Keller’s book. There is a lot of great advice on focus.
Think about the one thing that would make the biggest difference in your business or your personal life and put it on your calendar.
