Building a Business is Like Eating an Elephant!
Recently, I read an article about how to tackle and complete a big task or project. The premise of the article was a familiar theme to me—break the task down to smaller, more manageable sub-tasks. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. It’s the same idea.
This is a true principle, and it makes a lot of sense. It is also one of the underlying premises of Box Theory™ methodology and software.
BREAK YOUR BUSINESS DOWN INTO BOXES (SYSTEMS). DETERMINE THE VITAL FEW BOXES THAT DRIVE THE SUCCESS OF YOUR BUSINESS. ELEVATE THOSE BOXES TO HIGHER PERFORMANCE LEVELS.
You build your business by developing one box after another according to your set priorities. As you improve the lower-level boxes, the higher-level boxes naturally get better.
The key to success is committing time each day in The Zone. Work on your business for one hour at a time, one box at a time. Eventually, you will eat the elephant; you will have a smooth-running business that gets good results, even when you’re not around.
When you think about it, there really is no other way!
