If your business is like most others, there are a gazillion things going on at any one time. Yes, you are a believer in Systems Thinking, but you may still have trouble getting to the important task of system development.
You’re not alone. Believe it or not, I have the same challenge.
The solution is to narrow your focus to a single business system or process that could make a difference in your company—the bottleneck or weak link that is limiting sales throughput. Working an hour a day on your business amounts to twenty-two hours a month or sixty-five hours a quarter.
In that amount of time, you can accomplish amazing things—IF YOU STAY FOCUSED!
At the end of a month or quarter, you will see success, including happier customers, more productive employees, and a bigger bottom line. When one business system is done, start the next. Each successful system will recharge your batteries.
You know the old saying, “If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got.” If you want a better business, you need better systems and processes. There is no other way!
Even with limited resources, you can accomplish a lot with one hour of focus per day. If you can afford to hire some help, get a college student or assistant to document your business systems using Box Theory™ Software.
Focus-Finish-Focus-Finish-Focus-Finish. This is key to making a steady improvement!
