As an entrepreneur, especially one who is growing an agency, there are so many hats you have to wear and so many things that you have to do every day, not to mention every week, that it’s really hard to have focus and intentionality. Those two things, however, are important to continued success in building your business.
To create focus for my team, and for myself, I like to ask this question, “What’s the one thing that you could do right now that would make a difference?” Doing this creates both focus and intentionality.
As I think about 90 days at a time in the management of our business, I’ve learned to ask myself, “What is the one thing we need to get done this quarter?” Then, if we have additional time and capability available, I can ask myself the question, “What’s the next thing?”
It is important to focus on the one thing you have identified first before moving on to something else. Try that and see if it doesn’t accelerate your progress.
