When we reach this time of the year, some business owners feel overwhelmed – either by the thought of all of the planning, evaluating, and strategizing they need to do, or by the pressure of not meeting their goals as the year comes to a close. Or both!
It’s so easy to get caught in the trap of working really hard, without knowing what to focus on in order to achieve what we want. There’s so much to do, and we end up muddling through all of it. I’ve been there as a business owner myself.
What I’ve found is that if I shift my focus from assuming everything is important to instead think, “How long will this be important?” It’s much easier to see the 2 or 3 big things that really matter over the long haul.
By narrowing it down, I’m much more likely to succeed at those 2 or 3 major goals.
Our goals often revolve around those areas of our business where profits are bleeding out. In this week’s video, I help you identify your top 3 most important places you may want to focus by going through the 8 areas of your business where profits are made and lost.
