SETTING YOUR COMPASS
The Dream Builder is one of the best tools to stretch your thinking and get the creative juices flowing. A question to ponder is… What will my business look like when it’s finished? Stealing from Stephen Covey’s brilliant book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” you need to begin with the end in mind…
Now that you have an idea of what you actually want to build or are aspiring to, both personally and in business, we can turn to Time Management. Using the Pareto Principle (80:20) rule, focus on the 20% of activities that will give you 80% of the results… The Skills/Fun matrix is one of the best tools I have seen for assessing the best use of your time.
THE NUMBERS DON’T LIE
Now, before you glaze over, your business numbers are your score card. And if you’re playing to win, they are your mirror, and your guide to reality. Remember… The numbers don’t lie. So creating a dashboard for reporting your critical numbers will keep you on track and focussed on reality. Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) are an easy and quick way of keeping your finger on the pulse of your business.
