Step 5 - Complete
Focus, follow-through, and complete it - Get it done!
If you look at the word "focus" closer, it also means focal point, spotlight, and center of attention. During your very busy days do you find it hard to focus?
If you can answer yes to any of these questions, join the majority of business owners. They, like you are frustrated and do not have a system to focus and complete key goals and objective. Therefore, throughout my coaching program, I will be continually keeping you on track and bringing you back in line with your key goals when you stray.
We will determine what your key goals are, and keep your focused on pursuing them and completing them. We will work on the proper delegation of your duties, so that you can continually be working on the issues that are the highest and best use of your time, and we will be delegating the rest.
Look at this from the standpoint of the different duties that you have within your company. If you pay a janitor $10 per hour to clean your office and an executive assistant $20 per hour to keep your schedule, set up your meetings, arrange your travel, and do your research, etc; then you the owner who is making (or most certainly should be making) a lot more than your executive assistant and janitor, should not be doing tasks they could be doing at a much lower cost to your company. Please understand, when you under utilize your skills, you are wasting your companys money, just like you would be wasting your companys money if you had your high paid Vice President doing janitorial work.
Therefore, the most important thing about focus is making sure you are always certain that you, the business owner, is using your time on issues that are the highest and best use of your time. And remember, the highest and best use of your time will be spending time working "on your business" rather that "in your business" for a specific minimum amount of time every week. When you are working on our business, you’re working on issues that will take your company to the next level of sales and profitability, and free up time for you.
Additionally, one of the major tools I will have you use to stay focused is to increase the effectiveness of your time management skills. If you already implement a time management system, we will fine tune it to make you even more effective, and if you have no time management system in place, we will definitely put one in place for you.
