Feel like you’re in a constant operational cycle, and never get the chance to be more strategic? Feel like you are always working IN rather than ON your business?
Here are 9 quick ways to help you get off the roundabout and stay focused on what you really want to achieve so you can continue to take your business forward.
9 Tips to Improve Your Business Focus
1. Set clear goals
The more specific you can be the greater your focus will be on what direction your business is going.
2. Write down your goals
Create a written contract with yourself and commit to achieving these goals. Written goals are extremely powerful and will help you keep your attention on what you want to achieve.
3. Define your compelling purpose
Highlight your motivation in achieving these goals and follow through on your intentions with clarity around why it is important to you, your business and your people.
4. Set specific and measurable targets
Be accurate and precise around what you are striving for and give yourself time frames to achieve your goals.
5. Create a detailed action plan
Break your plan down into actionable steps and surround yourself with supportive resources.
6. Involve your people
Your people are your biggest asset. Motivate them by sharing your goals, delegating tasks and making people accountable. When they know the goals you want to achieve, they will know what to prioritise, encourage fresh thinking and provides direction.
7. Decide on the first steps
Don’t freak out! Break down your goal into small and manageable chunks then get started!
8. Create milestones and measures
Every journey needs a navigation system to track progress. Check in regularly to make sure you are on track.
9. Celebrate the wins, no matter how small
Maintain energy and enthusiasm within your crew to keep people feeling valued, rewarded and motivated. Give feedback and acknowledge individual efforts.
