When you are in your 20’s, 30’s, and even your 40’s, you don’t think much about time. But as the years go on, you start to realize that time is not infinite. It’s finite. Each and every one of us only get so much time. You begin to stay focused on different things than in previous years or times in your life.
This does relate to how you run your business. One of the significant reasons why CEOs, business owners and entrepreneurs are not as successful as they would like to be is because they don’t use their time well.
The key is to stay focused every single day on your business. Make certain you are focusing on the right things every business day in order to generate profit.
As the saying goes: You need to work on your business, not just in your business.
Now this issue of wasting time doesn’t just apply to CEOs, presidents and business owners. It applies to every single person that works with you and for you. No one is going to be 100% productive. But if people are only being 50% productive, you are going to have a problem.
This is where reasonable business goals come in for each and every employee in the organization including YOU.
Business goals are not just something you dream up out of the air. Goals are reasonable expectations to get the job done that you hired the individual to do.
If you don’t have reasonable expectations of the work flow then you won’t have a return on investment. There are many aspects that go into making a business successful. There are also many things that happen throughout the day that can keep a business from being successful. Lack of focus and wasting time is a sure fire bet to you not getting the results you want from your business.
- You are in business to make money.
- To generate a profit.
- To provide a product or service your customer or client needs.
Stay focused on that goal every day for MORE success.
