My colleague and friend Amy Franko wrote this after listening to James Roche talking about focus. Thanks, Amy, for sharing this with my blog readers!
In listening to James Roche in our Four Ways to Flourish Telesummit, he said something that really stood out to me. He sees 1 quality in those who are able to move from some success in their business to truly growing – 6-figures, 7-figures and beyond.
What is it? Focus.
That ability to hone in on only the most important, income-producing elements of your business, and seeing them through to completion. I’ll be honest – I consider myself only a practitioner on this one, but working each day toward excellence.
Here are a two things I’m doing that have me squarely on the path:
I’m putting my team together. First I created a list of the tasks and services my business needs to run smoothly. Next to each task or service, I’ve listed 1-2 people or companies that can provide that service. I’m also in the process of hiring my first assistant to ultimately become the “point person” for daily operations, so I can focus on the creative side.
I’m creating my business and life schedule. If you’re anything like most entrepreneurs, your calendar has appointments and commitments spread all throughout the week – but no true focused blocks of time on revenue-generating activities. And you’re working late hours to finish what you’re not getting done during the day. I’ve now committed each week on Sunday evening – creating my schedule for the week and creating blocks of time dedicated to focus time, flex time, and open time so I can better manage my business.
James has achieved excellence in focus, and openly shared specific strategies and tactics with our listeners.
