3 Disciplines for High Performing Business Owners

One of the biggest mistakes people make is that they float through life without truly knowing what it is that they want to accomplish. They hope that if they do go then good will come to them. In Business there is no place for "wishing, hoping and waiting". Strategic planning of your Outcomes is where the Growth and Profits come from.

Just think what would happen if you get in your car and you don't have a destination in mind. You will waste a lot of time, money and energy just driving around. And sure, you will end up somewhere but wouldn't it be better to take a few moments and actually plan on where you want to go?

The flip side of the coin are those people that not only know their outcome but strive to make sure that nothing will ever stand in the way of achieving their goals.

To have the certainty of success, there are three disciplines you must develop if you want to realise all that's possible for your Business. You can learn these disciplines through practice and repetition until they become automatic.

 

  1. Goal Setting
  2. Planning and Organizing
  3. Priority Setting

 

Every quarter of the year is the time to write in detail the goals you will be achieving in that time and the steps you will be taking to ensure you are moving in the correct dirction for your success. It's constructed based on your five year goals, which you must ensure you have written down.

As a result of this five year plan, you will also have a one year plan, and that chunks down to a 90 day plan. Each section of the business is given a title, when this has been completed; ask yourself, "What do I want to achieve in that area of the business in the next 90 days, that will forward the long-term goals?"

The areas of the business that you could possibly be focusing on when writing your goals are and not limited to:

 

  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Client Services
  • Finances

 

Once you have written down the goals for each area of your business, the nest step is to list every task that needs to be completed in the time frame you have given it.

With this level of detail you will know whether or not you are on track for the achievement of your Quarterly goals and the timeframe for accomplishing each of them, so there is forward momentum every week in their achievement.

Through the use of the goal setting system you are now employing the three disciplines that high performing business owners use. It is with diligence and attention to the details that you are goal setting, planning and setting priorities that will ensure you are moving forward and achieving the Business Success that you have planned for.

Do you have a Vision for success? The Vision where you achieve your goals? Now is the time for you ensure you have the Success and Lifestyle you are working towards.

Unleash your Vision to be the Leader within your Business that inspires and motivates.
