Because of its persistence
We all have big dreams of where we’d like our agencies to be…
Maybe it’s to hit $100,000 (or $1,000,000) in revenue… Or hire your first employee… Or hire enough employees that you don’t have to work “in” the business at all…
These things can feel like daunting, monumental tasks — too much to take on all at once. Because of that, they collect dust until the next new year rolls around.
As we’re approaching the end of the year, I was reviewing some of our TABLE records for a bit of a “year in review”.
Each week everyone puts down goals of things they want to accomplish in the next week. Most of these are focused around “on the business” type things rather than “in the business”.
Taking one of the groups as an example, they have 335 accomplished goals since January 1st.
Based on the group roster, they’re sitting right at 1 goal accomplished per week, per member.
That might not sound like much — but think about it… How much further along would your business be if you made 52 steps toward your dream over the next 12 months?
We’ve had members launch products, build a following on YouTube, create courses, double their team, buy houses, double profits, and win awards — not because of one thing they did, but because they broke things down into small, bite-sized, weekly tasks that they can actually manage to accomplish amidst the chaos of working with clients.
It would be great if we could sit down for long stretches of time working on our business — but that’s rarely the reality.
We can, however, carve out an hour or two here and there to take small (but deliberate) action.
As you start to peer into 2023, I’d encourage you to keep that in mind. Think about one small thing you can do each week to help you get one step closer to your goals. I think you’ll be pretty shocked at how far you can get with small, consistent, deliberate action.
