As entrepreneurs, we are constantly on the go. We bounce from one thing to the next, handle problem after problem, and spend our time making things happen in our business - all in pursuit of our dreams and goals.
It seems like there is a never ending set of things that need done and actioned in our businesses. But, there is one important action that many entrepreneurs overlook and that is this: Many entrepreneurs fail to take time to think strategically each week and determine the most important actions they need to take to be most effective in their business. It is critical that we set aside time, away from the day to day needs of the business, to think deeply on the most important actions that we need to take and plan accordingly for them.
The most important part is to plan accordingly and take action. It does no good to think strategically and determine the actions that need done and then not act on them.
I was reminded of the impact doing this well has recently when I met with one of the Mastermind groups that I run. The group is focused on investing and financial success. We had a spring in-person event where we trained on many incredible topics and the group rated the meeting very well. I asked the group at the end of our time together to write down the action steps they were going to take from what they learned and to plan to implement them into their lives. After a couple months, I did a check and was happy to find that everyone in the group had taken action and could describe concrete results that have happened in their live for implementing their action steps. One person even said that they felt like a completely difference person and their live had improved personally and financially tremendously.
If you don't set aside time to think deeply and strategically each week to determine the most important actions for your business, you are missing out on one of the biggest secrets of successful entrepreneurs. Take action and start doing this in your life!
