It’s so easy to let the many varied day-to-day jobs of running your firm dominate your working life.

This is especially the case now, when we are all dealing with so much uncertainty…

Only when you take positive daily action on the jobs that will guarantee the future of your firm will you gain the success you seek.

Take small daily or weekly steps, applying a single-minded focus to move you towards your goal.

Here are 4 helping hands to get you started:

1) Work out your long term Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG).

This is the goal you feel most passionate about achieving – the one that occupies your mind most of the time, the one that makes you go to work every day.

2) Use Keller’s focus question to help work out what your ‘one thing’ is. 

"What’s the one thing I can do today such that, by doing it, everything else becomes easier or unnecessary?"

This will then become your focus for today, and for the week, the month, the year. Doing this thing will create a domino effect of success in your firm.

3) Block off distraction-free time in your diary each day or week.

This enables you to make progress towards your BHAG and your most important ‘one thing’.

4) Do your ‘one thing’ when you are at your freshest and most energised.

This will be the point where your brain is at its sharpest and you are at your most focused, allowing you to make the best use of the diary time you have scheduled.
