If your business traction has stalled, in this article I share 3 steps to kickstart success to ignite your business to the next level.
There are three steps to jumpstart your business and get on the momentum highway.
One of the things I love to do is to look under the hood of a business and deconstruct the motor to understand what works, what doesn’t and why. There are a handful of essentials that make a business engine hum and when missing, cause the engine to stall out.
If your wheels are spinning with endless ideas, but none grab the pavement and you’re frustrated, then I invite you to do 3 things.
- Focus. One turn at a time.
First things first. Focus your efforts on the next most important goal. Accomplish things efficiently and effectively by doing them one at a time. Instead of splitting your energy outward, steer your horsepower in one direction. This is the secret to establishing traction – sparking movement – and maintaining forward momentum. At each turn, your next priority will naturally roll into view, and the full force of your attention will be available to become aware of what’s next.
- Plan. Look where you’re going and pre-pave the way forward.
Define your big-picture goal, then lay the pavement back from that destination to your current location. Map out the specific route and precisely determine its layout for your journey. Time, tools, investments, steps, etc. Familiarize yourself with proven navigation, what it means in your landscape, and your specific path. (Reach out to me for help if you don’t know how to do this.)
- Action. Press the gas. Move…and continue moving.
Make sure, to take that action! Follow through on your strategy by taking the necessary steps to implement ideas and build your business. …But, don’t aim for a single, sizable, “perfect” action; instead, remember the law of compound effect: when we take a series of more minor, consistent and imperfect steps over a more extended period, we effectively carve a new road; we cause a sustainable, significant effect. This subtle but consistent movement is, counterintuitively, how real trail-blazing happens; this is what successful business leaders do.
- Invest. Tend to your tool chest and sharpen your tools.
Continuously invest in your success. Hire a business mentor or a coach, and find a peer mastermind group. Put some skin in the game, take risks, and go all in. Invest your money, time and resources in your personal development and business growth. These are must-dos to keep you engaged and flourishing.
