Last week in Dallas/Fort Worth we received a whole season’s worth of winter weather in one week. You could say emphatically that it was not a “normal week.”
XM Truth: Disruptions are Normal
Business Owners and Entrepreneurs, we often get pulled away from strategically significant work and stuck in the technical trenches of our business. And even though “Firefighting” work can be quite fulfilling, to make Xtra Mile Progress we must return as quickly as possible to “Fire Prevention.” Three best practices for consistent, strategic progress:
1. Have strategic plans, IN WRITING
2. Schedule weekly time for strategic work
3. Join in an accountability relationship with a peer, coach, consultant
Every owner I know struggles with this balance. Do not wait for a “normal week” to lead your business forward.
