Actually, there is more than one thing that makes FOCUS sexy, but for me it’s our last step in the FOCUS process (our “S”) and that is…
Strategies would be a good one too, but I think that strategies fall under systems.
A good system is elegant and sexy. It makes the FOCUS process flow so much easier.
Now would be a good time to reflect on the effectiveness of your system(s). As an entrepreneur, we tend to balk at systems (I know I did), it seems that they (systems) are in direct contrast to being free spirited and creative.
But the thing is systems actually allow you to be more in the flow of your strengths!
Creating systems could be as easy as batching your writing in one day, scheduling business calls at certain times, getting templates or hiring someone to do your low value tasks.
You must have some systems in place in order to focus effectively. And again it goes back to knowing you and how you work best. Your systems should be an extension of your needs and what makes sense for you.
That’s one of the key principles I cover in my Cravin’IT ™ system…(eek! That word again). You can learn more here
What systems do you use? I’d love to hear what works for you!
