Life is complicated enough and business has enough twists and turns without us making it worse. Fortunately, most businesses can be reduced to just a few things, or even one thing, that is the key to making it all work.
There is a great scene in the movie City Slickers in which Curly reduces life to “one thing.” However, he won’t tell what it is. He says you have to discover it for yourself.
What is that one thing or those few things in your business that truly make the difference? Those are your top priorities and everything else is clutter, junk and distraction in comparison.
Dare to reduce your business to what really matters. Make sure your team knows exactly what that is. Align your activities so that you are concentrated on moving the dial. And leave the rest for someone else.
