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

Especially now when we are all dealing with so much uncertainty…

But 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 get you towards your goal.

Here are 4 helping hands to get you started:

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

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, the week, the month, the year. This is the thing that by doing it will create a domino effect of success in your firm.

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

So that you can make progress towards your BHAG and do 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, that way you are making the best use of the diary time you have scheduled.


Do one important thing every day that takes you towards the business life you want

Get clear on what you want your firm to look like or where you want your firm to go.
Then work out what one thing you
must do every day so that you get there.
