Your Stoptober Challenge
Every October, the NHS launch their Stoptober campaign to help quit smoking:
“When you stop smoking, good things start to happen!”
“Quitting smoking isn’t easy. Create a plan that works for you to help you reach your goal.”
“Stop smoking for 28 days and you’re 5 times more likely to give up for good.”
And like in business, when you STOP getting distracted by all those activities that de-rail your business, and you START forming good habits that focus on getting you to where you need to be, then great things happen in both your business and life.
One of the biggest challenges you face in your business is getting bogged down in the day-to-day.
Before you know it, you’ve lost your way and, worst of all, you’ve lost your mojo.
So, to help you get out of the weeds, and into the position of creating a business that consistently runs whether you turn up or not, I’ve set you a task…
Your Stoptober Challenge!
It’s really simple; all you have to do over the next three weeks, is answer these 3 questions:
1). What can I STOP doing to either eliminate, simplify, or delegate?
2). What do I need to START doing? What changes can I/my team make?
3). What should I CONTINUE doing to improve performance?
Draw up a one pager with these three headings – STOP, START, CONTINUE – and five bullets under each. Then provide enough copies for you and your team and start using on a daily basis.
Once you’ve completed this, you can then aggregate to identify trends and start implementing.
Not only will this help you prioritise, but it will also provide you with continuous feedback and help you improve performance across your team and ultimately your business.
So, are YOU up for the Challenge?
As always, let me know how you get on, whether it be blockers, challenges, successes, unexpected results etc.
