Last week I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to “attend” a SCORE/SBA virtual conference. Of course, anyone could have signed up but I consider myself fortunate because through Silver Flume (Nevada’s one-stop online business portal) I signed up with the SBA for some business advice, help, tools and through the SBA I learned about the SCORE virtual conference.
Is that round about enough for you?
I got several take-aways from the conference, and one of the best is what I now call “Two things business”. Erik Qualman, the Keynote speaker, talked about how these days we can end up spending lots of time reading hundreds of e-mails, checking social media over and over and other ‘stuff’ that seems important. But in the course of that we can get distracted from what will really make a difference to our businesses.
Erik recommended establishing two business outcomes to complete each day. This is a tool to focus on what’s important, which may be different from that which it’s easy to focus on or what takes up most of our time. His recommendation: Hyperfocus on 2 important outputs each day.
I like this. Hyperfocus. Admitting that I really can NOT multi task well. Thinking each day, quickly, about what is most important to getting my business going.
Yes, two things business, every day. My new motto.
