Every month in business, do 1 percent better.Let that sink in for a moment.
Ideally, you want that 1% to cover every aspect of your business (quality of your product/service, money you earn, marketing, social media, website, number of jobs you book, etc.). All of it is a lot, but it's only one percent a month which means you don't have to make huge changes, just consistent incremental improvements.
In a year's time, you'll be 12% better than last year. That's pretty significant.
Consider the Olympics where a one percent distinction can be the difference between a gold and silver medal, or between being on the medal podium or not.
One percent can be huge.
Thank you, Don Giannatti, for how you phrased this concept!
I have been improving over time, but there are areas that have fallen by the wayside. Those neglected areas have value too, but they often feel overwhelming. 1% feels manageable.
