Is The Answer YES?
Accountability is essential when you run a small business as, without it, it’s easy to allow the important activities – the ones that will drive your business forward – to slip to the bottom of the list.
That’s why I suggest that you implement Accountability Measures in your business and very simply, an Accountability Measure is a measure that you implement which is designed to keep you focused and on track.
The first accountability measure I want to share with you is one that you can utilise every single hour (and sometimes more often than that!) It’s called:
The Qualifier Question
Every single day, opportunities and possibilities present themselves to us and, whether we are aware of it or not, we expend energy each time making the decision about whether or not to pursue them. Imagine your business is a conveyor belt and that those opportunities and possibilities pass by you every minute and hour on that belt…
What ONE question could you ask yourself EVERY time that would make it easy for you to make the decision about whether or not to pursue it?
It must be a question that can be answered with a ‘Yes’ or a ‘No’ and the key is that the answer must be YES in order for you to entertain it. If the answer is NO (or even MAYBE), you simply move on.
This is an incredibly powerful Accountability Measure and one that is completely free to implement!
So, what is YOUR Qualifier Question?
Go on, give it a go!
