OK, if you’ve done a good job so far, this is where business planning meets action. It’s time to launch! 20% of your work will give you 80% of your results so due the right 20%!
- Look at your first year goals and for each one, define the actions that will need to be done to meet each goal.
- For each action vote on how hard it is (not how long it will take!). Use something visual like animals. Is this job a: chipmunk, squirrel, rabbit, raccoon, rabbit, wolf, grizzly bear, elephant! That just gives you a quantity for the work.
- Assign a dollar amount to how valuable each action is to the company.
- Now all you have to do is compare the dollar amount to the work measurement you described on, and do the tasks the will give you the most result for the least amount of work.
