Know How to Focus Your Efforts

 

  1. Use the time you've previously allocated in your organizer for your regular Mindset sessions to work on the business, and not just in the business.

    • You've gone several months now protecting this time for the future growth of your practice.  Keep the habit going over the long-run and you will continue to progress by remaining focused on what's important to you and your practice. 

  2. Weekly:  Include Mindset Consulting initiatives on the Weekly Team Meeting Agenda

  3. Bi-Weekly:  The time you’ve set aside for your Mindset Sessions can continue to be allocated to working on the business.

  4. Monthly:  Track and monitor your business metrics and progress, which might include:

    • Number of referrals

    • Number and type of new clients

    • New assets/revenues generated from new clients

    • New assets/revenues generated from existing clients (consolidation of assets) 

  5. Quarterly:  Meet with your team to provide updates on goals and objectives, and assess progress on these best practices and other important initiatives. 

  6. Yearly: Complete the Annual Strategic Plan as a team to reinforce the vision and be clear on future goals.  This should include the following:

    • Progress reports and results on business development initiatives

    • Update your Rightsizing Worksheet and assess growth in client segments, change in average account size and change average profitability per client.  Refer to Best Practice 4 for more information.

  7. Stay the course - remain committed and do what you know is right for you, your team, your clients and your practice.
