Following this post, a number of readers asked if I had any business predictions for 2019.
There’s one prediction I can make with a massive degree of certainty. The business owners (and leaders) who thrive in 2019 will be the same as those who thrive every year.
- The business owners who do all the work. Not just the stuff they feel comfortable with. They know that when you’re just 1% away from switching a light on… you’re still in the dark!
- The business owners who persist intelligently. Here’s what that looks like: They persist with what’s working. They desist what isn’t.
- The business owners who back themselves. When they believe in something, they take decisive action.
- The business owners who focus on what’s important, rather than what’s noisiest. They’re very aware that when you flitter your focus away, you flitter your time away, too.
Thankfully, we don’t need to guess what works. That’s because success leaves tracks. And when we follow the tracks, we see the same core methods of operating, again and again and again.
