The Empire State Building was built in 419 Days. If they could do that, surely you can grow more than you’re planning on right now.
Most companies simply set themselves up to grow slowly, by setting goals that are too low. I just got off the phone with a CEO who said, well, we’ll grow by 15%. I challenged them, and they’ve now decided that 40% is much smarter, and very doable to.
If they could build the Empire State Building in 419 days, perhaps you’re not stretching yourself and your employees enough.
- Set your goals for 2014
- Commit to 10 projects to make those goals happen
- Break the projects down into all the tasks that need to get done
- And then work your plan.
Plan your work, and work your plan. Don’t set yourself up for low growth. You’re better than that.
