Do I still need that meeting?
Is that activity still productive?
Is it still necessary to have that in our budget?
What impact is my focus on “those activities” producing?
Is the business model still relevant?
What’s the worst consequence if we stop?
Is my master schedule still producing the results I need to see?
Is that decision providing value to the business?
Is that service still appropriate?
Knowing what I know now about that person, would I still hire them?
If it consistently is no longer producing results, creating anger, leading to frustration, draining energy, not making positive impact, then it’s time to change either ourselves, our focus, our financial investment, our time expenditure, or other things. As business owners we design the game. If we don’t like certain aspects anymore, or we are consistently losing, stop the game, go play another, or adjust the rules.
Just because we’ve been doing something doesn’t mean it is still is important or impactful
Step back, analyze, create thought time. You’ll know what is working and what is not.
