Success is a Shedding Process

This week I started doing team focus calls again. These one hour calls, specific to a team’s needs, always seem to have a theme…this week it was about shedding things in your practice for success and tweaking what is currently working. Too often we feel we have to add a bunch of strategies to grow our practice or drastically change what we are doing. When this happens, we pile on extra work to an already “full plate” for our teams and ourselves. In order to evolve a practice, the first level is to delete things that don’t move you towards your goals.

How do you decide what you need to delete? It requires you to step outside the practice and really analyze the following questions:

  1. Why are we doing this? This is the biggest question, if the answer is “I don’t know” you are simply doing something because it has always been done that way, not because it is getting you to where you want to go.
  2. Are there small things that ARE working but need some tweaking? This means you don’t have to “throw the baby out with the bathwater.'” Often we need to just change a few things, or how we do a few things and it will make a massive difference in our practice.
  3. If you DON’T delete certain things, procedures, ways of practice, how will that interfere with your growth? Be honest with yourself as to how MUCH you can physically and mentally do in a given day.

Moving your practice to the next level is about the 80-20 rule. Identify the 20% of activities that give you 80% of the results. Once you do this, become proficient at this 20%. Not only will your practice explode, it will free up mind space and creative space to forge forward towards your vision.
