Location, location, location . . . yep, that’s the success motto in real estate! Most people have heard that location is the #1 factor in real estate investing. Being an entrepreneur is similar where the most important element to success is focus, focus, focus!
I worked in real estate for 15 years and the “location” element was always first on the list. When people got this out of order, #2 or #3 it was without fail a bad experience. Same goes for entrepreneurs and focus! We have been sold a bag of garbage on this multi-tasking concept. DOWNLOAD 11 Simple Tools To Increase Productivity & Focus
We know focus is important when starting a business, but entrepreneurs get overwhelmed. As entrepreneurs we wear many hats and can quickly become scattered and distracted. Strategy and execution suffer because we are moving in many directions. Lack of focus catches up with you fast, lack of growth and profit for the business will lead to serious problems.
Time, energy and money are going to strategies, marketing ideas and products at the same time, leading to none of them being executed well. Multi-tasking is a business killer. Lack of focus equals burning time, frustration and a general feeling of being on a hamster wheel constantly! Frustration!
