The Difference Between Clarity and Focus
Being an entrepreneur means you’re a risk-taker.
The process of starting a business, building structure, marketing, and servicing customers requires time, money, and expertise.
The more you have of either time, money, or expertise, the less you need of the other two.
However, your business will not succeed without clarity and focus.
With clarity and focus, you can move mountains. Without clarity and focus, you’re just spinning your wheels.
Follow these steps to remain focused to achieve your goals
What is clarity and focus?
Clarity is knowing exactly what you want to achieve. Focus is knowing which actions to take every single day to get there.
When you jump onto a train, you have a starting place and a destination. The train gets you from where you are to where you want to be. Clarity is where you want to be. Focus is doing what you need to do to catch the right train to get to your destination.
How can clarity and focus get you to your goal?
Start with a yearly goal, this is your clarity.
Break down that yearly goal into what you need to achieve each month to reach it. Then, break down each monthly goal into what you need to accomplish each week, and further, what you need to accomplish each day.
Let’s say you want to make $120,000 this year, for example. Breaking that down into monthly targets, you need to bring in $10,000 a month to reach $120,000 a year. Each month contains approximately four weeks, which means you need to bring in $2,500 per week. And, if you work five days a week, that works out to $500 a day.
Knowing that you need to bring in $500 today is clarity. Focus refers to the actions you must take to achieve this goal. Then, do the same thing tomorrow, and every day, to hit your year’s goal of $120,000.
How do you do It?
There are basically two ways to build a business. The first is to build a business around your passion, strengths and expertise. You will need a website, a product or service, customer support and you will need to go out and find your customers.
Focus on your analytics to reach your daily goal, and focus on your daily goal to reach your yearly goal.
Why doesn ‘t everyone start a business?
It seems so simple, but most people lack the clarity and focus they need to turn their business into a success. They don’t know what they want, and they’re unwilling to stick with a plan long enough to achieve it. Too often, when something doesn’t work the first time, we give up and chase after another shiny object. Rather than give up, commit to working your plan.
When you have the clarity of knowing what you want and the focus to do what you need to do each and every day to get what you want, success is bound to follow.
