This week I am recommending two books. One book is about the journey that Gary Keller from Keller Williams Realty went on to change his daily focus and in the end this allowed his business to expand. The ONE Thing challenges us to find what we are good at. What is the one thing, that if we do that consistently, would not only fill us with energy and purpose but move our business forward. You can take this to focusing on one thing at a time that when in series can reach a greater goal.
The other book is Free To Focus by Michael Hyatt. In one section of his book Micheal speaks on creating a NOT To Do List. This is the other part of finding your ONE Thing, what should you stop doing or say no to? Now stopping my charting would mean I wouldn't get paid for my services. I have actually thought of this at times and occasionally will treat someone for free instead of wading through the paperwork. What I can do is find alternative ways to accomplish this task. Dictation, templates for each of the topics that are common, and even delegation or hiring a scribe are a few ideas to decrease the workload of my current system. I am sure there are others and my goal for the next few weeks is to figure out a way to decrease my daily charting.
