The Worlds Simplist Business Plan

By

I found this in a book I'm rereading by John Maxwell entitled "Talent is Never Enough." It came from Ian Harvey, who was/is the CEO of a comapny called BTG. Olde Ian would ask his "inner circle" to tell him the following;

Two things he should stop doing

Two things he should keep doing

Two things he should start doing

So, you don't have an "inner circle." Do you have a mentor? If so, ask them. If not a team member, or maybe your broker. If all else fails, how about

Self examination

BUT, you need to be honest with yourself.

the Benefits

This is not difficult to do, and if you take it seriously the plan can be highly successful.

You are reinforcing your two strongest habits, and making two additions, and two substractions.

This will be easy to monitor, and make adjustments on a quarterly basis.

That's it.

Practical wisdom is anything but common in these turbulent days. I have Maxwell's book on Leadership. Going to look into this other volume. I may "borrow" the advice for an email blast to my agents.

Happy Holidays.

Kay,

if you take it seriously it will do something that most plans for success won't. it will allow you quarterly to easily evaluate where you are, and to do (implement) it again.

me i like simple.

Merry Christmas
