My first business class in college was Accounting 101. The first chapter of our book explained the acronym, “KISS” (Keep It Simple Stupid). I find that if your systems and processes are too complicated, you will never do them and they will be useless. One of the simplest tasks we can do as a business owner is a To Do List. Years ago, Benchmark Realty’s Founder and CEO, Phillip Cantrell stated, “If you complete tomorrow’s To-Do List today, you will double your business.” Wait- What??? The premise behind this is that, on average, a person consumes 2 hours of their day getting organized. If you take 5-15 minutes at the end of your work day to write down the tasks that need to be done the following day while they are fresh in your mind, you will save 2 hours of your day, every day! At $100/hr (minus weekends), this would equal $52,200 in additional revenue by just consistently completing this one tip!
My To-Do List has changed over the years in order for it to be a tool that will allow me to be most effective. I start my day with Gratitude, by writing 3 things for which I am grateful. I include a simple Daily Schedule along with my To-Do List that contains no more than 15 line items on it. At the end of the day, I write about “Where did I win today?” I include inspirational quotes to fill my mind with the encouragement throughout the day.
Be willing to adapt, but don’t lose sight of the basics. Do a Daily To Do List. “KISS.”
