Break it down
Make ambitious goals, lay down what success looks like. This will define the direction of your team. Now, break it down to key performance indicators and set your end goal aside. These small goals are simple enough to be achievable but challenging enough to ensure your company's growth.
Consistency is the most crucial part of building a system. Be consistent enough in targeting your metrics, that it becomes a team habit.
Be accountable for one another. Create a culture that follows up on one another by setting up weekly meetings to assess progress or accountability checks.
Lastly, don’t give up. One reason why startups fail is that they give up too soon. Don’t aim for that quick hit, just focus on being around.
Be patient with your goals and focus on velocity. Make an honest assessment of your progress. If you find that you’re not hitting your performance indicators, it doesn’t mean that you’ve failed. It simply means you’re not growing – and that’s definitely workable. According to Michael Sacca, most opportunities come to the people who are in the game the longest. So aim for consistency, longevity, and steady growth. Spend the time to hire the right people, build a culture you can be proud of and excited to work with and continue that growth.
