There are many important aspects to running a successful business today. But one practice, if done consistently, will almost guarantee that you will move ahead of your competition. “What is it,” you ask??
I personally first learned this idea when I was a cocky college kid. I had a professor say to us, “If you go out and read your electric meter every day you will save money on your electric bill.” Well… I thought he was crazy and I was determined to prove him wrong. But what happened shocked me and my room mate. As I read that meter everyday we found ourselves turning off lights quicker, not running the A/C as much - heck we even turned off the breaker box. We didn’t know that if you do that too many times you can break the breaker - ooops. But, at the end of the month our electric bill was $18!!! Are you kidding me??? All because we focused on how much electric we were using every hour of the day.
So… how does this ONE THING get applied to your business?
Most would agree that in the world of professional basketball Michael Jordan is the greatest player to have ever played the game. What amazes me is his magnificent talent. Not many people could retire from the NBA, begin playing baseball, come back to professional basketball and still be at the top of his game.
There is another person in a similar profession that is truly amazing in his own right. A sport that is full of past and present heroes. A world that is extremely competitive. That world is professional golf, and the person is Tiger Woods.
Now, many of you would take issue with me if I said Tiger was and is the greatest golfer to ever play the game. And I know he has had some legal challenges over the past couple of years.

The reason I feel he is such a great champion is because of his focus when competing.
