This is the show where I drop some little nuggets here and there that hopefully can help you grow your business now. We’re calling episode 129, Profound #1. I’m going to do a three-part series of three quick-hitting profound statements or concepts that are built to make us think, absorb and hopefully act to grow our business. Profound #1 is the famous Stephen Covey statement, “What one thing, if done consistently and superbly well, would get you everything you’ve always wanted and take away all your pain?”What one thing, if done consistently and superbly well, can get you everything you've always wanted and take away your pain?

In our many years in business, we have asked, I don’t know how many business owners, that same question, and gave them time to respond. We have never met a business owner that can’t relatively quickly, within a few minutes, come up with one thing that if they themselves, their company, their management team or their board of directors implemented. 100% of the time, they can extract what one thing if done consistently and superbly well, would get them where they want to go and take away all their pain.
Often, we would build the whole consulting agreement around that one thing. I’d like to ask you what one thing if done consistently and superbly well, could get you everything you’ve always wanted and take away all your pain. See you on the trail. Take care.v
