Started with a goal, defined metrics, and continued with consistent revisits. Photo by D. Ramos

At the end of February 2018, I had the honor of giving a presentation to an Intro to Management class at Remington College. One of the things that I talked about is keeping metrics.

When I first started my business, a very kind entrepreneur shared with me a goal she set. She made it her priority to meet 100 people per week. This was almost a year ago and I put that metric into play.

I’m sharing with you today the tool I used to keep track of that metric. I carried a clicker around for several months, logging the amount of people I met and/or had a conversation. We can go into a whole discussion of “what’s a contact” but I want to emphasize something else in this post. It’s about forming the habit of reaching out to people.

A number alone won’t automatically give me business but getting used to exercising made a world of a difference. I got to a point where I didn’t need a clicker and my gut tells me what a good week feels like. Now my focus is on great, inspirational conversations. However, I’m anticipating I can plateau. It’s a balancing act.

Maybe you’re like me where decisions are based on guts. Revisiting metrics can get you propelling forward. Are you challenged with where to start? Holler @ me, let’s talk story.
