Have you ever been in 'The Zone'
Many years ago when I lived in Aussie I once went 2-over par for 9 holes of golf - and I finally understood what 'being in the zone' meant. I couldn't do anything wrong it seemed. It was like there was a life force that had taken me over and I was simply a spectator of my own actions. It didn't last long - and we wont mention what happened on the back nine. But for a while there was a natural rhythm to things that made everything flow oh so easily.
I tell you this because I saw a similar thing in a client's office the other day.
You may remember our story about the 'magic' a default diary can bring to a business. Well, that magic has now created a 'zone' for that client every day - where the work flows in natural sequence of:
1. Enquiry 2. Consult 3. Quote 4. Commit
What a difference this has made! The rhythm comes from the default diary structure of:
Monday and Tuesday being dedicated to following up website, phone and email enquiries and doing client consultations.
Wednesday is given over to turning the consults into quotes.
Thursday and Fridays are dedicated to turning quotes in booked job commitments, usually from the previous week.
Finally, a 30-60 minute meeting every week is all it takes to allocate work to the teams and now everyone knows where to be , when to be there and what to take with them.
As I watched this work flow I saw an owner in the 'business zone' and enjoying every minute of it. All under control and money coming into the bank account every day.
And this time I think the Back 9 will be just fine
