Growing your business is not a sprint. It's a marathon that requires a plan and a process involving trials, errors and successes.

After analyzing decades of scientific research and case studies, best-selling authors Chip and Dan Heath have discovered that there are simple things you can do to snap the cycle of busted resolutions (things you should be doing that you are not for whatever reason) which can get in the way of making progress with your company.

Here's a snapshot (adapted from "Switch: How to Change When Change Is Hard,” by Chip and Dan Heath):
  • Stop procrastinating.
  • Make better decisions.
  • Give yourself crystal-clear directions.
  • Handle big changes.
  • Keep yourself motivated.
  • Make your environment support your change.
Go here for the entire article.

Are you practicing any of the above as you build your business? If so, we'd love to hear from you on exactly what you are doing and how you are doing it.
