What is the most important thing you need to focus on at work every day?

What is the most important thing you need to focus on at work every day?

If there was an easy answer to this everyone would know that and every business would be reaching their goals … all the time … What is important obviously depends on who you are, what you would like to do and what your goals, objectives and measurements are.

When it comes to business there tends to be two directions of focus for leadership:

1. They focus on the Hard stuff – the structures, the profit, the money, – the bottom line
2. They focus on the Soft stuff – the people, the experience, the feel good

For some reason leadership finds it challenging to combine the hard and the soft stuff. Surprisingly enough in research and actual factual information, – the one supports the other. Better soft stuff makes for better hard stuff. And better hard stuff makes for efficient soft stuff…

So what should you focus on every day, – if you get lost in-between meetings, tasks, deadlines etc…

One school of thought suggests you “Find your purpose”, every day. Try and instil a culture where you check your purpose regularly. And if need be, repurpose. Were you appointed as an admin person but should actually be called a communication assistant? It doesn’t matter. Focus on what the purpose is, rather than the job description…Were you appointed as a brand ambassador but should actually be called sales-guru? Focus on the purpose, learn the skills and make it happen…

Learn how to balance your hard and your soft stuff – otherwise your performance will not be sustainable, bringing a whole new world of challenges in performance…
