10 Commandments For A Perfect Business

**NOTE: This is part 1 of a 3 piece series on how to build the perfect business for more profits and more freedom.  Watch for parts 2 & 3 coming soon.

Are you making the money you deserve?

If the answer is no…

It’s because you — like most business owners — don’t know what to do next.

THAT’S why you’re working too much for not enough…

… and may be on the verge of burning out.  Listen, it’s not your fault…

You just need help finding the path.  Every successful person had help at some point.  So today I’m giving you the first 3 of the…

10 Commandments for a Perfect Business:

1. Get clarity on what matters

First, set aside time to actually sit down and identify what you want to achieve in the next 3 years.

Determine the dream destination for your life.

When you know the destination you can chart a straight line to success and decisions become easy.

Next, limit your big goals in the next 3 years to just three major work accomplishments.

For you maybe that’s opening a new location, writing a book, or making your first million dollars using my systems.

For example…

When I helped my friend and Fit Body Boot Camp CEO — Bedros Keuilian — get this clarity…

…he was able to cut the junk from his personal life and get laser focused on becoming a better leader in his business.  The result?

He grew his franchise nearly 10X in just 3 years.  When you get clarity on what matters, success becomes simple and you’ll naturally make more money with less work.

2. Use better planning and preparation

Most entrepreneurs fly by the seat of their pants.  But without a plan for success you’ll waste time or get distracted chasing shiny objects.  Creating a plan for your business sounds really hard to most entrepreneurs…

But you DON’T need to reinvent the wheel!

Like I always say — climbing Mt. Everest is simple.

It’s not easy… but it is simple when you have a plan in place…

Just do what other successful climbers have already done and you’ll make it to the top.  Here’s a couple tips from my best-selling book, The Perfect Day Formula:

First, identify your number one goal for the next 90 days.

Second, work out the 3 big action items that will help you get there…

Including whatever you can do in the next 24 hours to get quick victories and build momentum.

I taught this to my client Matthew Benvie to help him end the nonstop “hustle and grind”…

And with clear goals and a step-by-step plan in place… he exceeded his goals in just 60 days.

That’s the power of planning and preparation.

3. You must have singularity of focus

“If you want to do great things, you must do fewer things.” 

Humans want to have it all.  That’s natural.  But it easily leads to distraction.

Instead of making money we end up with hour-long morning routines… listening to 20 different podcasts… or constantly checking social media.

To overcome distraction, I developed simple principles which make success automatic.  I call them my “Rules for Living.”

And when you create your own rules for living — you’ll dominate your days and become successful in every area of your life.  Let me show you how…

First, identify a rule for your health, wealth building, and time management.

For example, I exercise at the same time every day… I get up at 3:57 am every day… and I write 1500 words everyday.

Rules like these form your identity, change your behavior, and change your success.

Second, identify a rule for what you WON’T do.

For example, I don’t drink on “school nights” and I don’t swear.

Not doing those things keeps me out of trouble and on track.

When you implement these 3 Commandments…

They will quickly put you on track to building a perfect business that makes more money with less stress.

And to keep you growing faster…
