Leonardo Di Vinci once said that “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”  When it comes to reaching your business goals, nothing could be truer.

Many people struggle to achieve success because they over complicate it.  They think they need a detailed strategy with intricate tactics. 

They think they need expensive, sophisticated tools. 

The truth is they don’t.

One of the benefits of working with a coach is outside perspective.  A coach can help you strip away the complexity and hammer away at simplicity.  And, what you’re left with is a workable, achievable plan for success.

Your coach will help you stay focused on the four things you really need to succeed:

  • Clear goals
  • Good time management
  • A series of quick wins
  • Momentum

Clear Goals

Clear Goals

If you don’t have a clear destination, any road will take you there.  If you’re struggling in your business, ask yourself if you really know what you are trying to accomplish.  Do you have a clear target?  Is it measurable?  Is your time frame realistic?  All great coaches will help you determine your goal and then keep that goal in front of you, so you don’t drift.

Time Management 

Most people don’t have an agenda for their day, so they end up as an agenda item in someone else’s calendar.  There are a million things you could do today; most of them will have little impact on your success. 

Be sure that the bulk of your day is committed to activity designed to help you achieve your goals (that’s right, step one – Clear Goals – is the first step to real time management). 

Time management is not about which calendar or productivity apps to use.  It is about clarity and intentional focus.  Ask your coach to help you determine whether you are using your time wisely.

Quick Wins

People get discouraged because they swing for the fences and come up empty.  Our coaches are great at getting people to focus on smaller steps to achieve small quick wins. 

When you’re winning it feels better.  You experience a sense of accomplishment.  You build confidence.

A series of small wins will keep you focused.  Look for small wins each day.  The end game may be a closed transaction.  The win is making 5 calls today.


Once you start to build a series of wins, it’s important to keep the momentum going.  Too many people get a few wins, and then start to coast.  The truth is when you’re coasting you’re either slowing down or going downhill. 

The best way to maintain momentum is to revisit your goal and re-engage with why you’re doing what you’re doing. It’s easy to drift.  Your coach will help keep your goal in front of you.

Success is simple, but it’s easy to over complicate.  Your coach will help you focus on what’s truly important – have a clear goal, manage your time so that it supports the achievement of that goal, look for quick wins, then build on that momentum, because as Leonardo Di Vinci said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
