The title of the book gave this one away. “Hey, stupid. Plan your next 5 moves! Just do that!”

That is the main gist. The author has several colorful stories of how he learned this lesson. I don’t have a lot of common ground with his lifestyle or desires. But the simple concept gave me a lot of clarity.

Plan the next most impactful 5 moves. Focus on that and only that until they are achieved. The point of those moves is to move towards a goal. It is working ON your business instead of IN your business.

I can get really bogged down trying to do too many things at once. I read this book or go to that conference and have dozens of efforts and improvements I am trying to pursue at the same time. What winds up actually happening is progress is slow overall, several stall out, and I feel stretched really thin.

Committing to only 5 moves gives clarity and focus.

That doesn’t mean I abandon my routine responsibilities. But my focus working on my business is very narrow and intentional. 

What are the 5 most impactful moves you can make to move you closer to your goals?

Focus on those.

Achieve them.

Then come up with the next 5 to focus on.

One thought on “Your Next 5 Moves

  1. I am in the same boat. Many “want to do” projects or ideas that seem always out of reach, or afraid if I focus my time other daily routines would suffer. I really like the idea of selecting 5 most important and focusing on improving. Great summary!
