Choose Just ONE Metric

In the words of the Highlander, “There can only be one” or from Jack Palance’s character in City Slickers, “Just one thing. You stick to that and the rest don’t mean —-.”

The point is if you give your team too many metrics to chase or different metrics for different folks , everybody isn’t pulling in the same direction. So, just pick one thing for your entire team to focus on: Profit $, Acquiring New Customers, Revenue, whatever, but make sure there is no question in your organization what it is and everybody is doing everything they can to head toward that goal.

Just One Thing!!
