There comes a time when business owners, entrepreneurs, self-employed professionals, and commissioned sales people reach a point of exhaustion and exasperation with all the time they spend networking for business without getting the results they really desire.

Networking can become an overwhelming part of the calendar. They realize that after investing so much time at networking breakfasts, lunches, mixers, dinners, meetings, and one to one coffee dates, it takes a lot of effort to meet the right people who will lead them to the business they want. Relationships that lead to referrals, that’s the key. It’s as simple as that. But how do you find the right people to build relationships with?

I am a big fan of Excel, having been blown away when I first saw the power of Visicalc on an Apple. Unfortunately the analytical power of Excel sometimes leads us to depend too much on the forecasts we develop with it. We live in a world full of uncertainty, both technology and nature create unexpected disruptions that can make the past very poor predictors of the future.

Maintaining momentum toward your long term goals in such a world requires a strategic rhythm of observing the competitive landscape and re-orienting when necessary. Hard work in the wrong direction will not get you to your long term goals. The sooner you make a course correction the easier it will be to achieve those goals.

Keeping an eye on where you are going while dealing with the day to day tactical issues of running a business requires a systematic approach. The system must include at least 3 things: Rhythm -A regularly scheduled time to focus on the strategy of achieving your long term goals. Data - Information on the current state of your business and your market.
