Transcript

We like to choose three big rocks per quarter and those are you know projects initiatives something that you want to get done and the way we look at it is a little different than a lot of people do so. The big rock has to be something that you can accomplish instead of maybe a number goal so a lot of companies they’ll say okay our you know goal for this quarter is to get 500 more customers.

We don’t say we want to get 500 more customers we say we want to increase the frequency of blogging from once a week to twice a week because that’s something that we can control we take that kind of outcome of like. Okay I want to get 500 customers and reverse engineer and to some initiatives that we think are going to help us get those 500 customers so that makes it really easy you know the problem with having these outcome type of goals like 500 customers is at the end of the quarter if you know maybe you got there maybe you didn’t but if you didn’t get there.

It’s like you don’t really have that much you know did you do everything right and it just didn’t work out like how do you take what happened where if you’re totally in control of each your big rocks you either got it done or you didn’t you know we don’t know how  things are going to turn out but we can do our best to take a guess of what will work and then do it and see what happens.
