P90X is one of those crazy workout videos that has become famous, because it works. If you search the web, you can find numerous testimonies of how P90X has transformed their bodies. After 90 days of intense daily workouts, the participants are more fit, trim, muscular, and defined. It isn’t an easy workout. You are exhausted. But it works. Tony Horton, the creator of the workout, personally leads people through the workouts on the video.
I am an on again and off again P90X participant. I do the workout for a few days and then take a few days off. Since it is a video, I get to a point where I can quote what Tony Horton says in each workout. The weight lifting workouts require the participants to “write it down”. The idea is to track what you have done so you know what you have to improve.
“How do you know what to do, if you don’t know what you did?”
Businesses also sit in a similar position. While they may not be fighting to make their bodies more fit, trim, and defined; they are fighting to have their businesses be more financial stable, efficient, mission focused, and overall successful. As with P90X, the best way to start down that trail is to start tracking. Track how much you spend, how long it takes to complete tasks, quality features, or whatever benchmarks you are looking to grow in. Then evaluate and push yourself to improve. It may not be easy to keep track of all this but it works.
If the tracking seems like too much, the nice advantage you can harness is to outsource some help. Hire an outsourced bookkeeper, purchase software, or hire a project manager / office assistant.
