These people understand that this is the single best way to make your odds of success better — you can’t hit a home run without first learning how to hit the ball in the first place.
Rather than looking for the next idea that’s going to make them an overnight success, the best entrepreneurs spend their time improving the fundamentals of their business using metrics. By learning how to consistently hit these singles and doubles, these entrepreneurs set themselves up to knock a home run out of the park.
Hand-wavy strategies are overrated. Pick a few core metrics (signups, conversion rates, etc), use tactical techniques (A/B testing, landing pages, better calls-to-action, etc) to make the numbers even better and,most importantly, block off time on a monthly basis to review the previous month’s results and make decisions about the next month.
Little wins on a day to day basis are the best to consistently and methodically grow.
