#117 The top priority
Happy Sunday, everyone.
One thing I've been working on for myself and with the leaders of Calm's businesses is prioritization.
There is never a shortage of work to do. And establishing what things need top priority is a force multiplier, because timing is an important factor in determining your outcomes.
For example, if ROI on certain product innovation is clear, you may want to move it up in the list.
On the contrary, you may want to prioritize growth over innovation when you have customer acquisition momentum through a few hot channels.
The key, and what I'm learning more and more, is when to calibrate and recalibrate priorities to maximize results. The best leaders are skilled at prioritization. They deliberately evaluate all the possibilities against the current situation and make a decision.
