Beginner pilots fly “VFR” (Visual Flight Rules), which is simply flying based on what the pilot sees with their eyes. When conditions are good, easy, simple – sunshine, no fog, no storms – they can fly by VFR.
The moment the conditions get trickier – nighttime, fog, storms – the pilot is totally screwed unless they know how to fly by “IFR” (Instrument Flight Rules).
IFR means flying by the gauges on their dashboard in their cockpit. As soon as the pilot gains IFR skills, their ability to handle more challenging / complex situations dramatically improves too.
Without IFR, pilots flying in challenging situations will probably crash and die.
Likewise, businesses operated by Entrepreneurs flying with no Optics of key numbers are at catastrophic risk of dying too.
This includes both Financial Optics, and KPI Optics too.
As Warren Buffett says:
“If you can’t read the scoreboard, then you don’t know the score, and if you don’t know the score, then you can’t tell the winners from the losers.”
It’s time to get Optics.
I can show you, at this year’s 80/20 Summit, how to build the right Scoreboards and Dashboards so you can finally see the truth of what’s happening and run your business much more easily thanks to your newfound clarity.
