When your best clients drive your practice,
attracting more of them is easy
Learn to get referrals the natural way
and revolutionize your business
Most of what you have heard about getting referrals
is incomplete, outdated, or wrong
Advisors don’t get referrals because they
have no formal plan to attract them

Top 10 Habits to Drop

In a recent article on Morningstar advisor, Allyson Lewis, author of The Seven Minute Difference, describes how to implement better practices by letting go of bad practices. It's worth a read.

I'm dedicated to helping financial advisors consistently do what's important, and this article has lots of good tips for accomplishing exactly that. Included in their practice management list is a reminder of the importance of something that I focus on, having repeatable systems and processes.

Lewis also names other productivity killers including telephones, e-mail, disorganization, unfinished tasks, lack of goals. I will go further than she does on a couple of the recommendations. The article jumps from mission and vision to 90 day goals. I think there's value in one-year, if not three- or five- year goals. David Allen refers to these as the 30,000 and 50,000 foot views of life.

Lewis also recommendations setting aside 30 minute blocks of time unbroken by phones or e-mail to work on projects and tasks.  I prefer the discipline of checking e-mail at specific times of the day, limiting it to three to five times over eight hours.

One item I especially appreciate is the recommendation on the importance of roles. Knowing who should do what, and dedicating time only to those activities that fit within your role, is a crucial time management discipline. With this article as inspiration, I may post some thoughts about roles as well.

Lewis has assembled some valuable tips in a quick read that's worth checking out.
