Posted by Wayne Fyvie on Oct 16, 2017 8:31:49 AM

I was fortunate enough to share a panel discussion with Stephen Saad, founder and CEO of Aspen Pharmaceuticals. Something that he said resonated with me and I will certainly use it in the future.

When he was posed with the question, “What tips could you share with the audience that have assisted you in reaching your business success?”  He responded by saying that he continuously advises his people to focus on four things a year, only four.  To make sure that those four things get your undivided attention.  If something gets thrown at you that is not going to assist in reaching those four things, leave them alone. If you complete those four things, you will be amazed at what you can achieve.
