Once you have this list, start tracking the things would like to improve. Realistically speaking, you will not be able to improve everything at one time. Start with one thing on the list and improve that. Then move to another item on the list. It is a good idea to keep a running list of things to improve in your business. Use that list to continually make improvements at your place of business. It is important to never get to a point where you think you do not have to improve.

To the contrary, you must always be improving. In other words, just as you are constantly working and trying to make a profit, you should be constantly trying to improve your business.
