Over the years I have written several posts on the power of focus. (Heck there is a category for it on the blog page). Today’s example is Chili’s which is reducing its menu by 40 items from 125 to 75 because “Over the years, like many bar and grill chains, Chili’s chased consumer trends, expanded the menu and tried to be all things to all guests, therefore compromising execution and resulting in a fuzzy food reputation,” Chili’s said in a statement.
Focus brings power. As our former team member, David Palmer was wont to say, “There is no business that can’t improve its performance by narrowing its focus.” In n Out Burger with its original menu outperforms McDonald’s with its over-bloated menu (which it is reducing).
Reread some of my earlier posts on this topic and then ask yourself, where should you be focused.
