15 Minutes To Action – The Rockefeller Habits

This week, Nick looks at Verne Harnish’s book, ’Mastering The Rockefeller Habits’, a guide to increasing the value of your business by following steps that have proved successful for some of the world’s largest companies over the past hundred years.


  • Goals are essential, but without action they are insubstantial. A clear vision and the discipline to put routines into action, are the pathways to success.
  • We need to have alignment at the highest levels in our business. Frequent meetings, active participation and constructive debate are the keystones to aligned management.
  • Accountability is crucial. A Function Accountability Chart can help you to assign tasks, and to ensure that the right people are taking care of them at the right time. 
  • Treat your reporting of customer data as importantly as you do your financial data. Frequent accurate analysis will give you greater insight into your direction.


’The core principles of success don’t really change’

‘Goals without routines are wishes, and routines without goals are aimless’

‘You can never communicate enough!’

‘Core values need to become behaviours’

Mastering The Rockefeller Habits by Verne Harnish


My name is Nick Bradley. I’m an entrepreneur, author, speaker and investor. My background is in growing and scaling VC and Private Equity backed businesses.

Having successfully built, bought and sold a number of companies, and removed myself from day-to-day operations, my focus now is on helping entrepreneurs get to where they want to be, in business and in life. As well as investing in growth businesses and backing turnarounds – with the ultimate aim of creating value from significant capital events.

I’m passionate about personal and professional development – showing up and being the best version of myself … every day.

My bigger vision is to help bring entrepreneurial skills, experience and mindset to people in developing nations – so they can follow their dreams, live life more on their terms – utilising entrepreneurship as a global force for good.
