"The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals" is written by Chris McChesney, Sean Covey and Jim Huling, and published by Free Press.

Initiatives often die in small businesses, either with a loud crash or a slow suffocation. Sometimes entrepreneurs spend so much energy keeping the day-to-day going that they lack the mental space to devote to building out their strategies.

The 4 Disciplines of Execution, according to this book, are repeatable, proven concepts to help business owners focus on strategic priorities.

These disciplines -- not theories -- are a set of practices and include:

1. Focus on the wildly important
2. Act on the lead measures
3. Keep a compelling scoreboard
4. Create a cadence of accountability
