Have you ever put up with something or someone out of convenience? It’s human nature to want to do what’s easy, but in business this can be DEADLY!
When The Adventure Stalls
Think of your booklet publishing business like an adventure movie. At times things will go extremely well and you’ll feel like cheering. Other times you will be on the edge of your seat. But, what if that adventure movie just didn’t go anywhere? What if it was dull? What if there were no real adventure at all? You probably would feel that your money was wasted on that movie ticket.
Your booklet adventure is the same way. Sometimes things are all working out great and you feel like you’re on top of the world. Other times you find yourself anticipating something big. But, if everything stalls and you allow it to stay that way, you’ve wasted your time and efforts up to this point. You need to do whatever it takes to get things moving in the right direction again.
It’s Not Their Dream
The key word in the above paragraph is YOU. This is YOUR booklet adventure. YOU are the one in charge. YOU are the one with the dream and vision of where you want to go. Nobody else can do it for you because it’s not their dream, it’s yours.
Sometimes in order to reach your goals you have to be willing to get your hands dirty or do the difficult thing instead of the easy thing – like giving someone the boot or changing the way you have always done something. I have had to do this myself. There were times in the past when people I had hired to do a job never met their deadlines. A one time emergency from an otherwise dedicated worker I could overlook. But when someone gives me excuse after excuse, or worse – doesn’t communicate at all, it’s time to give them the boot!
You Don’t Have Forever
This is your dream. Nobody else will ever care about it as much as you do. And nobody but you can make it happen. Don’t put up with methods that don’t work. If something isn’t working, change it now! The sooner you make that change the sooner you’ll find something that does work, or that works better.
The same goes for anyone you hire to do a job for you – even if it’s a family member and you are not paying them for their help. You don’t have forever. You can’t put your life and your business on hold to accomodate someone else. You need to keep your booklet adventure on track and moving forward, gaining momentum and building both equity and income. The only way you can do that is with dedicated, motivated people.
If your business has stalled or become sluggish, take a look at your methods for getting things done and ask yourself if there is a better way of doing things. And, take a look at the people who are helping you and ask yourself if they are an asset to you or a liability. Once you answer those questions, you’ll know what you need to do!
