If you are a CEO, president or business owner who wants to experience more business growth then it’s essential to pay attention to details in order to grow your business.
Here’s an every day example that can be compared to business:
Sometimes when people buy a house it’s because they were so impressed with the landscaping and the gardens around the house.
But till they moved into the house, they really didn’t realize how much time and effort it takes to make a garden lush and beautiful. So the garden isn’t attended to in any particular way. Nor is it weeded, watered, or fertilized on a regular basis.
In no time at all, instead of having the most beautiful house on the block, it quickly becomes just another average house or worse yet, a house that has everyone in the neighborhood talking about how run-down it looks.
There is a great comparison here with business.
If you don’t weed, water and fertilize your business (symbolically, of coarse), your business will wither and die. Which is the complete opposite of business growth.
There is a philosophy that people should stay “in the now”. In business, not only do you need to be “in the now” as a CEO, president or business owner to stay on top of every day business problems, issues and decisions. You also must be paying attention to every single detail in your business for success.
Just because you are making a great income today and the business is prosperous, doesn’t mean the business will continue to be prosperous and you will be making a great income tomorrow.
Starting today, take a few minutes to sit down with a blank piece of paper and think about what problems you have in the business.
Be realistic about what is and is not happening in your business. Think about what you would like to have happen with your business – today, next week, next month, next business quarter, six months from now, next year…
Work on solutions to those business problems. Calculate and strategize about what it will take to solve those business problems and issues.
Do not ignore the smallest problem thinking it will go away. If you do, that small business problem can grow into the 800 pound gorilla that ultimately causes the business serious issues that could be difficult to recover from.
So when you are done reading this, get into action.
Take on those tough, challenging issues with determination and solve them.
Then tomorrow morning, think about your business again, and what issues the business has. Repeat the process. Every business day.
Looking for the problems in your business is not negative thinking. It’s actually quite positive to deal with the bad – so it doesn’t affect the good.
Then see what your garden – and your business – can grow.
To your success!
