Have you ever watched a game of football where someone got injured in a tackle. Have you every heard the commentary saying that the individual got injured because he had not fully committed to the tackle? The same is true in business.
In this article, we will discuss the importance of getting stuck into your tasks in your business.
Another analogy… When an airplane takes off, it operates on full throttle down the run way because it knows that it has to reach a certain speed, at a certain throttle within a defined period of time. Otherwise we all know what would happen.
Once the airplane takes off, does the Captain immediately ease off? Of course not. He keeps it on full throttle until he has reached an altitude where the flying is easier.
How applicable is that to your business. We see it first hand every day, businesses starting up with great gusto and fan fare, only to crash and burn, or struggle, take off again and then struggle in a peak trough type of formation.
It’s because they did not fully lean into their business. They did not commit for long enough and they ease off too soon. Please do not make the same mistake in your business.
Here are some things that you can do as you prepare to start or launch your new business idea:
Know the level of activity that you will have to do to get it off the ground it in the first place. Obviously know the costs as well as you will need additional cash flow once open.
Establish from speaking to other people who have done what you are doing and achieved success about their timeline for true success.
Establish in your own mind what you will have to do and who you will need to help you in your business. Decide to commit to your business success.
For people who are just leaving employment and into business for the first time, the shock of the intensity of business is too much to bear.
Of course, being your own boss is brilliant, rewarding and in my opinion the only place to be, but it comes at a price and that price multiplies if you do not commit to giving it your all from day one.
How well do you know yourself and your capacity for survival?
Are you ready to experience the ups and downs of business startup?
Would you consider a systemized approach?
