I’m just going to go right into this one and I’ll keep it short and sweet.
The other day I was talking to the manager of a well-known supermarket, I was sharing some ideas about business and training when he says ‘’that sounds great but my motto is if it aint broke don’t fix it’’. “If it aint broke don’t fix it” from a store manager from a blue chip company showing massive profit loss over the past 5 years.
Now, this isn’t the first time I have heard this expression and it wasn’t the first time it almost made my ears melt with shock. How can you expect something to improve if you are not prepared to change?
If you are in business, never be content with the way things are. Always look ahead, if you reach a goal, set a new one and when you reach that set another.
As soon as you settle and feel comfortable, you stop growing and become reliant on the business you already had. This is a dangerous place to be, what if you lose a client? It could be a massive blow and it’s easily prevented.
Constantly re assess your business plan and always look for ways you can improve your business and client base. If you are consistently growing, building and improving, not only will you protect your future, you will also improve your bank balance.
Remember not all your ideas will work out but when one does all your failures were worth it.
