"No time doing it right, plenty of time doing over." This phrase struck the chord 🎼 out of me the first time I heard it.
I'm yawning, with tears flowing down my cheek as I share this with you 😪 . The coffee ☕ 3 hours ago wasn't enough... If you are in business for awhile, you must have heard something along the lines of... "80% of sales 💵 is created by 20% of activity 🏃♂️" It's the classic 80/20 rule.
Surprising, my first encounter with this rule wasn't 80/20 🤨
Instead, it was 4/96 😲
Imagine driving a car 🚗, and you just shift your steering wheel ☸️ by 4º.
For the next few meters, it wouldn't have much impact. But if you let it travel another 100KM 🛣️, you will end up in a very different place than you originally planned to.
If you play golf, that small 1º difference will make the ball end up in a place you HATE! 😖
I'm doing that 1º thing right now.
It's so dreadful.
It doesn't produce sales.
It doesn't improve my advertising.
Every cell in my body screams "GO HOME. SLEEP!" 😫
It's the nasty thing call "System & Process" 🖥️ The kind of things that is critical for every business, but somehow, every business doesn't have it.
According to Edward Deming, "94% of all failures are as a result of the system 🤖 or the lack thereof. 6% of the time its people 🧒" Success ✅ can only be contained with structure . You need a system and you need process if you want to succeed and excel in business 🏢
Thanks for reading... Some tools I'm using to run my business:
1. Infusionsoft (CRM)
2. Asana (Tasks Management)
3. Quickbooks (Accounting)
4. Google Drive (Documents Filing)
Now, back to work. Before another business day opens and the business takes over this serenity 🙂
