Business Thought Process: The 4Q1E Way (Part 5)

Technologies and methodologies evolve and change, but solid foundations and principles tend to remain constant in business.

So with that in mind over the next few weeks, I'm gonna ask you 4 Questions. And give you 1 Exclamation that will hopefully get you thinking about the foundations and principles needed to create a business, solidify your current business, or enhance the speed of your growing business.

Question 1: Where are you now?
Question 2: What is next?
Question 3: What are your assets and resources?


That's really what it boils down to.

You know where you are.

You've identified what's next.

You know what you've got to work with.

And you know what to do to get where you want to go.

So go there!

Set some goals and work on them until you A) get where you are going or B) get to a dead-end - in which case you need to reset, and adjust your goals. Failure is not final unless you choose to stop moving forward.

More than just setting goals... Set "refuse to lose" goals on a daily basis.

A "refuse to lose goal" is something that you are going to make sure happens no matter what happens during the day. It's the kind of goal that you have to accomplish before you end your day (whether that day ends when you go home or when you go to bed is up to you).

Sometimes those goals are as simple as "forcing" yourself to call on 3 prospects every day before 5pm. Sometimes those goals are more complex like writing a proposal for a project even if it takes you until 3 in the morning to finish it.

You don't HAVE TO do anything that has been suggested. But if the things you WANT TO HAVE, are important enough, you will WANT TO DO whatever is necessary to make it happen.
