Business Is Not Rocket Science It Is Common Sense

Really Simple Factors For Success:

  • Keep on doing things differently – as soon as you stay the same your competitors will catch up (and you wont be different anymore)
  • Be brave
  • Use common sense – its amazing how many businesses seem to lose this as soon as they reach a certain level of success
  • Listen to customers
    • Keep an eye on the outside world – so many companies never seem to venture out of their ivory tower. I was amazed when I recently spoke to a marketing department of a sizable organisation who told me that they have no remit to talk to customers!!!
    • Don’t become insular
  • You must keep asking questions
    • Internally question everything that you do
    • Externally question all the factors that could impact your business or provide sales opportunities
  • Keep looking – is this where we want to be?
    • You must never lose sight of looking forward long term
    • Equally you must not lose sight of what is going on at the current moment
  • Get things done – procrastination will result in missed opportunities
  • Consider what do we have to achieve rather than what budget have we got
  • Differentiate between leadership and management
    • Leadership – doing the right things (making it all happen)
    • Management – doing things right (priorities)
  • The issue of FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real)
    • Therefore just take positive steps
    • Different people helping you wrestle with the instinctive and the analytical, providing you with a blend to help you fix
    • Don’t be hypocritical
    • Turn commonly held wisdom upside down
