The Biggest Problem in Business!

 In How to Be a Pro, Operations & Process, Sales & Marketing, Time Management

Driving up Highway 5 in California, headed for a vacation in Lake Tahoe, it’s 105 degrees outside, and the road is a smoldering 120 degrees when we get a flat! I get out to look the situation over and realize it’s blistering hot, dangerous with trucks speeding by, and I have a problem! I’m in the middle of nowhere and AAA is a long way away. Do I let it go or do I fix the tire? Most likely you’ve been in the same situation.

Fix Your Problems Now.
Like fixing a flat tire on your car, top 10 industry-performing companies fix their problems. They don’t have nagging hiring, employee culture, sales, marketing, and leadership problems because they fix them. Don’t get me wrong, they have problems, just not nagging problems. There is a distinct difference. Businesses and people with continually nagging problems are suffering from a condition—it’s called “being stuck.” Look, if you have not been stuck in your life, your career, or in your business then you are not human—it happens to everyone. How we respond to our problems and feeling stuck is learned behavior. When we get a flat tire, what do we do? We fix it immediately because our ability to travel is crucial to both our enjoyment and our productivity and we feel frustrated.

I hope you win the day!
