There are so many aspects to business…
It can be overwhelming however it doesn’t have to be.
Today I’d like to shine a light on this.
The reason is, it’s key to get present to what you are naturally great at (and honour yourself for those skills and talents).
How will you know?
Certain aspects will come more easy to you than others.
You personally don’t have to be a master at everything. What is handy is to have a deep enough understanding of
1. What you’re achieving
2. What outcomes you need
This is where reverse engineering comes in.
You can ask, hire, appoint, delegate the pieces to others who are much better at that particular aspect than you.
Little pieces of work. Little projects. To move forward.
▫️If you’re great at relationships? Honour that
▫️If you’re great at creative, honour that
▫️If you’re great at execution honour that
▫️If you’re great at problem solving honour that
Then, from a place of KNOWING what you’re good at, you can match what the business needs and then begin piecing together the other parts you need to get you where you’re headed.
I’m so big on this because of the screw ups in my own business life I’ve made.
▫️ wasted time on the wrong people
▫️selected the wrong people
▫️demanded too much of others in unreasonable ways
▫️wasted tens of thousands on consultants unnecessarily
▫️worked in my business too much (workaholic)
▫️got my sense of identity from my business
▫️took on the wrong customers
▫️fought with my business partners
▫️let our communication differences interrupt our dreams and goals
▫️stayed in the weeds and details way too much instead of being strategic
▫️ undervalued my own skill talent and impact
▫️failed to keep an eye on costs
▫️made and lost more money than I want to think about because it’s painful
However, I kept going.
And the reasons have a lot to do with this phrase…
‘If it was EASY – EVERYONE would be doing it’
So that’s the truth. Being a high performer in business isn’t easy. Running and owning a business isn’t easy.
But it’s awesome when it works well!
