When you’re already working hard to grow your business, and it’s not getting the results you need, working increasingly harder is never the answer.
Over the years, I’ve worked with some amazingly successful people. People who went from zero to enormous financial wealth. None of them work any harder than the average business owner.
They work differently.
They work smarter. Here are lots of great examples.
They work effectively.
But they don’t work harder.
The most successful business owners also tend to work fewer hours, than struggling business owners. When a business isn’t developing the way you want it to, the tendency is to try and compensate by working crazy hours. If you’ve tried this for any period of time, you’ll know it doesn’t work.
At best you’ll spin your wheels, your health will suffer and you can end up with relationship problems, because those closest to you won’t see you enough.
If your current approach is not growing your business, don’t work harder. Find out what needs to be done and do it.
Work smarter. Work differently. Work effectively.
