I’ve had an idea that could help your business in multiple ways. It’s an unreasonable idea. Yes, I know that sounds weird.
Allow me to explain.
If a product or service is only reasonably good, it’s nothing special. It’s just okay. It’s certainly not good enough to motivate people to buy from you, hire you or tell all their friends about you.
So… this got me thinking
The opposite of reasonable is unreasonable.
What if someone decided to embrace an unreasonable mindset to their business and the services they provide?
I believe it could lead to some significant improvements. Improvements that would encompass their whole business. Here are just a few examples of what an unreasonable approach might look like, which immediately came to mind.
A business owner could choose to:
- Be unreasonably committed to customer service and the total happiness of their clients or customers.
- Show unreasonable persistence when it comes to delivering projects on time and keeping their promises.
- Have an unreasonable attitude to life long learning and developing their potential.
- Set the bar unreasonably high on the quality of work they’re willing to ship. (This will help you) get it right.
- Have an unreasonable passion for helping others to succeed.
Surely, any business operating from that kind of unreasonable mindset, is going to get noticed. They’re going to retain their clients for longer, too. And yes, they’re going to give their clients and their marketplace something interesting to tell their friends about. That’s a lot of important boxes checked, as a natural consequence of being unreasonable.
In short, if being reasonable isn’t working for you, you now have an unreasonable alternative to consider.
