“An organization becomes bewildered rather than energized when it’s asked to do too much at once.”
~Michael Hammer & James Champy
I recently read an interesting story about a very successful entrepreneur.
When he was 7 years old, he sold his Christmas presents to his brothers to make money.
By the time he was 8, he got smarter….he rented his Christmas presents to his brothers for a month. He made the same amount of money and got to keep his presents.
Now I’m not saying you should sell or rent the holiday presents you receive.
But I am saying that successful entrepreneurs think differently than the average person. They think about how they can do more with less. They think about how they can leverage their assets. They think creatively all the time. And, importantly, they love thinking creatively. And the more they do it, the better they get at it.
Not all of us had this entrepreneurial creativity at age 7. That’s fine. But make sure you start tapping into it now. And make it part of your daily routine. So the next year can be your most successful year yet!
So, as the holiday season is upon us, I want you to think about how you can be more creative in your thinking and accomplish more with less.
Do you have the right plan?
The right strategic plan for your business includes:
1) the best strategy to follow
2) a written roadmap so there’s no confusion as to what your team needs to accomplish and when
In no time, you’ll have a strong plan to follow so your company wins.
Why play the game of entrepreneurship if you’re not going to win?

Rioting tailors–fearing they’d be put out of work–broke into the factory and destroyed the machines.
