“Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.”
~ Conrad Hilton
What’s your biggest business goal?
Whatever it is, you must write it down and look at it every day. Put it on your desk or tape it to your wall so you’ll see it every day.
At least quarterly, give yourself a report card. Are you making progress towards achieving your big goal or not?
For years before winning his first gold medal, Michael Phelps kept a note in his pocket every day that he was going to win a gold medal.
Yes, having your goals written down and looking at them often is critical to achieving them!
The Best Entrepreneurs Do This
Do you know what separates the best entrepreneurs from others?
Here’s the answer: the best entrepreneurs achieve HUGE goals.
It all starts with a “killer” plan <—
Here’s an example: a few years ago, I helped my client Liam Brown develop his plan, back when he was just starting out…
Today, as a result of his TRULY killer plan, his company (Integreon) is the largest BPO firm in the world, with over $100 Million in annual revenues, 2,000 employees, and office locations on 4 continents!
Today’s Question: What was the first brand of frozen pizza to be introduced in the United States?
Previous Question: Which popular snack food was once marketed in flavors including celery and tomato?
Jell-O’s attempts to sell celery and tomato flavors failed, and they soon discontinued those flavors.
But, the brand continues to experiment with new flavors, and keeps the winners and discontinues its unpopular offerings.
Importantly, with experimentation and market research, Jell-O has been able to keep its consumers happy for well over 100 years simply by responding to the changing tastes of each generation. The lesson is simple — give your customers what they want. And try offering new products/variations to meet customer needs; not all of them will work; and that’s ok, because the ones that do will propel you forward.
