Decisions, decisions, decisions. As business owners, we make them all the time. The question is, just how much thought do you put into making those decisions? When making business decisions, do you consider the long-term effect each one will have on your business? Do you consider how it will effect your clients? Will that decision really add value and benefit?
When making business decisions, always consider two things.
- Will it move my business forward? and
- Will it bring value and benefit to my clients?
You might also want to consider a third thing. Will this decision still maintain the boundaries between my business and personal life?
Business decisions … right or wrong, good or bad, can impact the health and prosperity of your business for many years down the road. They can be life or death to your business, so carefully considering whether or not each decision will move your business forward and bring value and benefit to your clients, all while keeping within the boundaries you’ve set is a smart move to make.
We are bombarded with shiny objects and “squirrel” moments every day. Buy this, buy that. Do this, do that. “If you don’t suck into this next greatest class or system in the next 10 hours you’ll miss out completely!” You know what I mean.Don't let the answer to your next business decision be a 'Squirrel moment!'Click To Tweet
Be honest with yourself. If you can’t say yes to the 3 questions above, is whatever you are considering really going to benefit your business or your clients or your family? Probably not. So if it’s not going to accomplish these 3 things, why in the world would you want to say yes?
Think before you decide. Don’t worry about the pressure from others, and certainly don’t be sucked into the need to make a decision on the spur of the moment or in a short span of time because you’ll miss out on such a great deal. If the deal is that great … if the product or service or whatever it is really is that great, there will be another opportunity down the line when you can respond with a yes while still saying yes to these 3 important questions.
