When you convince yourself that you are so busy, you won’t focus on the most important task at hand, such as working on your business growth action plan.
Is the thought “I’m so busy” killing your sales? If you think not, then you might want to read on.
Have you ever thought the following when sales were really, really good:
If you have had any of these thoughts, think again. Because it won’t be long before you will not have any sales at all. Your financial bank account will be quickly dwindling along with your emotional one.
At least once a week, when speaking with small business owners, I hear the “I’m so busy” rationale to justify current behaviors. This rationale is really a self-fulfilling prophecy for disaster.
When you convince yourself that you are so busy, you won’t focus on the most important task at hand such as working your business growth action plan.
The activity of the moment will keep you in a very reactive state instead of a proactive one.
New sales will plummet and you will enter the sales throes of quiet desperation. Have you ever been there? How did that feel and, more importantly, did you like it?
To avoid this disastrous self-fulfilling prophecy means that you must be committed to taking care of those daily actions that support all of your sales.
