Better Business Through Visual Video Marketing

Problem solving strategy

We all know the problems, but we spend way too much time talking about them and not enough about how to solve them.  Smart businessmen talk solutions.

Know what’s wrong, and learn to fix it.  Use every available moment to find a better way, a cheaper way, or a more profitable way to do whatever needs to be done.  Wake up thinking of solutions, and go to bed dreaming of solutions.

Problems get solved THAT way!

Peril of Procrastination

In business, whatever “needs” to be done should be finished NOW.  Success will not wait for you, so you must be ready whenever opportunity crosses your path.  You will never know what might have been missed by even a slight delay in action.

Consider what Donald Robert Perry Marquis [1878-1937] said, “…procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.”

…or Edward Young [1683-1765],– “Be wise today; ’tis madness to defer.”   And,..”Procrastination is the thief of time.”

Ponder those words when you go to work tomorrow.

Starting the Year Off Right

Now is the time to make plans, adjustments, and goals for 2017.  These must be specific in nature, and be the result of assessments of last year’s results (or lack thereof).  It is often helpful if you include someone close to your business for collaboration, but if you are the owner, — YOU must determine your company’s direction for this upcoming year.

These items you identify must be written down and referred to daily.  There needs to be an urgency to your work, and a fierce determination to your goals.  The more dedicated you become to your plans for development,– the more successful your efforts will become.  This has to be a concerted effort to elevate your attitude towards greater accomplishments.  This will automatically transfer to your work force.

You may consider a motto for your company.  I did long ago.  Mine is; Think BIG, and Have Fun.

Best wishes for a fun and prosperous 2017.
