One of the first things you are told as a business owner is that you must have a business plan. I agree. I’m a fan of long-term and right now plans. But that doesn’t guarantee you profits or growth. Many people file that puppy in a drawer or stash it in the depths of their computer. Then it’s out of their mind until January 1 of the following year.
If the plan doesn’t get you immediately buzzing with energy and ready to get into inspired action then it’s not a good plan.
Now, I love to watch business owners get fired up about their projects and planning. But here is where they fall down, they think productivity is the way to make a successful business happen. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Kicking butt on your plan will probably yield you some nice accomplishments. But at the end of the year, you may only be a little richer and not much happier or free.
