In the cut-throat world of business, results are everything. You can do everything right, but it only really matters if you make a profit. That’s just how things are. Don’t hate the player. But don’t hate the game either.
You wanna succeed? Play smart and use these strategies to SCORE a win for your team.
For the sake of symmetry, let’s start this acronym with another acronym. Are you familiar with the KISS rule? It means “keep it simple, stupid.” A bit harsh, I know, but sometimes you have to be brutally honest to get your point across. By keeping it simple, you are able to streamline your operations and minimize risk. The fewer moving parts you have in your business, the less you have to worry about.
That’s not to say that scaling upwards is a bad thing. You just have to do it in a way that makes logistical sense for you and your team.
Fact: winners win. And they do so consistently. A true champion defends their belt and keeps it. Remember, luck runs out, but consistency stays with you. So if you want to succeed, make sure to foster habits that benefit your business. Be disciplined and don’t rely too much on external factors such as situation or inspiration.
Do it right. Do it well. Do it often.
When you go against your true nature, you risk losing yourself. In business, you also risk losing money. Why is that, you ask?
Because when your strategies are artificial, meaning they aren’t true to your brand’s mission and vision, they will come off as fake or disingenuous. And let me tell you, people can smell B.S. a mile away.
So be authentic and true to your brand. It’s not only easier to do but more profitable as well.
Winners make winning look easy. That’s because, for them, it usually is. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not discounting the importance of effort. But if your strategy is taking monumental effort for you and your team and it’s still not producing results, then you need a new strategy. You can’t rely on one-offs to bring you to the top. As I mentioned previously, consistency is key.
The best tactics work and they work more often than not. If your strategy can’t replicate good results, then you need a new one.
This one is the most obvious among the five. Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but do you know the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing and expecting different results. Now, I would argue that describes futility more than insanity, but what do I know?
The point is, you shouldn’t keep employing a strategy that has historically not given you any wins.
You have to move on and find something better. And no, I’m not talking about your ex.
