What’s in your business action plan?
I spent a little extra time going over a business action plan for a client of mine. Not because she hasn’t already laid out plans for her business. But because she was on a bit of a rant about other people and their lack of a good work ethic. It started out innocently enough. But one story lead to another and another. And pretty soon it was clear…she was just venting. Here’s why that’s not good…
Venting tends to focus on feelings. In other words, after venting about one problem and getting it off your chest, you might get sort of a good feeling of relief. And your subconscious wants that feeling to continue. So, you vent another story…which leads to another. And so on. That might feel good in the short term, but…
Complaining and venting is not a good business action plan.
When you complain too much I think you’ll discover your mind shuts down on answers and solutions. Instead it focuses on problems. And focusing on problems creates a vicious cycle. The more you talk about problems, the more problems you can find. Like a friend of mind says, “It’s always easier to solve other people’s problems.” But solving their problems won’t make your business even one more dime.
It’s only when you acknowledge where YOU need to take action that helps YOUR business.
