Over the weekend I watched a short (and funny) video clip about the origin of lemons. The guy in the video made funny faces as he said, “Did you know lemons don’t appear in nature on their own?” And he went on to explain how they’re actually a hybrid made from oranges and citrons. And with an almost crying face, he said “So, that whole lemons to lemonade thing is something we actually do to ourselves.”
It was hilarious. But maybe you had to be there.
But his lemons to lemonade comedy video got me thinking…
I know a lot of people have used that old expression as a motivation tool. When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. But since it’s not “life” that actually hands you lemons…it’s actually us making the lemons in the first place…maybe it’s a good idea to think about this a little differently.
Maybe it’s not a good idea to be so reactive.
And when I say “maybe,” I mean it’s definitely NOT a good idea to be so reactive. Especially when it comes to owning and running a business. Because reactive people always have to work way harder than proactive people. And I’m talking about the down-in-the-trenches kind of work.
But down-in-the-trenches isn’t where you should be. At least not for long. And certainly not if you want a business that works for you instead of the other way around.
So, this week, I’d like you to shake things up a bit.
And consider how you can start making lemons instead of lemonade. Make this the week you get a system going for your business. My RondaReady system can help you plant your own “orchard” much better and faster. And keep in mind, your “orchard” will still need to be fertilized, irrigated, pruned, and sprayed. But with my system, you’ll eventually hire others to do all that.
Anyway, when you’re really ready to be the highly organized CEO of your business, book a free 30 minute call with me. And together we’ll see if my system is right for you.
Because I truly do wanna help you…
