I’m sure you’ve heard commercials or creative directors or even motivational speakers use the phrase: less is more. Right? And I know you catch their drift. And maybe they make a good point. But I prefer to say more is not always better. And I believe I can confidently say Abraham Lincoln would agree with me.
Honest Abe was the perfect example of how more is not always better.
And the 16th President came up in my mind because I just saw where yesterday (November 19) was the 157th anniversary of his famous Gettysburg Address.
I’m sure you recall it’s the speech President Lincoln gave that started with, “Four score and seven years ago…” And it was only 271 words long. But something you might not know is Mr. Lincoln’s speech was not actually billed as the Gettysburg Address in the program organized for that day.
There was actually what they called an “Oration” billed as “The Battles of Gettysburg.” It was 13,607 words. And it was given by Edward Everett, a well-known politician, and lasted about two hours. Most accounts say it was a great speech. And just in case you’re curious, Lincoln’s speech lasted about two minutes.
Now, I’ll bet you don’t even know how Mr. Everett’s speech started. Much less what it was about. Right? But many people remember Lincoln’s speech. Or they at least recognize it when someone starts to recite it.
OK, maybe none of this means a darn thing to you. And maybe you wonder why I’d even bring it up. Especially since my business is about business and not politics. But I think there’s a lesson in this.
The more precise and concise your information, the less you need of it.
And business owners who don’t grab onto that concept almost always end up chasing loads of information. From lots of sources. And almost always from too many different kinds of sources. Such a waste of time!
That’s why I designed my RondaReady system with a one-of-a-kind combo of business coach and CRM system in one place. And you can get it for less than the cost of most business coaches who don’t include a CRM…or even less than most CRM’s that don’t include a business coach.
So, when you’re really ready to be the highly organized CEO of your business, get your own R.O.N.D.A.
Because I truly do wanna help you…
