Nilsson Schmilsson. If you’re a baby boomer, that probably makes sense to you. But for everybody else, I’ll just go ahead and explain. That’s actually the title to an album from 1971 by Harry Nilsson. And one of the hits was called “Without You.” It’s a very sad-sounding breakup song. Here are the lyrics to the first verse.
“No, I can’t forget this evening
Or your face as you were leaving
But I guess that’s just the way the story goes
You always smile but in your eyes your sorrow shows
Yes, it shows”
Then, there’s another verse that sounds just as sad. And then the chorus adds…
“I can’t live, if living is without you.”
And you’ve gotta hear Nilsson sing it. Because his voice adds that deep sadness that makes you lean in and keep listening.
No, I haven’t decided to take on a career as a music reviewer. I just heard that song recently. And you know how I am. I tend to relate things like that to business. So, I started thinking about you business owners. And I wondered if you believe your business “can’t live if living is without you.”
Let’s do a little three question test to see if that’s true.
- Do you believe every part of your business requires YOU?
- Do you think there’s no part of your business that someone else could do better?
- And does it seem like you can never “get away” from your business?
If you answered yes to any (or all) of those questions, Nilsson might actually be singing your song.
Believe me, I can relate. And I understand how you’d rather not give up any part of your business. After all, it’s your baby. And your dream. Right? And if it’s working just the way you always dreamed, great. Keep doing what you’re doing. And if you’re making all the money you need or want, then stop reading this.
You’re already on the right track for YOU.
But if you’d like to kick things up a notch (or several notches), you might already realize how tough it is to do it alone. And, in that case, you gotta decide whether you’d like to be involved or essential.
Essential translates to hands-on. And I mean basically every business hour of every business day. For small business owners that’s usually at least six or seven days a week. If that’s your preference, go for it.
On the other hand, if you’d like a more hands-free business, then that means you’ll be involved. But not essential to every hour of every day. And that requires automation and delegation. And that’s where my RondaReady System really shines.
