What to do when you don’t know what to do.
Too often in our business we get so busy that we lose sight of why we’re doing some of the things we’re doing. As we continue to go down that same path we begin to even lose purpose and why we’re doing it.
Have you ever been in a situation where you just simply don’t know what to do?
Too often people think that activity equals results when in reality is activity just equals activity. If we want results we have to focus activity on doing the right thing and in order to do the right thing we must first know what that right thing is.
So next time you simply don’t know what to do, do something different. Stop long enough to start.
In other words just stop yourself and ask yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing, what you want to accomplish and what the best path might be to get there.
It’s at that point that you’re able to refocus on why you do what you do and then determining what your next move is becomes incredibly simple.
Don’t ever get caught up in the thought that if your results are low your activity should increase. Although at times this is the answer it isn’t always the best answer. To put more energy into the wrong path only gets us where we don’t want to be a little faster.
When you don’t know what to do stop to start. That’s the answer to the age-old problem.
You can do this.
