Many of you are just like me.
You get up each day go to your computer and type.
For some it’s writing, for some it’s code, for some it’s actually design.
The point is that most of us spend a good chunk of the day mostly alone.
You may have kids around and under foot like me, but in my business hours I’m mostly alone all day.
There is no one sitting beside us watching exactly how we run our businesses. No one sees the email we send our clients.
We operate on our own, doing the best that we can.
In See You at the Top Zig Ziglar presents the reader with a bit of a puzzle early on. You can see a similar one below.
Most people will see the small individual squares right away. A few will see the larger square wrapping around all the small ones.
Even fewer will start out seeing all the little squares and variations. They are all obvious once someone starts pointing them out to us though.
..most of us occasionally need someone to point out the obvious, more often, the not so obvious. – See You at the Top
Do you have a ‘someone’ that is going to point out the obvious things in your business that could be done better?
How about a group of someones?
If you don’t you need some, because you’re simply going to miss these things on your own.
Now I’m not saying you need a business partner, but how about a friend that also runs their own business and can meet for a weekly coffee session.
How about a group of friends (mastermind) that meets weekly to talk about how things are going.
As the saying goes in Zelda, it’s dangerous to go it alone.
