MEMO TO MYSELF: Do things which make money
By definition, successful business owners get this. (I’m defining successful to mean those who have a business from which they make an honest living.)
Anything less is failure.
Don’t take this personally; you can be failing forward in the sense of taking action on your goals and figuring things out from experience.
I like to call this course-corrective feedback. (And yes, the truth can hurt, sometimes.)
After reading Tim’s article I was struck by how brainwashed I was when in the employee mindset. (As a teacher, I could write a book on this topic. haha!)
Rarely did I question whether my daily activities were making money because that was something for my managers and the front office sales folks and rainmakers to figure out.
Silly me. Now I’m all of those people in one.
So, I’ll ask the question again:
Are you doing things which make money?
END OF MEMO.
PS: If you’re not in business to make money, ignore this post.
