Tips in Leading the Seamless Life™
#19 - Paving The Way To Profitability
The tip this week is also a request. Please decide if you would like to commit
the next 90 days to going for something specifically related to your profitability:
- Do you want more profitability ($$) in your bottom-line for the next
- Would you prefer profitability in the form of more totally free time
on your personal calendar?
If you can align around either, will you take a stand for this and practice
your related "graceful No's" with us for the upcoming three months? We'll also
commit to doing this with you, for ourselves.
Here is some help in getting started.
Profitability: Bottom Line
Decide exactly what profitability looks like for you in your business over
this interim. Begin now to gracefully say "No" to every single opportunity,
request, and suggestion that comes forward (from staff, client, customer,
colleague, and acquaintance) that will not DIRECTLY increase your profitability
within 45 days.
However, in the event it IS something you actually would like to explore,
leave the door open by extending an invitation to "ask me again in 90 days" and
maybe it will be a possibility for you then. Part of the test will be to see
who thinks this through enough to reappear asking and who lets it fall by
Or - you can use one of the many ideas you've recently generated to say "No"
or that we and our readers and contacts have provided in support of your
"graceful No" over the past weeks here on The Sideroad.
