How did your business become so successful? What did you do?
Truly successful people have difficulty sometimes, answering those simple questions.
Success may leave clues but my experience has taught me that the clues are well hidden. The markers of a sustainable, income producing business are developed along a path of consistent performance.
Lots of dominos must be placed on the table for a business to have multi-generational sustainability. The business must do things right every day.
Little things. Every little thing. Business winners pay close attention to small details.
Businesses that are less successful proudly share the folly “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff.” Where does this dribble come from? Do people actually believe that ANYthing is small? If a small problem is ignored today it will certainly become larger in the time it takes to order two-all-beef-patties-special-sauce-lettuce-cheese-pickles-onions-on-a-sesame-seed-bun.
Failing businesses make little mistakes with predictable regularity. It’s usually not one big thing that causes a failure. It’s the pattern that causes the crumble… the consistent pitter-patter of missteps and blundered thinking.
Success can be achieved then, by sustained consistent pattern of doing little things right. My business could make one great quantum leap for consumer-kind and still fail to do enough small stuff with brilliance.
Go big by doing small.
