Let’s face it! Sometimes our best made plans just don’t come to fruition. Rather than waste valuable time and energy trying to force your plan to work, you may need to renegotiate — with yourself.
As entrepreneurs we pride ourselves on getting things done. But, when getting things done begins to feels more like you’re pushing your head through a very tiny knothole in a fence, its time for drastic measures.
Even though a commitment made to oneself does not constitute a legal and binding agreement, the depth of the promises you make to yourself would say otherwise. Deeply held commitments, especially when it comes to business tactics that aren’t working, only serve to bottleneck your growth
You renegotiate your mortgage rate, the terms of agreement with a provider, who’s going to carry out the trash…why not put your negotiation skills to work to keep things moving in your business.
Nothing is engraved in granite (unless you’re talking about that geeky plaque you won in 4th grade for the science award). Being you were the one who set the parameters of your initial commitment, you also are the one who can negotiate new terms — with yourself.
What’s not working as well as you would like in your business? Do you need to have a “good talkin’ to”? Go face-to-face with yourself — and don’t back down until you get what you want.
