When something is not working, or burnt try again! Try again one more time and another time maybe, depending on how long you have!
If you come to the conclusion that something isn’t working and you know it will not, start from fresh. Reset the button and find a new way of doing it, a new solid strategy, and a pen and note book in hand. Just like in Business, if you aren’t sure that you have a business or figure out that your business is not sustainable, don’t lie to yourself, it is ok to fail and start again. You will be more respected and credible. We all make mistakes… I have not been in business for 30 years, but have gained experience in fails and come backs. I am only 34 years, and I have done a lot in a very little time.
There is no point in being in the denial and playing the arrogant or the connoisseurs. There is no point in lying to people around you, one day they will find out that you are full of …. And what you do is to piss them off and end up lonely. You can only be in the denial for a certain time, after that you done! Cooked! Grilled!
I have friends whom have been in business for years; they have fails and collected themselves again. A business man or woman can only survive if their creations are sustainable. The market is tough and geniuses are waking up, emotions are what driving people into your business, you have to deal with them in a very professional way, increase communication, be fair, delegate, take action and avoid coward attitudes, if you can’t deal with it , please seek help from your peers and mentors.
Tell them that you have failed and they will help you, be honest with yourself. Take a time off and deal with your egos instead of putting your head under the water for long.
Social sites that waste your times and energy, avoid it, your time is precious, go and find a job in the third sectors or call me for a chat, i might be able to assist. Take a time to retrain yourself and your brain, gain a new knowledge. You will do yourself a big favour.
It is time to hit the reset button, defrag the hard drive in the brain, rebuild the emotional and intellectual operating systems. Don’t you think?
