Thinking Is Free
The following passage is from a book called “Make Your Small Business Thrive” by Kevin Gilbert.
“Thinking is free, so do it more often. It is amazing the amount of people who do things without knowing the reason why. Remove yourself from the hurley burley of day to day life, even for an hour, and think. Too many people pre judge whether something is going to work or not, particularly if they have tried it before and it wasn’t successful. Don’t fall into this trap.Try things and if they don’t work, try something else. The next “big thing” may be something small. After all, little developments can make a big difference and they are a lot less scary to embark on. So try a lot of little things. Don’t overcomplicate what you do or how you explain it to people. Keep it simple but not simplistic. If something didn’t work then try again. The circumstances may well have changed. Very few “overnight successes” get it right first time.”
So next time you don’t want to try something because it may not have worked before, even if it is as small as re-implementing a new system that did not take off in your business at first, stop and think again. There is always a way to re-vamp old ideas. There are not too many things in life for free, but thinking happens to be one of them.
