You’ve all heard the expression, do the things and you’ll get the results.
That’s all well and good, but there’s two fundamental problems with this and I want to share them with you.
I completely agree with this concept and at the same time I completely disagree.
You see there are a few problems with this. And if you don’t changes these you will keep making the same mistakes.
The first one is if you’re doing the wrong things. And the reality is most businesses are doing the wrong things. It doesn’t matter how many times you do it. If it’s the wrong thing, it’s not going to get you the right result. We see this with the way business owners network. They do the wrong things over and over again expecting different results. Albert Einstein called this the definition of insanity. Business owners have the right intent, but completely the wrong habits.
You will have heard, maybe even used the expression: Practise makes Perfect
Well I don’t agree with this. I believe: Practise makes Permanent
It’s the doing the same things over and over again and expecting a different result. The bottom line is that if you aren’t doing the right things they won’t get you the results you want.
Doing the things is great, but you need to do the right things.
Next you need to do the right things the right way. It’s like a sprinter doing the right things of training each day, running, weight training, eating well. But if he doesn’t have a Coach tweaking the finer movements, setting the pace, adjusting as they train, then the sprinter won’t get the results they want.
So, yes you can do the right things the wrong way.
If you do this you won’t get the right results.
So you need to: Do the right things, the right way.
It may not sound as catchy or as flash, but it’s the truth.
You need to do the right things the right way in your networking, in your business and in your life.
Don’t waste your time doing the wrong things or doing the right things the wrong way.
