Give Me Someone Eager, & I’ll Make Them My Minion

January 4, 2018


Your inability to grasp this one thing will always get you; namely, everything takes time.  Time,   that arbitrary notion the Sumerians conjured up somehow (ancient technology from men before the great flood - but we digress), has devoured the eager Hares of the world.  


In business, the only play is the long game.  Don’t believe us?  It’s okay.  SOYD is used to proving ourselves everyday.  It makes us stronger.  Here’s a few examples as to how eagerness stagnates and kills YOUR business:


  1. A bigger name in the industry takes a liking to you.  They wine and dine you, and you blindly sign a contract.  Unfortunately, that contract gives them a majority interest in your intellectual property.

  2. In your haste to always please everyone, you book two meetings at the same time.  Nothing says professional like cancelling day of.

  3. Your inability to wait encourages your stupid side of the brain to commit your precious time to pro bono work that will take a major part of your work week.  How do you run a business and pay bills working for free?  We’ll wait for the answer.  


Being leveraged and used is part of the growing pains for every business owner.  People say it is just business, but that is just a bunch of crap that justifies the perpetuation of unethical behavior.  We need to come together, and stand for something or we can just keep cutting corners because, well, that is the easiest way to do it.  


This is not about being great, for we all know more than half the workforce is barely mediocre.  Learn the processes, take your time and find your purpose.  HINT: It doesn’t come overnight.  


Stay on your Daily.
