Think Daily for Businesspeople Messages
Being a great businessperson means you can predict what will happen when your organization carries out a particular action. You know how your customers and employees will respond, and what effect it will have on your KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators) and financial statement.
Pay attention to what actions are being taken (even things you normally don’t see) and how stakeholders are responding. When you accumulate this kind of experience, you can do less experimenting and trial, and get to action that works faster because you have the ability to predict.
Because no one can force anyone to act contrary to their own best interest, in a free market everyone must voluntarily cooperate with others if they want to satisfy their own personal needs the fastest and easiest way possible.
Indeed, we see people who don’t even like each other cooperating in a free marketplace.
The free market is the greatest miracle of social cooperation ever conceived of in human society.
I have a guy who just won’t pay me when we did nothing wrong. I have another guy who won’t return my phone calls. I have another guy who said he’d do something he never did and now says I owe him.
When you have a business you have a net that catches all kinds of fish – even ones you don’t want. Try to work things out, but when you see that you aren’t dealing with someone who is reasonable and honorable, let them go – even if they owe you. It’s not worth the emotional energy or time to chase them or pursue justice. Let them out, let them off, let them go, and don’t carry the emotional baggage from it.
Free yourself to be productive and happy.
