Money likes speed.
I guarantee that you are capable of getting things done faster than you think. When you last went to a MOBE live event, how fast did you implement what you learned? Did you take notes and implement the following week after you got home?
Sometimes, we’ll get an attendee who learns a new technique in one of the sessions and proceeds to implement it during the break.
Those fast action takers are the ones who will become wealthy.
In this video, I share my thoughts about speed of execution in business.
SLOW OR FAST PROGRESS?
Sometimes, business owners will come to me for advice. They’ve just started to do very well in their business, sales are picking up, and they become slighly nervous. They wonder if things are moving too fast and whether they should step back and re-assess before a disaster happens.
I can’t help but find this a difficult question to answer, because my approach to business is the exact opposite.
When things are moving slowly in my business, I get frustrated. If I don’t see growth from month to month, I start thinking of what needs to be done to change that.
I am always looking for ways to get things moving faster. If someone on the team is moving too slowly, I will reach out and request them to pick up pace, or I’ll even consider hiring better talent who share my love of speed in business.
This is not to say that things don’t go wrong when moving fast. They do, and I agree that disasters are more likely to happen when moving fast than when moving slow.
But you can always respond and adjust to the small challenges and the bigger ones. I would rather have things move fast, with challenges to respond to, than having no challenges to deal with but things not moving along at all.
EMBRACE MOVING FAST
I think you need to embrace moving fast, and embrace chaos. Many people have the natural instinct to avoid chaos, and I can understand why.
As an employee, you like to have certainty and know what you have to do. You have set hours, set responsibilities, and you work in a controlled environment. Things are predictable.
If you’re going to be an entrepreneur, you have to be prepared for the opposite. Instead of doing everything in your power to avoid disasters happening, embrace them and have the faith that you’ll be able to overcome them and walk away from them stronger.
