THE ROAD TO EXPONENTIAL GROWTH
If you want your business to get ahead and experience exponential growth at some point, you only need to do one thing…Something! But there is a catch, you need to do something that adds value to your business every single day and only then will you be certain to get ahead. It doesn’t have to be a big thing, you don’t need to land the multi-million dollar contract, or send out fliers about your products on a daily basis. Just do one small thing every single day, without fail, and you’ll see results.
BUT I WANT RESULTS NOW!
Doesn’t work that way…sorry. Keep in mind this is a snowball effect, and at first it won’t seem like your getting anywhere, then one day you’ll realize you have a snowball bigger than a house and more business than you know what to do with. It’s the compounding effect of all your daily efforts that will lead to that explosive, exponential growth you want, no way around it.
You may only be moving your business ahead a fraction of an inch at a time, but over time those inches add up to feet, and the feet to yards, and the yards to miles. The idea here is to not get discouraged early on when growth is slow, and all your daily work is hardly perceptible in the big picture. The key is to keep doing something so that you can one day enjoy the compounded effect of all your hard work. A good exercise is to brainstorm all the things you can do to add value to your business that would take less than 10 minutes of your time.
