Obviously the difference between extraordinary and ordinary is the suffix word “extra.” In business, “extra” can be simple things and yet provide great value especially for the customers. Look at Mang Inasal, it becomes a fast-growing restaurant chain for arguably two reasons – its Bacolod style grilled chicken and unlimited extra rice. Successful businessmen also know that exerting extra efforts can be revolutionary not only for their companies, but for themselves.
Have Smarter Plans. Every New Year, millions of people around the globe compose their own resolutions that don’t work eventually. Why? Because most resolutions appear like wishful thinking and not clear steps to achieve change. American entrepreneur, motivational speaker and author Jim Rohn said “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” So it’s good to plan or to have resolutions, just make them clearer and state their purpose for your business development.
Be Faster Worker – Quality should always be your priority, but don’t make it an excuse in being late in your deadlines. If you boost your sense of urgency, there’s also strong possibility that you can achieve more success in no time. Furthermore, lack of urgency pushes away your creativity, passion, and the attention of your customers in your business. Do you know what the international speaker and best- selling author Richie Norton said about urgency? “Urgency means paying the details the attention they deserve, with the respect they deserve, without delay.”
Produce Firmer Result. If perfection is impossible now, then you should at least provide better service than before. How? Make current issues obsolete ones because you already resolve them one by one. In addition to this, never neglect the ideas of seeking out different strategies to get both solutions and innovations for your business. The idea is to become firm as in solidly reliable for your clients’ satisfaction.
“Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship. The act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth,” a famous quote of writer, professor, and management consultant Peter Drucker.
