It’s important to keep an open mind as you read, hear, or otherwise experience ideas that can help you. Try not to judge them or cast them aside too quickly because they don’t sound good, they’re not part of your personality or makeup, or because you may have heard them before.
Action Makes The Difference
Instead, consider these courses of action:
If you’ve heard an idea before, say to yourself, “Yes, I’ve heard that before, but am I using it?” If not, “Why not?”
If you are currently using the idea, ask yourself, “How effective am I at using it? How can I ‘plus’, or improve on it to make it even more effective for me and my business?”
Next, ask yourself this question: “What will I do as a result of what I’ve learned?”
Remember, it’s not what you know – it’s what you do that counts. Ideas are powerful. And good ideas are really important for any business. They’re what keeps your interest up and your business fresh and alive and growing. And put into action, good ideas can make a huge difference in the way you do business, the results you realize, the fun you have, and the profits you make.
The world is full of good, practical, and usable ideas that can help make that big difference for you. But it’s up to you to tailor them to your own unique situation, and more importantly, to put them into action.
