Survive and thrive - HOW you do anything is how you do everything

Survive and thrive – HOW you do anything is how you do everything

In 2009 I attended T Harv Eker’s “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind Intensive” or MMI as it’s known. It was indeed intense. There were exercises to shift your mindset , workbooks to consolidate your thoughts, and tools to help you put everything into practice in your daily life outside of the seminar. Of all the things I took away from this event though, one of T Harv’s favourite phrases has stuck – he said:

“How you are in here is how you are out there – How you do anything is how you do everything”.

Which is why I’m using it in this week’s Postcard from the Edge, which is the suit of Spades, which is all about DOING your work.

And in running a business, I’m not talking about doing the lovely work you love to do, whatever that lovely thing is – I’m talking about doing the nuts and bolts stuff of running the business – the account handling, the paperwork if there is any, the processing, the documentation, the invoicing, and all the systems you’ve put in place to help you make a living – to survive – and hopefully to go beyond this – to thrive – from doing the lovely stuff you love doing. We’ll be covering some of this nitty-gritty in The Right-Brain Business Plan workshop tomorrow – which is also very timely…

What 3 words best describe ‘how’ you are running your business right now?
Efficiently, smoothly, effectively?
Dynamically, powerfully, expansively?
Haphazardly, chaotically, occasionally?

What 3 words would you like to be using about this?
Mine would be ‘gracefully, effectively, profitably”

How would you describe the way you do the work you love to do?
Are there similarities between the way you do the not-so-exciting stuff and the stuff you love to do? What are the differences? How does your attitude shift or change?

What 3 ways can you improve your ‘how’ – for you and your clients? This week!!?
