Are you scratching your head as to why your competitors are succeeding and you’re not? Is it because you’re too slow???
According to Lee Iacocca, “The speed of the boss is the speed of the team.” Lee was best known for leading the development of the Ford Mustang and reviving the Chrysler Corporation as its CEO during the 1980’s. He didn’t have time to slow down if he was going to succeed.
Former CEO of GE, Jack Welch, said that his top three S’s for success were, “speed, simplicity, and self-confidence.” Another example of a super successful person who didn’t slow down in business.
In this weeks video, Spensir Chappell of Bright Eyed Moving and Marky Fresh is apparently in great company with speed being one of his #ibbtop3 keys to success. His businesses have begun to explode and it has a lot to do with his dedication to growing and learning a fast as possible.
Throughout my career I can recall a constant barrage of people telling me, “James you need to slow down.”
As a former distance running athlete in college all I ever knew for years was “faster is better!” If you weren’t focused on finishing faster each day then you might as well not show up. There was no other option if you were going to succeed. You had to give more effort at a faster speed to survive. You would LITERALLY be left in the dust of those who had been putting in the work at a faster pace.
In business, it’s not so easy to determine. There’s no official finish line. The finish line is called being “retired” at the top or “bankrupt” at the bottom. Unfortunately, there are more businesses that fail than succeed. The reality is if people are telling you, “You need to slow down.” Then you are doing something RIGHT! If you run a business or want to thrive in the career world you HAVE to operate at a faster speed than the competition.
Faster is better in business. It is vital to endure the speed of the business world if you want to succeed. Don’t listen to people who tell you to slow down. Some of them truly care for you; however, most people want you to stop and throw a pity party with them because they weren’t fast enough.
