A SERIOUS QUESTION FOR YOU

THIS IS A POST FROM THE HARDCORE CONSULTANT – IF YOU’RE EASILY OFFENDED, OR DON’T WANT TO HEAR THE TRUTH, STOP READING NOW AND GO BACK TO HIDING YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND

So I was watching TV the other night…something that I don’t always have time to do…but here’s the thing…I saw this commercial and it was asking what the most powerful question in the world was.

So I was thinking about business as I always do and thought…What is the most powerful question in any business?

You know what it is?

it is simple.

PAY ATTENTION! YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS!

it is the question – Why?

I was doing a consulting job one time for a company that specialized in flooring. It was interesting to me from a number of standpoints. The guy who had called me in had been the lead salesman for the company and had bought it from the owner when he had decided to retire. The problem was, he told me, that he couldn’t make any money. So I asked the simplest of questions – Why?

The owner looked like I had just hit him between the eyes with a two by four. In all the time he had been owner, he had never honestly asked himself this simple question.

WOW! You really have to be kidding me!

After a few weeks of digging, we found out what the answer to that simple question truly was and when I help the owner correct the problems AND correct his thinking about his business, things started to turn around for him. He wrote a great letter to my company after the fact.

Here is an excerpt –

“ There are three things I will always remember about the Hardcore Consultant’s visit.

  1. The sick feeling I had as he tore everything I thought I knew about my business to shreds.
  2. The look on his face as he asked me “WHY?” over and over again
  3. The immense feeling of relief that I felt as I relearned how to correctly run my business knowing finally that it was going to be successful”

Do you know the whys of your company? Do I need to come there and ask you why? I guarantee that you don’t want me coming in there! Are you going to do it yourself? Honestly ask yourself why something isn’t working in your business?

WAIT…What? You don’t have time for that? MAKE TIME! See my post about Time vs Money if you want some more information on why you need to make time to ask WHY!

NOW QUIT SCREWING AROUND AND GET TO WORK!

My best regards
