BUILD THE BUSINESS YOU WANT

Leaking Boat

I want you to imagine that you're in a boat and the boat has sprung a leak. You see the leak and you take immediate action. 

First you panic, and then as quickly as you can you start bailing the water out of the boat - quick, quick, quick. All in a state of heightened frenzy. 

You look over your shoulder and behind you is someone who looks very much like you. 

They're sat back, pondering the situation. They've worked out that at the speed the water is coming in, with that level of bailing, it's a matter of time before the boat sinks. They're looking at the situation and seeing that it’s inevitable - what is needed is some creative thinking. Keeping a clear mind to think about what can be done to fix this boat. 

• How do we stem the water flow to give us more time to bail? 

• What resources do we have? 

• Who do we know who can help us? 

• What's available to us that can fix this problem and get us out of this sinking boat? 

I want you to understand that both of these people are you. Which person you bring to the table at any one time depends on the situation, the circumstance and your personal tendency. 

Now there's sometimes a need to just bail the boat, but there's also very often a need, especially if your boat is your business, to step back for a moment and really think about what the problem is here and how you can creatively problem solve. 

I must confess, my natural tendency is to bail - to put as much energy as I possibly can into it to try and solve the problem. But what I'm learning more and more is that having the ability to really take a measured step back, look at the situation, understand what the problem is and look at what resources are around me to fix that problem, can often be the right thing in these emergency situations. 

So I'm going to refer to one of George's podcasts, which is what inspired me to put this post out, but have a think about what you bring to each and every problem and challenge that you're meeting at the moment. 

Do you need to bail, or do you need to use some creative thinking?
