As a person who holds weekly live events, I’ve seen the gamut of wishy washy business moves. I’ve also witnessed the opposite: I love people who know exactly what they want, and do what they need to do to make success happen. It’s all about mindset. If you want to achieve a goal, you simply have to make the decision to do it. Here are some of my favorite wishy washy moves:
- Making a maybe RSVP. Uck! I hate that. What does maybe mean? It means no. So why not RSVP no? Or . . . just ignore. The truth is, people only want to see the RSVP’s of those who say yes, unless you really wanted to go, but were out of town or you broke your leg. I personally think maybe should be banned from RSVP’s.
- Saying you want to sign up for a business or program, but once you do, you stop and start. This is such a time waster for the person who is working with you. They spend time chasing you down. Once they give up on you, you pop back up again. After a while you become a Jack in the Box.
- Not playing by the rules. OK, I know there are many successful people who are major rule breakers. However, for the average person, if you go with the program, and follow a proven success path, you will get from step A to step B.
- Not respecting other people’s time. I’m sure you know a person who is ALWAYS late. You can tell them to show up a ½ hour early and they still arrive last. They burst in the door, disrupt the proceedings and want you to get them up to speed. Or, there are people that just love to hear them self talk. Others may be chomping at the bit to get a word in edgewise, but the talker drones on and on and on.
- Not giving your team enough information. Have you ever wished you owned a crystal ball? Remember that if you want results, make your expectations clear. Very few people can read your mind.
- Low energy – dressed down – looking like you dragged yourself out of bed. Doesn’t work. Next! If you are having a bad day, stay away from people.
I could probably go on and on. What is your favorite wishy washy business move? Comments are always welcome.
