We live in the age of instant gratification. Everyone wants—and expects—everything NOW. Or sooner!
This impacts every business as customers seek products, solutions, services and answers faster than ever before.
As business owners and leaders, we try to constantly make changes and adjustments to our business to adapt.
This is a trap.
Finding a solution before fully understanding the condition can hurt your business.
While quickly adopting a new approach is tempting, we're not immune to the lure of instant gratification either. Some outside influences use this knowledge to prescribe their medication (i.e. their products or services) as the perfect cure before they have even diagnosed our specific condition.
Like patients, each business is unique. A successful doctor prescribes medication only after diagnosis.
We need to treat our business the same way.
