(This one is a gem) 7.  Set aside time for forward thinking

My never-ending daily task list can distract me from putting focus on forward thinking. I know I need to dedicate at least one day each month to planning ahead.

Competing Against Ghosts

Competing Against Ghosts | BusinessTools | Scoop.it

Successful small business owners who have survived everything thrown at them over the years, and continue to prosper as the world changes around them, are well worth talking to to discover the secrets of their success.


More often than not there will be nothing really new about the tips they give, but wrapping these tips up in examples of how they have been applied, makes them invaluable for a less experienced business owner.


This excellent article, reports on a meeting with one old-school business owner, and it provides the seven tips that he offers up that have worked well for him in his business and should work just as well for anyone else.

The Status Quo Is Risky, Too

The Status Quo Is Risky, Too | BusinessTools | Scoop.it

Are you ever frustrated by teammates who cling to the past while you try to introduce novel ideas or new strategies? If your ideas are met with choruses of “that will never work,” “we can’t take that risk,” “let’s just stick with the plan,” your teammates are likely falling prey to a common decision making bias that former Rotman dean Roger Martin refers to as Underestimating the Risk of the Status Quo. If your team’s strategy can be summed up by the English wartime slogan “Keep Calm and Carry On,” you need some new approaches to tackle their resistance.
