Too many small business owners spend too much of their time holding the line. They do things because “that is the way we have always done it.” This is foolish. To propel your business forward, you must get out of the same old/same old. Look for new ways of doing things.
This is the difference between a bureaucrat and a leader. A bureaucrat will say that this is how is it done because it has always been done this way. Bureaucrats hate change. Leaders embrace change. Find the leader in yourself and look at your business. What process can be improved? What can you do better?
Bureaucrats spend their time whining about the way things are – crying when things have to change. Leaders make change happen.
When the dust is settled, the only ones left will be the true leaders.
