Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 12/27/10

December 27, 2010—Issue #67

This week’s focus point: Season’s Best to everyone! In this “lull” before New Year’s, spend an hour a day thinking about your business and/or talking about it with a significant other or trusted colleague. Don’t think about how to fix, repair, or commit to remedial work. Instead, focus on what you’re already very good at and how to capitalize on that strength. We all grow by building on strengths, not by trying to metamorphose every weakness into idealized perfection. We’re all imperfect. Success trumps perfection. Happy New Year!

Monday Morning Perspective: In art the subject upon which you concentrate is unimportant; it is only the quality of your concentration that counts. — John Steinbeck

I remember a meeting with a boutique consulting firm that had fallen on hard times. The debate was whether or not to sell their magnificent conference table. “Where would clients sit?” asked one partner. “We have no clients,” stated the advocate of selling. You can’t cut your way to renewal or success. Top line growth is the key to bottom line achievement, for you and for your clients. Today is the time to invest in the future. Once you cut muscle, you’re powerless.
