I made a very interesting connection today between playing ‘Star Wars: Commander’ on my phone and running my wonderful business.
This Star Wars Game is lots of fun where you build your base, attack other players around the world, defend yourself against them and play with your clan in big 15 vs 15 Squad Wars.
I have loved it and you can say it’s my escape from the world around me that I frequently indulge in (lol). I was looking over my base in the game (which I haven’t in a while) and realised there were a few problems in it.
I saw a few obvious flaws in the design which were easy attack points, then realised I haven’t been using all my allocated resources! It was quite silly, and I had the immediate breakthrough to my own business.
There have been times in my own business where I have done that. I have just gone on working ‘in’ the business and not ‘on’ it; all to realise that I have been missing some key opportunities and making some equally key mistakes.
This is a very bad thing in business is that it impairs our performance and I have learned that we must develop the skill of always questioning & upgrading what we are doing.
For example, every time I meet someone or run an event, I ask myself how I could improve it. I am forever challenging myself to improve my own game to get out of the trap of ‘same old, dumb old’ which is extremely easy to slip into. As I do this, it helps me really improve the business which in turn gets me more clients that grows my funding.
My advice and thinking? Always look in the mirror and question what you are doing in your business. Even if you get everything for the moment, what happens is that as you grow and come back you will pick up new things.
It’s always great to keep looking over things so you are maximising your performance and marketing continually! The more I do it, the better!
Make sure you stare into the mirror and critique what you do. It sets you on the path to improvement.
Love your work, thank you for the read and stay awesome friends!
