In this reality, planning is suggested as making good business sense. And it can work… as long as you are willing to change! For most business leaders, they get their vision clear, and then they stop creating. Or they create it until they are bored, and then they stop creating. Or they do the plan… and then they stop creating.
If you have been killing off your business inadvertently, you may want to ask more questions! What if the Joy of Business is about constantly creating something greater?
“Get out of the way of what you’ve decided your business, company or project should be, and ask more questions. You have to be willing for your business to go away. You have to be willing for every single project you’re working on to come to an end. However, you don’t have to destroy a business that requires something different from you! This isn’t the only option. Instead of deciding that your company or your project is dead, or that you don’t wish to do it anymore, ask questions:
- Who or what can contribute to this?
- What else can I add to my business?
- What else can I add to my life?
When I talk about being open to change, I’m not suggesting that you shouldn’t make plans for your business. It’s okay to make plans. You also need to remember that almost nothing works out the way you thought it would.” ~ Simone Milasas, The Joy of Business Book
What if asking questions is the way you open doors to greater possibilities? What if questions are the essence of constant creation? How many questions would you be willing to ask? What questions could you ask that you have never thought to ask before?
