Why Just “Good Enough” Will Kill Your Business or Career Fast

Good enough is never good enough for your business. You and your employees might go home patting yourselves in the back thinking that you met all your clients’ expectations, while you didn’t. They just might not have found reason enough to cause a fuss. Many proprietors and workers will assume that clients are satisfied with their products and services, just because nobody has ever complained. That mentality is detrimental to your career or business. Take yourself for instance. Rarely will you complain because the bus you normally use is a few minutes late, but you prefer if it was always on time. You’d certainly opt for different bus service if it proved to always be punctual. (Statistically, we know that 80% of your customers experiencing less than “good” products or services from you, will not say anything to you. They simply do not come back.) Customers who get just “good enough” from you will vanish the moment they get an alternative. Many clients would rather have a costly but delightful experience with your business, than a cheap “good enough” experience. Try to always go above and beyond in the business that you are in. Concentrate on improving your customer experience [...]

However, what would it be like to choose to change in order to create something greater?

What would that be like… to choose change as a way to generate and create something greater? What else is possible from here? Let’s Talk About It! When you are willing [...]

Well, to me, ease is a conscious space where there’s room to navigate things in a way that’s light; where there can be a calm in the midst of something heavy. And there may be degrees to ease. You may have a lot of ease, a little bit of ease, and maybe no ease. And what would it be like just to ask that question? How much ease is present with me right now, and to check in with that often? And what would it be like now to choose more ease? Basically all you have to do is just take in a deep breath in and expand out and allow ease to come in with ease. A Space to BE With Take a moment to tune in and ask yourself the following questions. Are you choosing to live from a space of ease? Are you aware of the different degrees of ease? Are you open to receiving more of it? When’s the last time you allowed yourself to receive ease with ease? What could you generate and create as a result of choosing more ease in your life? What would that look like for you? What would that BE like [...]
