Routines & Systems are what every successful business
falls back upon to show up well.
Does your business?
Routines and systems are what makes champions champs! Is YOUR Business’s performance considered a champ or a chump? Perhaps it’s somewhere in between. Routines and systems really matter to perform at consistent and high levels. Doubt me? Ask any Olympian or pro-athlete. Even what, when, and how they eat is a routine which is part of a bigger system to keep their performance world-class.
Small businesses tend to behave much like a baby. They are dependent upon their Business Owner to consistently tend to their every need. Babies need to be fed. YOUR Business needs to be fed sales to grow. Babies need diapers changed. YOUR Business needs good customer service or things get messy. Babies need to be bathed routinely. YOUR Business needs you to regularly update your product and service offerings. Babies need a translator to communicate what they’re up to. YOUR Business needs active marketing so your marketplace knows what you’re up to at all times.
Babies and YOUR Business Need Routines
Babies need routines of when to eat, sleep, diaper changes, play time, etc. So do you and YOUR Business! Routines, which we usually call a system for effective and efficient operations, is key to helping your baby (business) grow strong. Not only does it help your business grow; it also helps to guide your actions. Additionally is helps YOUR Marketplace and Customers know what to expect from you.
Here’s a commonly known routine: When the fall football season starts we see more beer, pizza, and car commercials. But what if your favorite product wasn’t showing up during footballs games’ commercial time. For years and years they did, and this season they aren’t?!?!
You’d think there is something wrong. Right? Sure. Why aren’t they in their routine? What is going on? Are they viable any longer or do you need to find a new favorite? This is a great way to confuse customers. Do you do this to your customers?
BRILLIANT BREAKTHROUGHS BIG QUESTION:
Which routine or system of YOUR Business needs to be followed better?
Routines and systems matter… have you ever gone out for dinner and had to ask for a menu, water, or the check? It’s not good service when any of this happens. This is a routine for any restaurant. It’s part of their customer service system. Their routines, just like our routines, keep us performing well.
