The Spiderwick Chronicles:
Business Movie Review 

Business strategies of 
Promises, Warnings, & Possibilities

The Spiderwick Chronicles (2008) was produced by Nickelodeon Movies. It is a movie about a family dealing with real life concepts. Then magically, an added element appears of simultaneously living in a fantasy world. The family must unite on many different fronts to thwart their opponent, who has been waiting a long time for the right moment. I won’t give away any of the story line here. This is a family-friendly movie and rated PG. Great to watch any time of the year and wonderful to watch during October.

This movie is entertaining and educational. Watching it through a different lens will help you improve YOUR Business Success! 

The Spiderwick Chronicles Business Strategy #1 
Promises

A promise is broken to one of the children. This is coupled with the family keeping a secret as to why it is broken. Unfortunately, these decisions create unnecessary stress for everyone. The family is splintered and has another set of challenges because of this; yet, circumstances force them to unite to battle their new nemesis.

How often do you break promises? In business, promises commonly appear as appointments and goals. Unfortunately, we don’t typically see them as such and break them far too often. Broken promises impact other aspects we don’t commonly consider. Click on the link above to learn more about how promises help us keep our commitments and hold true to our priorities in business and life. 

The Spiderwick Chronicles Business Strategy #2 
Warnings!

Jared finds an 80-year-old hidden book. The book was sealed and it had a note on top of it with a warning not to open the book. Of course, the boy did open the book and everything he knew changed from that moment forward.

How often do you see warnings and disregard them? This week, I heard two clients share stories about this occurring. They saw the warnings, but didn’t take heed. When we disregard warnings, we must face consequences, which often appear with greater complexity than appropriately acknowledging the warning in the first place. How can you make better choices to simplify your success?

The Spiderwick Chronicles Business Strategy #3 
Possibilities

The children are looking for clues; they need to see the unseen. They know it is possible, and then they find some tools to see the possibilities presented to them. Once they do see what’s in front of them, they take appropriate actions.

Some small business owners have the wisdom to sense what is about to happen and adjust accordingly. Recently, I could sense something was going to go awry with tech. Only two days later, it did. I was able to respond instead of react and we were able to proceed appropriately. The next day when a different tech issue imploded, I was responding appropriately, but much more flustered than the day before. 

How can you better prepare yourself for the different possibilities your projects may provide?
