WHEN THINGS GET SLOW WE TEND TO BLAME SOMETHING.
When times are slow, things tend to build up. I know sometimes I start to over analyze things and wonder, "What is going on?" I try to figure something out to blame for the decrease of sales or the lack of traffic.
WE CAN BLAME MANY THINGS:
- The economy
- The sales people
- The customer
- The President
- The advertising
- The manufacturer
We can play the BLAME GAME and say we are not dong as good because of this or that. What it really boils down to is everyone dong their part 100% of the time to ensure that things are getting done right, following the correct procedures, and working hard all of the time without goofing off?
ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION:
Am I doing all I can to ensure the success of the organization?
If the answer is no, then you can not blame anyone for your lack of success but yourself. Let me re-phrase that; You can only blame yourself!
Don't play the BLAME GAME. Look yourself in the mirror. Give yourself a good critique and then kick your butt into action. Those that are successful, are so because in tough times they work harder, and smarter than others--and they don't blame the circumstances or others for their lack of success.
DON'T PLAY THE BLAME GAME!
