Time to Accelerate Out of the Down Curve
Using a race car driving analogy – it’s time to accelerate out of the curve (down turn for business issues) or we will create more problems for the economy. Okay, so what do I mean by this statement? It means put some control back into the equation.
To use the knowledge of the racing drivers, they learn early that the key to maintaining control of their cars in high speed turns is to accelerate into the turn and through the curve. This power surge keeps the car in an invisible groove and the driver maintains control. No spinning out of control – which happens when you slow down in a curve. The lost of traction and speed allows the car to slip on anything in its path through the turn.
We can use this knowledge to keep our economy, our business or our sales career moving in the right direction even during this economic down turn. Accelerate your pace regarding decisions and actions taken. The people that think they are playing it safe by decelerating are already losing control. They are laying off people, eliminating essential staff members (knowledge and experience), eliminating developmental activities and taking no risks with change or innovation.
Stupid is as Stupid does! To paraphrase Forrest Gump.
Make a commitment to accelerate out of the curve starting today. Join the ranks of the confident that believe we have choices. The future can get brighter if we take control of our short term activities. Make things happen at a faster pace. Take a chance on development so your people can accelerate their successes. You can make a difference. Especially if people just say “no” to the statusquo.
