“Leave the door open to the unknown, the door into the dark. That’s where the most important things come from, where you yourself came from, and where you will go.” – Rebecca Solni
Clarity is defined as “the quality of being clear, in particular.” As a business owner, how clear are you about the future of your business and how clear is the plan to share that message with staff and customers? Most business owners in the small to medium market are identified as owners who spend more time working in their business than working on it, in comparison to their counterparts. Counterparts in bigger businesses, the owners are not working in the business, but they tend to lack resources and professional development.
The goal that is not clearly defined will not be clearly achieved as expected. Believe it or not, clarity allows passion and purpose for business owners to align and it becomes a means of overcoming obstacles. In a perfect world, business owners have the resources and means to develop clarity from day one. Since we do not live in such a perfect world, we strongly suggest that business owners start with self. Start with self-awareness, self-purpose, self-goals, self-strength and weakness and self-values. These will give business owners a head start on answering the “why” about the business. These will help you determine why a goal or vision is important and how it will help you achieve your overall business goal.
When taking on a challenge like this, the best recommendation is to start with simple steps. For example, have you ever come across a business who says “We offer GREAT customer service”? Any business can say it but do you know what it means? How do you strive for “something” if it’s not clear what that “something” is? You must give it some clarity and strive to put a definition to GREAT.
