What Are We Doing Right?

– By Andrew B Morris

It’s human nature that we learn very little when we’re on a roll and things are going well. When the chips are down, we discuss, debate, analyse our way out of a crisis, hoping we can remember this stuff next time around.

We are scarred by bad times and remember.

We take good times for granted and forget.

Remember when we were on a roll and things were going right? Wouldn’t it be invaluable to recall what we were doing then that led to that run of good fortune? If we are sustaining high performance, record our magic ingredients, our formula, so that we know how to repeat this, again and again.

When there are changes of management, some of our best ideas are rejected and lost, replaced by fresh techniques introduced in order for new egos to stamp their identity.

Do we find ourselves wondering…”Why did I stop doing that? It always seemed to work?”

Consider capturing your magic formula as a mathematical equation. For example: CM + AS = HM%

Creative Marketing + Awesome Service = High Margin.
