I love open water swimming way more than a pool. This week I went with a friend who hadn’t been for a while. She was understandably nervous & wanted a buddy for support, so we swam a shorter warm-up lap & then a couple of longer laps at her pace.
I loved being there to support her & see her delight as she realised that she could achieve more than she thought. The resulting delight was infectious.
And it struck me, that sometimes we all need a bit of a buddy to help us get started on something. Perhaps it’s building confidence, perhaps it’s sense checking some ideas or maybe it’s executing a plan to get more sales. And who doesn’t want to get more sales, right?
Often the plan writing isn’t that hardest part of growing sales for your business. Instead, it’s the execution, responsibility & accountability.
Without execution, a plan ain’t going to get you the sales that you want. It’s just going to be a plan; a plan that delivers nothing but frustration & ultimately disappointment.
So if you’re struggling to get started on executing your plans because you just don’t know where to start, you lack time or resource, you might just need a buddy to get you started & take the pressure off.
By the way the water’s lovely. Shall we dive in & swim together?
