Find your answers, not the “right” answers

I discovered Men with Pens several years ago and have been on-goingly impressed. I am truly excited to now be working with them (look for my new web-design in 2011!) Their renegade style coupled with substance resonates with me.

A recent post on the MWP blog hits the mark regarding the importance of doing your business, your way. Following is a excerpt:

If you want to build and grow and succeed in business….you need to stretch your thoughts and think beyond what you’re being told to do.

Get those textbooks from all the experts, sure – but use them as a springboard, a starting point.

Muse, ponder, ask questions, explore. Contemplate what’s being done and what could be done differently, or better. Think about what works for other businesses and compare that to what might work (or won’t fit) for yours.

Don’t assume the experts have all the perfect answers and template instructions to success – they only have the perfect answer of what’s worked for their business. You can replicate some of what they’ve done, sure, and you’ll achieve a certain measure of success, yes.

But imagine what might happen if you went beyond what they did.

Find your answers – not the “right” answers.

Poke at the “what ifs” and explore calculated risks. Try out new ways of pulling in clients or getting raves that no one has done before. Be untrendy and reject what’s cool. Look instead for what’s smart or efficient or effective. Chase money and results, and leave extra work and expenses in the dust.

If you want to succeed, you have to question the “rules” and the “musts” that other people tell you. You need to improve on textbook methods and rote strategies to reach even better results. MWP Post “Are You Barely Passing with Your Business Philosophy?

Remember the basics, look deep within and design your own strategies for success!
