GIT R DONE!

Published by

If you’re not

                 

charging forward,

                                             

you may be

                       

wearing blinders

                                           

 …or maybe you’re just not

                                                  

  an entrepreneur after all.

 

More than simply a southern United States colloquialism (meaning to finish an action, to complete the job at hand), the “Git R Done” expression could realistically be the motto for entrepreneurs everywhere.

There is no greater thrust of urgency in business than the entrepreneurial pursuit of making an idea work, of making something happen . . . of getting the job done.

If you are genuinely serious about starting up a (or numerous) business venture(s) –especially in this continually failing economy (and don’t believe the figures being tossed out by mainstream media’s talking heads to the contrary)– you must be willing to arm yourself with an action attitude.

This means, among other things, that the kinds of delay tactics exercised by 9.9 of every 10 lawyers is not going to be a productive approach for you. (And, by the way, you know when you’re doing tasks of avoidance, right?)

Having an “Action Attitude” means that you need to get your act together to the point where offering excuses (of any kind) doesn’t cut it.

It means that it’s time (assuming you’re still with me on this) to stop dilly-dallying (You like that expression? Came from my mother!). It’s time to take your show on the road.

It’s time to stop studying and analyzing and worrying about “what if?” It’s time to follow Nike’s advice, and just do it!

There’s an old TV beer commercial that proclaimed “You only go around once in life!”

Hey, maybe you do, maybe you don’t.

But –for sure– you only get one chance at a first impression, a first new business launch, a first new product line extension, or a first new revenue stream, or new service offering.

Yes, there is always (With appreciative thanks to “The Chairman of the Board,” alias “Mr. Blue Eyes,” Frank Sinatra, who maybe you’ve never heard of, but who sang a big-time song to the cause of )”The Second Time Around.”

And “things” can be easier the second time around, but they’re never the same, and can never have the same first-time impression.

You’ve got an idea you believe in? Give it

substance. Polish it up. Test it. Launch it.

If you’re going to exercise big-time effort trying to justify yourself, trying to raise “enough money to do it right” or trying to swamp the competition in one fell swoop (now there’s an image!), you are probably going to live a happier life working for a corporate giant or plodding government agency.

Certainly –under those circumstances–

“entrepreneurship” doesn’t ring a bell! 

If any of what’s here seems in the least bit discouraging, odds are pretty good that you are somehow blocking yourself from being venturesome, from taking reasonable risks.

You could be harboring fears that will prevent you from making your ideas work. You may be blocking your own success. Work at it. Or see a shrink.

But don’t charge forward with blinders on.
