Act As If . . .
Perhaps I am borrowing a little too heavily from Jack Canfield, but all of the Halloween activities this week have inspired me to ponder what would happen if all small business owners started to "dress up" and act as if they had already attained all of their organizational goals.
When my three year old son puts on his fireman jacket with his little badge and plastic fire extinguisher, he really experiences the feeling of being a big, strong firefighter riding a noisy red truck all over my house. In that moment, he is confident and brave.
What would happen if we walked into a meeting pretending to be totally organized, well prepared and not the least bit rushed or scattered? What if we approached our desk as though it were a well-oiled machine, functioning perfectly according to our plan?
My guess is that it would not be long before our world of make-believe started to become reality. So, what are you going to be for Halloween?
