Compared to the Unattainable!

Posted · Add Comment

  The easiest way to sell yourself short is to compare your work to the competition. To say that you are 5% cheaper or have one or two features that stand out–this is a formula for slightly better mediocrity. The goal ought to be to compare yourself not to the best your peers or the […]

The tyranny of low price!

Posted · Add Comment

  If you build your business around being the lowest-cost provider, that’s all you’ve got. Everything you do has to be a race in that direction, because if you veer toward anything else (service, excellence of delivery, knowledgeable advice.) then a competitor with a more single-minded focus will sell your commodity cheaper than you.

The founder of a large company gave this example to his employees: A problem is like a thorn. Thorns (although very small at times) hurt! They need to be removed right away before they fester and get infected. If you ignore them, bad things happen! We will all have problems or thorns that come up from  from […]
