This Simple Tip Will Make A Difference For You

by Paul Castain on February 25, 2014

You absolutely MUST define what’s “out of bounds” in your business and in your life.

Out of bounds as far as what you will allow or tolerate from clients,prospects, coworkers, friends, family etc.

Examples . . .

At what point would you walk away from a client or prospect?

Would you agree to lower your pricing or is that something you would consider out of bounds?

At what point is a late paying customer teetering “out of bounds”?

How about a prospect who always asks you for pricing and then goes radio silent?

A rude and obnoxious boss?

How about work interfering too much with your family life or family life interfering too much with work?

Toxic people who drain the life out of you?

Time Out: Let’s all agree that we won’t get very far in life if we’re too busy thinking about what we WONT do at the price of focusing on what we WILL do but;

On the other hand, I’m reminded of the old saying . . .

“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything”

Too many times we make that decision in the moment, seat of the pants and typically at a moment when our emotions take the driver’s seat.

Thoughts?

    We walked away from a broker client some time ago that was utilizing our estimating dept. for pricing but rarely awarded us work. Company resources are way to valuable these days to waste on clients like that.
