How to Deal with Pain Points in Your Business in a Sexy, Beautiful Way
Be honest with yourself today. Have you lost that loving feeling for your business? Do you leave your 9 am to 5 pm with a headache instead of a heart full of love and passion, ready to do the same the next day? Does it sometimes feel like you have zero motivation?
Don’t be discouraged if this is how you feel. There is hope.
Having those feelings doesn’t mean your business is a failure, and it’s time to throw in the towel. It just means you probably have a pain point or two (or maybe a whole lot) that need to be resolved.
There is a SEXY SOLUTION and we are here to share it with you today. You can start to love your business. Here’s how:
Be Honest About Your Pain Points
The first step to solving anything is being honest.
It is absolutely crucial to admit that there are pain points in your business. And know that it is OK to realize that your business isn’t sexy and beautiful, in the way you had hoped it to be.
Being honest is the only possible first step that will lead to solving those awful pain points. You have to be honest with how you feel and honest about where you want to be.
The alternative to being honest is ignoring your pain points or denying that they even exist. Be very careful. This is a lot more dangerous than you might think because it will take your business down the pain point slippery slope.
Don’t Be a Boiling Frog
Put a frog in boiling water and he will hop right out. But put a frog in tepid water and put the flame up a little higher and higher and over some time the frog will sit there and boil to death. The frog tolerates the heat, gets used to it, and that eventually kills him.
It’s the same in business. When something big happens in business, when we are suddenly thrown into a big pot of boiling water, we all jump to fix the pain point and work on a solution. All hands are on deck and all brains work together to solve the pain point.
We seem to approach pain points in a different way when they are smaller. We think these smaller pain points don’t need our immediate attention.
So we don’t handle them with urgency. We tolerate them over and over and over. We push them aside and leave them in a pile. This pile accumulates over time and eventually becomes one hot mess. Or a splitting headache!
Tolerating “small pain points” is not good for you and it’s not good for your business.
Start the Pain Point Process
Start the pain point process by identifying all the pain points in your business. Stop and feel where the pain points are. Where is the friction in your business? Where are things bottlenecking and causing problems? Ask yourself. Ask your team. Ask your clients.
Be proactive. Don’t wait until something breaks. This is something you can do today as soon as you finish reading this blog.
After identifying the pain points, group them. Write them down, group them, and track them using whatever project management software your business uses.
After you have grouped your pain points, in a way that makes sense to you and your business, start to solve them.
For a sexy business and a sexy life, you have GOT TO start getting serious about your PAIN POINTS. So start working on them today!
Once you have identified your pain points you may need a little help solving them. It’s often a whole lot easier when you can get some coaching from someone who has walked this road ahead of you.
