How many times have you felt like you’re not getting anywhere with your UPbook business? That all your hard work isn’t paying off as quickly as you would like? Probably often, if you’re like most.
Here’s the good news: there is a strategic way that you can achieve your UPbook business’s next goal. It involves using the path of least resistance. Let’s take a closer look so that you can crush your next goal.
What’s the Path of Least Resistance?
The Law of Conservation of Energy states this: in nature, change happens along the path of least resistance or least energy expenditure. That means that nature doesn’t take a long way around, or the hard way — change occurs in the easiest way possible. We can see this in various ways, from animal behavior to environmental change. The question is… how does it apply to you?
How Does This Apply to My Business?
The idea of the path of least resistance can apply to your UPbook business in one simple way: follow a straight line to get to your goal, with no obstacles. That doesn’t sound like it is always possible, but thinking about this in a strategic way can help.
Ask yourself one question: what is the laziest way for you to achieve your goal? We know that the word “lazy” isn’t something that you, as an UPbook practice owner, typically associates with yourself. But stick with us!
We tend to spend so much time thinking over the details that we forget there may be a simple way, a lazy way, to achieve what we want. And if there is, what’s stopping you?
What are the Action Steps I Should Take?
First, write down your goal. It can be a big-picture goal for the overall success of your UPbook business, or a smaller, more immediate goal.
Now, think about the laziest way you can achieve that. Don’t worry about the other factors surrounding it, just focus on the easiest way to do it.
Now ask yourself this: can my UPbook business achieve the goal this way? If you can, why not do it? If it doesn’t impact your business in a negative way or cause some kind of collateral damage, there’s no reason that you shouldn’t use the path of least resistance to your desired end.
It’s all about working smarter, not harder! When you can use the path of least resistance to your advantage at your UPbook organization, your time will be freed up to focus on things that are even more impactful.
