Why Entrepreneurs Need to Learn How to Control The Wind in Their Sails
In this short post, you’ll gain a better understanding of why entrepreneurs need to learn how to control the wind in their sails.
I’m not talking about product or service “sales” here… I’m talking about “sails” that catch wind and carry you on a sailboat. You’ve probably heard the saying, “you can’t control the wind, but you can control your sails that catch the wind.” Yes, it may sound cheesy to you, but this little quote is pretty much going to sum up your life as an entrepreneur.
You’re going to have good gusts of wind, and you’re going to have bad gusts of wind, but the one constant you need to learn through both types of wind, is that you need to keep adjusting your sails to continue heading in the proper direction. The trick as an entrepreneur, is to learn to use the wind to your advantage. Learning to make quick, educated, and best judgement decisions, is a must for entrepreneurs.
As an entrepreneur, sometimes you just need to make a decision from your gut… just like a captain on a sailboat does when the wind changes. Yes, you can sit there and analyze, and get stuck in the paralysis by analysis mindset, but it’s really not going to do you any good. When a situation arises in your business, you need to pull all of your senses… you need to pull everything you’ve learned over the years… and you need to bring them into one central focal point, and make your best educated decision from that point of strength.
That’s some pretty deep stuff there… but it’s what works for some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world, and it can work for you as well. The best part is that after you cognitively make a few “central point decisions,” it pretty much becomes totally natural to you, and you’ll just do it without even knowing it. This is when you can really pick up some steam as an entrepreneur and make up ground very quickly.
