Hiya! I have another delayed post today, but let me get straight into the matter.
Do you know that an entrepreneur can add value to his enterprises by viewing and managing the business as work in progress? Do you know that managing an enterprise at whatever stage as work in progress is beneficial? Of course I know you will tell me that since business is a going concern and is meant to be sustainable, the idea of work-in-progress here is absolute nonsense. Isn’t this the case? The point I’m trying to drive home is the avoidance of the dangerous habit, attitude or mentality that some entrepreneurs adopt thinking they have reached the zenith. I mean that destructive sense of accomplishment that triggers the start of regression.
Though work in progress has other meanings in the business world, I want to focus on the viewpoint of unfinished project. Work in progress means unfinished business. It means something still being developed, and is incomplete. So, what I’m meaning in this article is that every entrepreneur, at whatever stage of the enterprise, should view and manage his business as something incomplete but in development. The enterprise is ever an unfinished business, and once you start thinking that you have finished and reached your destination, you are at a dangerous point. Do you understand what I mean?
So, let’s quickly run through my points to justify my line of thoughts above.
I guess I need to get going now. But before I sign off let me say this. Whatever level of accomplishment you have reached in your business, or whatever stage you are at, always treat your enterprise as work in progress – something yet to be completed; something still to be developed. I believe you will come back and tell me the value created in your business by this approach. Ok?
