I was thinking the other day as there was a topic that came up in regards to achieving milestones and how people get there. There was one example where someone was offered a lot of resources where the main problem was the stuff he was being offered isn’t what he needed. For example, imagine someone offering a business to send them hundreds of new potential customers. However, they are currently in a position where they can’t afford the materials to mass produce the necessary items. To make it odd the person expecting business favors in return.
This is often important as even over the past few days I have seen quite a few examples of people simply grabbing everything because it is offered to them where it almost felt like they aren’t crystal clear as to where they want to go and what they specifically need to do so. Even I find that challenging at times such as when you are starting something out you don’t necessarily know your path so how do you know exactly what you need?
I still like that fictional grocery store example I read before where one guy planned so much in opening up his little store and he was fully stocked with every fruits and vegetables you can imagine. The other guy started small and as he got customers to buy items they gave him feedback as to what they want. That guy ended up growing the best with less risk. He could have took and carried everything but as you can imagine that can actually cost you more time and money.
In a funny way it’s almost like hoarding except in a business fashion. I guess even there it can be a bad thing.
