Want in on a super-secret business tactic?
You need to burn the bridge if you’re going to succeed. There, I said it and I know you’re thinking I’m a little crazy.
But here’s what you need to know- burn the bridge does not mean you should rush out and dump all your friends.
Instead, I’m talking about making a decision and sticking to it; to make decisions that cannot be changed in the future you gotta burn the bridge! To commit yourself to a course of action you MUST intentionally cut off your own retreat.
I’m feeling a little like a drill sergeant here because I know if you want to give yourself the best possible chance for a decision to stick, your only option is to march forward.
Want to commit yourself to a course of action? Then you need to demolish any alternative course.
1. State your intention out loud. When you tell other people “this is what I’m going to do” you’re creating a point of no return for yourself.
2. Use your money. Money is a sure-fire way to commit yourself to a plan. Seriously, you must march forward or you’ll be flushing that money right down the toilet.
Calling all you business soldiers! This is the point of no return. Get out there and CRUSH/ BURN/ DEMOLISH those bridges and start achieving your business goals.
