Would you rather read the newspaper or make $1,500?
The answer seems obvious to me…
I had a recent “duh, buddy” experience that made me really think about blind-spots and “being right” and how they are COSTLY!
On our recent Life Is Beautiful trip to Tuscany, ten of us were wandering the local town in search of food, wine and good times.
We were starving as it was 7:00 pm.
We found one of the only restaurants in town whose door was open and we were thrilled.
With hunger burning a hole and our credit cards out, we joyously greeted the owner, only to be told that he did not open up for an hour.
The man was sitting at his own bar in his empty restaurant reading a newspaper, and ten people were begging to give him money, and he turned us away.
I thought he must misunderstand so in my broken Italian I told him that ten of us wanted to eat and drink. Could he not just serve us some wine for now if his kitchen was not open?
“No” he said. “We would have to come back in an hour.”
The business coach in me could not believe this…
”Are you sure?” I asked. “There’s ten of us. We can just start with wine.”
“No, I am not open yet.”
The place was empty.
Tables were set.
Wine was easily opened.
He was reading the freaking newspaper!
Ten people wanted to spend 50-100 Euros a piece… a grand haul of 500-1,000 Euros – roughly $1,500 US – which for a local restaurant would have been great income AND he is in the SERVICE business…but he was more interested in following “the rules” and reading the newspaper.
He told us to come back later. We DID NOT come back later. We went elsewhere, and cursed his stupidity.
If ten people, hungry for your product or service, pulled up to your proverbial door with credit cards out would you turn them away?
✖️ You’re waiting to be ready.
✖️ You’re waiting to get it just right.
✖️ You’re allowing distractions to stop you.
✖️ You’re following “the rules” and believe it has to be hard or take a long time.
✖️ You’re questioning if you have the skills or authority.
✖️ You refuse to ask for the business or work on your money, sales and marketing skills.
Let me tell you, people are HUNGRY for what you got, but often because of our own blind spots “we turn them away at the door” and might not even know it.
We also like to be right even when we are wrong.
This man assuredly thought he was right.
It cost him. That night, and probably many before and many after.
Imagine if he did this at least once a month – that’s $1500 x 12 = $18,000 a year.
That’s $18,000 a year that his blind spots and need “to be right” are costing him!
What might your blind spots be costing you?
Seriously, do the math!
Breaking through them will require an investment of time, money and energy. Do you want to do that or do you want to keep losing money, time and clients?
