Check out our fun infographic, inspired by Roy Osing, author of the BE DiFFERENT or be dead Book Series. Roy has a great point to share — that success isn’t elegant and is not the result of a formula.
No, doing anything worthwhile can be messy (as any parent knows)! Things don’t often go as planned — and when something unpredictable happens, you must be willing to scramble and get dirty to move forward. (For example, I could show you pictures my cruel, cruel husband took many years ago when I waded into — and then fell into — a muddy pond rescuing my daughter’s beloved Pinky from an unexpected water journey!)
Achievement is a messy affair, and if you are NOT prepared to get dirty, chances are you won’t reach your desired destination.
What does “get dirty” look like when you’re working toward a goal? Here are Roy’s 10 “dirty rules”:
- Make fast decisions.
- Have a Plan B.
- Embrace Imperfection.
- Do it. Try it. Fix it.
- Align yourself with doers.
- Work outside your comfort zone.
- Bend the rules.
- Do what needs to be done.
- Avoid multitasking.
- Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
If you want to succeed, take a look at your hands. If they’re dirty, you’re on the right path! Enjoy this infographic, and be sure to share it with anybody else who’s striving for sales success!
