Embrace the Work, and Don’t Be Afraid to Get Dirty!

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”:

  1. Make fast decisions.
  2. Have a Plan B.
  3. Embrace Imperfection.
  4. Do it. Try it. Fix it.
  5. Align yourself with doers.
  6. Work outside your comfort zone.
  7. Bend the rules.
  8. Do what needs to be done.
  9. Avoid multitasking.
  10. 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!
