Hoping is Not a Business Strategy!

Morning Folks!!

The more I talk to folks the more I see they always have a missing link to their business plan. They fill that gap with "Hope" instead of a solid plan or even a number of plans. Hope is also the code name for Google rankings and traffic. They hope this and they hope that but hope is not enough to bend the needle. "Will" outranks "Hope." "Desire" even outranks "Hope". Almost everything outranks "Hope."

We all do it but "Hope" is not proactive, it is passive. Hope is wishing and waiting and not doing much to make it happen. DOING makes things happen. Hope is as good as a wish. They are equals. Thus you have two very different types of people from the get go.

"Hope" you enjoyed my little post. :-)

Have a GREAT Day!

    short and sweet post and very meaningful….. the most wasted resource today is talent and time… if I had used half of the time I wasted in the past 5 years into Executing two business ideas they would have been up by now… That’s another waste though … regret :-) The time to do is NOW. Utilizing your God given time to the best of your abilities daily ensures there is some reason for HOPE and no place for REGRETS.

    Is not domaining the business of hope?
    People acquire names like lottery tickets with the “hope” someone will buy one day for a lot of money.
    Because it’s what most domainers are doing, the ones who market their domains or are actively seeking buyers is an ultra minority.

    Hope is often a byword for lack of prior analysis and contingency planning. There is generally more than one solution to any objective realisation, make sure you understand and follow the best one based on return but also risk.
