Uncomplicate Your Business with Small Adjustments

For some reason, my business has felt very complicated lately. It makes me want to revert to old habits or throw out everything and start over or change everything I recently put in place.

All of these options have a huge potential for chaos, so in a moment of clarity I made a better choice… I went to the gym to work out.

Starting my workout, I cranked up my favorite Pandora station to my music of choice: Dubstep.

As I listened, I heard something that was TOTALLY out of alignment. It was so small, but I realized, here is something I can do something about!

The song I was jamming to (The Drop by Bro Safari) has the sound of a gun cocking worked into the rhythm. And I love this song. But every time I heard it, I cringed a little.

I’d even thought about skipping this song in the past but dismissed the idea, thinking, “Hey, I like the song, the rhythm, the up-tempo beat. It’s fine.”

This time, though, I blocked the song. I decided that in the chaotic mindset I’ve been in, “fine” just isn’t good enough anymore.

Two songs later, up pops The Groove by Oiki and… the same sound of a gun cocking. I imagined an angel on my shoulder giggling behind her hand saying, “Let’s see if she’s serious about this alignment business.”

Blocked it.

Next song? Another one I love but I never clued in to the lyrics. It’s almost entirely comprised of the lyrics, “I want to kill everybody in the world.”

JEEZ. WAY out of alignment. (how had I never noticed?)

Blocked it.

Did miraculous total clarity ensue? No. But I did get focused on what I have authority over in my life and it definitely left me feeling more empowered and on track for that miraculous clarity.

When I have the urge to go backwards, or revamp everything, I have to remember to focus on the small things that are out of alignment and are contributing in small ways to the overall chaos.

This is where I have control. This is where inner and outer alignment can be fine-tuned so I can be stronger and better equipped to tackle the bigger challenges.

So she developed the simple structure to cut through all the noise of social media, "experts", online funnels, advertising and more to focus on the central problem of business owners: getting more clients. And you know what? There is NOT a one-size-fits-all solution.
