Business Advice from a Waiter: Keep Your Eyes Forward & Do Not Focus on the Tray
We’ve seen the server at the restaurant- the one balancing a tray full of food and beverages seamlessly through a crowd with ease and grace. We look at our fellow dining mates amused, “How do they it and make it look so easy? I could never carry a tray like that!”
The server is able to successfully carry the entire tray gracefully because they are keeping their eyes focused on their goal ahead and not fumbling staring at the tray and thinking “Oh my gosh look at all this stuff I am carrying!”
The same goes for life, and for business. We need to keep our focus forward-on our end goals. We cannot waste our mental energy thinking about how many things are on our tray…associates, taxes, inventory, etc.
You may be asking yourself what on earth does this have to do with marketing. The answer is everything. The healthier your mental state, the heathier your business, the more likely your business is to attract what it needs to grow.
Keep your eyes forward.
