490: What We Can’t See In Ourselves That Holds Us Back

Post thumbnail

Ever watched one of those TV shows like Kitchen Nightmares or Hotel Inspector?

The ones where a guru enters a restaurant or hotel and picks it to shreds, revealing 2-3 key alterations that will change their lives?

We watch thinking, “Gosh, how obvious, how did they survive this long?” Thing is, we’re all that restaurant or hotel owner:

  • There are those in the market who are mediocre compared to us. We can look at their operations and clearly see our advantage.
  • There are others who have surpassed us. All of us. They could look back at our operations and see what we’re missing, too.
  • Our skills got us where we are so far. We’re doing the best we can with what we know and what we have. But we can do better.

As cause-driven businesses, the better we do, the more impact we create. We would all benefit from asking ourselves, “What would the hotel inspector say about our operation”?

(Tip: Those shows often focus on communication and marketing. can help you with that.)
