In my last post, we had a peek under the skulls of 40 socially-conscious entrepreneurs. There were so many different and exciting things going on inside their brains, so I wanted to dig around a bit more.
I next asked:
“If I could do one thing to the inside of your brain to make your business more successful than it already is, what would that thing be?”
what if I had a magic wand?
Here are the secret fixes they crave:
- FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS!
- make it all look clearer
- stop worrying about the business
- help me to communicate my thoughts
- set up a ritual that keeps me on track
- remove anxiety
- activate the left side so I am more realistic and pragmatic
- create a feeling of satisfaction
- improve my listening skills
- give me the ability to drill into problems
Nearly half of the entrepreneurs asked for the ability to focus – they want to know exactly what they’re offering, where they’re heading, and how they’re going to get there.
Come back in two weeks when I give you some tips on how to find that focus.
over to you…
As always, I’d love to hear from you. What would you use the magic wand for? Share your comments below.
