Entrepreneurs and mountains

The elements of mountain climbing are very similar to that of the business world. It’s harsh, unforgiving, rugged, and unsympathetic; the ascend is often very difficult. To be successful, one must follow these five steps:

1. It is what it is

Acknowledge the mountain for what it is – an obstacle. Identify the everyday challenges such as patients not returning when they should, lower margins, more competition and higher running costs. Ignoring your obstacles won't cause them to go away. Everyone requires help getting up the mountain. -Even the most skilled climbers still need a harness, a relay device and suitable shoes.

2. Choose to conquer it

Decision-making is the most visible example of the use of power in an organization. Making the correct decisions can be the difference between success and failure, just as it can be the difference between life and death on the mountain. You, the business owner, are the only one who can effect change.

3. Have a planned approach

Identifying the obstacle and choosing to conquer it only gets you halfway up the mountain. Eye care business owners can embrace innovative technologies to help increase customer spending, build loyalty, reduce admin time and strengthen their online presence. The correct strategy and using the best equipment raise the probability of success 10fold.

4. Don't take unnecessary risk

Just because taking risks is necessary to achieve challenging goals doesn't mean you should undertake them needlessly. The best way to minimize business risk is by parenting with suppliers that have a proven track record, excellent products and a helpful support service. Avoid the one-hit wonder fly-by-nights.

5. Commit

It is one thing to decide to climb a mountain; it is quite another to reach the summit. It may be challenging and uncomfortable, but commit to the goal and believe in the value of the objective.
