Getting in the Flow

Getting in the Flow

How do I start?

What do jet streams, gulf streams and drafting have to do with business?  It’s all about getting in the flow.

My husband, myself, and our children were born and raised in the Dayton, Ohio area. When growing up, we learned about Orville and Wilbur Wright, flight, wind resistance, and aerodynamics.  I recall a story about the Wright brothers in school of how they discovered you could go faster on a sled if you duck your head down because there was less wind resistance.

Probably doesn’t sound too amazing these days, but that’s just the start of it when getting in the flow, less resistance.

We also know that you can go faster if you’re in an airplane when the pilot is following the jet stream.  Same thing with the gulf stream…if you’re in the gulf stream….you’re in the flow, and things will flow faster.

Knowing just a wee bit of this aerodynamics thing…(a lot less the Wright brothers), and because my husband is a big Nascar fan, I also know that when you travel down I-75 behind a big rig, you can save on your fuel by drafting him.  The big rig is taking the lead with blocking the wind, giving you more energy, while you use fewer resources.

So what’s all of this “flow” got to do with business?

This analogy can be used in your business.  There are those in business who have paved the way for success….they have blocked the wind, gotten in the flow of the jet or gulf streams, and you can draft off of their success.  You will have less resistance in starting, and use fewer resources, because it’s already been done.

Successful entrepreneurs have already done the trials, and will have included the stats of what works, and what doesn’t.  While developing your skills with this process, you can also incorporate some of those things that you just can not live without in your own business.  It is your business, but find a reputable mentor who will advise you.  Look carefully at all business particulars before you decide.

If you find this distasteful, remember you only have to do this until you’re standing firmly on your own ground; then you can freely chart your own course.  You have to lay your foundation before you build your house.

This is a great way to get started, and see what works well for you, as you’re getting into your own flow.

  1. Hi BG,
    Really well explained. I like how you beautifully connected the flow concept from flying right into business. It does make sense to look carefully around before you venture into any business. I experienced this and I have finally found the right business – thank God. But before that it has costed me money, stress and also lots of sleepless nights.
