Are you pecking in the wrong place?

 

This was my question for a woodpecker who flew into our chimney and was drilling, early this morning, on our fireplace box.  Both annoying for me, and useless for him, he stopped after a couple of times, because there was nothing in it for him.

 

Is that how we are in our home business?  Are you pecking in the wrong place, or the wrong “pecking order?” We often look for gold in the wrong places, or at the wrong time.

 

So, how do we avoid this?

 

Look for clues.  Ask yourself questions.

  • Who is doing what you want to be doing, and doing it successfully?
  • Is this opportunity still worthwhile, or has it run the course?
  • Will I be tenacious like the woodpecker and keep drilling for gold?
  • Am I able to put my own spin on it to keep it interesting for me?
  • Do I have to follow a strict “pecking order?”

 

Following leaders who have credibility and who believe in you and your success is necessary.

Getting in at the right time is important.

Adding you own creativity factor is crucial for staying power.

Putting your steps in place, in the right order is elementary.  Putting step 3 before step 2 will cause a problem.

Be like the woodpecker and keep pecking at it.  You may have to drill deep.  Don’t lose heart.

Success will be evident if you’re drilling for gold in the right place.
