The Difference Between Knowing and Doing

One of the great secrets to getting better results in your business is the difference between knowing something and doing something.

j0398745[1]Very often when you read a business book, blog or article, you may say to yourself, “I know that already.” And, you probably do.

The question is not if you know it – but rather, are you doing it? Are you using the knowledge?

As we build our strategy for better business results we must USE all we know and apply it to where our business is and where we want to take it to.

Next time you read about a business strategy or process improvement and recognize it as conventional wisdom, take the next step and try to list the ways that you and your company are actually demonstrating it.  You might be surprised what you find.

Ask Yourself…

Are we doing this?

Are we consistent?

How can we do this better?

The key here is the “WE”. Very often we assume that since we know what to do, others in our organization also know – and it is not always true. The key is to share what you know with your team and to act on it – together.
