Don’t think what’s the cheapest way to do it or what’s the fastest way to do it . . . think ‘what’s the most amazing way to do it.
~~ Richard Branson
I’ve been in the business world for a long time. I have often encountered organizations that start wanting to do what’s the cheapest way to do it or the fastest way to do it. They often feel that doing it the cheapest way will be better for the bottom line for profits. Don’t get me wrong, I am all about profits in a for profit business. Even in not for profit businesses or in government contracts, getting it for the cheapest isn’t necessarily the best for the constituents of those entities. In not for profit and governments, spending on the lowest bidder or the cheapest product or process often ends up in wasted money, money that was donated or taken from the people entrusting you to be good stewards of their money. This causes resentment, less donations, and frustration.
Doing it the fastest way is not always the best either. Trying to push a project or product out often leads to bad work that could require a lot of rework. I am a big proponent of Agile methodologies and the Lean Startup. The use of Minimum Viable Products, MVP, is very helpful in getting a product out to test the waters and get valuable feedback from users. In the podcast world we have many of us, myself included, that push out our first episodes quickly. They are not our best, they are not necessarily fantastic products, but we all learn as we grow. We improve the product as we grow. I hope my product, Goal Getting Podcast, has improved. I would assume if it hadn’t my listener wouldn’t have tripled since I started this Quote of the Day part of the podcast. However, being fast is not always best either.
I love Richard Branson’s quote and more importantly the thought. If you are going to do something – Be Amazing! What is the most amazing way to do it? What will make it monumental? What will make you stand out from everyone else that has done it? Shouldn’t we start with the idea of “What’s the Most Amazing Way to Do It”?
When you have a dream, when you set your goal, you should set your action plan. Set the How, the steps you have to do to get the goals you set. When you are thinking about The How, think about the most amazing way to do it. Think about the WOW HOW!
