Is your business a turtle?

by | Mar 30, 2021 | 0 comments

A while ago, someone had described me as being a turtle. Not for the traditional way most of us think of us as a turtle, with the primary reason being slow. 

No, she described me this way as everything seems calm on the surface … everything is going smoothly, and then underneath it’s a crazy flapping of legs moving in all directions to try and move things forward in any and all directions. 

Not sure if you’ve seen some of the vet shows, when they are helping out one, they often place them on a container of some sorts, so they can examine them while looking they are not stuck a surface. These little (and big creatures) are flapping away trying to escape the spotlight and people looking at them. 

So, this had me thinking about businesses. Is yours one of these turtles? All well on the surface, but as soon as you peek underneath, the chaos is in full force, with trying to find clients, build your income, ideas up the wazoo and they have no strategic direction you can put them in?
