Working Hard

The fate of an entrepreneur is not easy. You have to work hard. However, since you worked on most of your time, there must be a price to pay. The first victim was your social life. Time for dating, family, even to have free not you would have on the early days of running your business .. This might be a quiet life.

In these circumstances if you are very lucky to have a girlfriend or a wife who faithfully accompanied through thick and thin. Because being an entrepreneur is also the problem of durability. Like clouds in the rainy season. After the rain came down, the sky will be bright again. No compensation. The harder you work, then you will get lucky. We had a fellow, his name Joko Mulyono Apiko. He was, “just” tabloid reporter in Muslim families, Fikri name. As an employee – if you follow the theory of Robert T. quadrant Kiyosaki – thanks to our encouragement, and “interpersonal skills”, to communicate, he urges us to be a journalist “semi-business” in a sense, the proper functioning and journalistic skills to write soft lobby advertorial. Although initially somewhat reluctantly, he playing such roles copywriter, author of the article in the tabloid advertorial soft (meaning: the rubric nuanced promotion, with two kinds of compensation: direct sales within a certain minimum amount, or semi-ad). Apiko, though still love journalistic profession, began his new duties.

The result? Unusually for a reporter during a four-year work, purely as a journalist. Apiko successfully achieve its goals. He did work hard, and rather sacrifice his time for the family. Not only that. He was “bold face” dicibiri as a “journalist matre” (materialist, Pen.), Because the article more selective in the issues of “nutritious” alias could result in “direct sales” or “semi-advertorial”. As a result of continued, predictable. Of “messing around” so seriously. His boss, chairman tabloid Fikri, instead targeting a certain amount per month should he accomplish. target, is achieved, even exceeded many times. What he did, everyone in the company know.

Although the risk of being harassed, Apiko resilient. The show must go on. What they do, inspire other business units under the same umbrella of a holding.
“Thank God, my wife is very understanding. For hard work, I could save a considerable value compared to my colleagues on my level. I could buy a motorcycle in cash, in the second year of my work. That’s something I did not imagine at all, that I can afford it. “That Apiko, that because they still love the journalistic profession, claimed to have not only been using half of the potential enterprenership was in him.

“Someone who works 16 hours a day will get to the place I want to accomplish two times faster than the people who work 8 hours a day.”

In fact, the ‘privatization’ became so popular in the past decade, suggesting that they “wash hands” of the task of creating a horrible job.
Another fact, mergers, acquisitions, and restructuring in the private sector more often led to mass layoffs. So who gets the burden of creating jobs? it must bear the burden of its own INDIVIDUAL. Every person, create your own job! Every person, ready or not, conditions pushed into entrepreneurship.
To select which one: to prepare mentally and entrepreneurial skills or, when the time comes, had odd jobs, trying to become entrepreneurs after the “frozen out” of the position of “payday people”!

Be aware, this phenomenon. That entrepreneurship, which is not recognized a quarter century ago, when it is taught as a subject at universities around the world. In the United States alone, hundreds of colleges to teach it. Is this really a new phenomenon?

Not exactly so. We are actually born as entrepreneurs. Courage, creativity, and initiative – it is the nature of a person from birth. That’s natural, inherent within you!

They just teach you how to run a business for someone else! If you follow a course in accounting, which is taught is how you count other people’s money.

Not his time talking about the advantages of technology. Let us talk entrepreneurial excess. We need entrepreneurs to create a great company with the latest findings of the technology!

FOCUS

The logic of “focusing”, to borrow a solar phenomenon. This masterpiece of God, a powerful energy source, which illuminates the Earth each hour with millions of kilowatts of energy. Anyone, can “sun shower” for hours with risks lightly.

What about laser? A beam of light, energy is weak. It just takes a few kilowatts of energy but can be focused into a beam of coherent light. Of a beam of laser light, the findings of scientists can use it to cut steel up to kill cancer cells.

Switch on a business conversation. You can create the same effect: a strong ability to dominate the laser like a market. That is what we refer to as “focused action”.

When a business becomes the focus, it will lose its power. The effort was to be like the sun, spreading its energy is too much product on the market that is too broad.
Concentration, the ability to give full attention to the task at hand, and in the long run, concentrate on a career, is one aspect of the focus. But not only that. Other terms, the intensity. Intensity involves the ability to deliver large amounts of energy on the task at hand. Run it as a habit, will improve your career. Analogously, the focus has the same effect on a person’s job, like a magnifying lens that is held on a piece of paper on a sunny day. Holding the lens with the right angle, making the rays concentrate at one point, capable of burning paper.
Priority, included in the idea of ​​focus. Do not hesitate to change and put the most important as number one when something unexpected appears. Work on a priority basis.

You know, what is the secret number one success? Priority.
Helen Gurley Brown

Determine what the top priorities in the work to think carefully to what the company is hiring you. Many people make the mistake of working hard for each task they face, without or with very little into account the importance of those tasks. At the end of the day, they will be very tired, praising themselves for all the work already completed. Unfortunately, there are already unknowingly pass over the important work (Important) and urgency (urgent). Important, perhaps could not in uturan top, but urgent, something that is related to the deadline, which could not, he comes first or something bad blocking.

Place it letters, memos and warnings about all the other tasks are waiting in the binders with a priority A, B, and C.
Alan Lakein, Time Management Consultant

Discuss the focus, we can quote Eugene Grisham in the Achievement Factor, the world’s best-selling book. He talked about the success factors of interviews with many years of successful leaders of the world. It’s just one conclusion: “To a great success in a field, whatever the subject, it takes at least ten years by staying focused on the field.”

We strongly believe the conclusion of the book. We have evidence, we know a considerable, since graduated from high school, live from the trading and never moved except on the business of household products are very popular with mothers. In fact, less than ten years, he was successful in that they do. That’s the power of focus.
Tub of water that drops a stone, drop by drop; day in and day out, year in, in time, we will be surprised at the fact that the stone has become concave because the water droplets.
