sHave you ever felt like you have the responsibility to push your company forward, but you’ve lost the insight to do so? That’s okay, of course, especially when you have many paths to choose from and aren’t sure which one to take. However, eventually you’ll need to start moving towards success again, and the two tips below can help you get into gear.

Stick to Your Routine

Bad ideas come from sleep deprivation, pressure, stress, and burn out. If any of these things are happening in your life, it’s likely that you’re not doing your best work. Instead of pushing yourself constantly when you feel the urge to do so and then burning out again, create a schedule and stick to it the best you can from the get-go. For example, if you choose to work three nights a week on a special project, only work those three nights. Spend the other four nights doing something else or spending time with your family instead. This will help you think of the right things during the right times and discern the good ideas from the bad.

Treat Your Customers like Royalty

When you think that the solution to your company’s stagnation lies in bringing more customers to the doors, think about treating your current customers even better than you currently treat them. Word of mouth travels quickly, and when you treat your customers like they are your everything, they will spread the good word about you. Treating them with respect only comes back to you tenfold. On the flip side, when you don’t treat them well, you will lose more than just a customer or two.

By listening to what your customers have to say and by sticking closely to a routine that you know works for you will help you pave that golden road to success.
