“Better marketing in less time”
Estimated read time: 1 minute & 31 seconds
The parallels between business and dating.
It’s taken me over 3 years.
But I’ve started dating again.
The reason I waited so long is because I wasn’t ready.
I was in a 7+ year relationship that didn’t end well.
It left me jaded about dating again.
Another relationship felt like a distraction.
That it would slow me down in the pursuit of my goals.
Until I learned the concept of 1+1=4.
The concept is exactly that.
That the right person can be a catalyst for growth.
Not a hindrance.
If you haven’t found that person yet.
I hope that you do.
It’s a game changer for your personal and professional life.
The biggest mistake people make on a date?
They don’t pay attention.
- Did their pupils dilate?
- Did they touch your arm?
- Did their tone rise a little?
- Did they laugh at your dumb joke?
Words are a fraction of the message.
The message is always in the medium.
But did you notice them?
Paying attention is the prerequisite for connection.
In dating and business.
I’ve never used a dating app.
I’m a glutton for punishment.
Just kidding… or am I?
On an app, you become a commodity.
Easily replaced (or swiped) by the next person.
I never want to be easily replaceable.
And neither should you.
Being willing to approach someone is a differentiator.
It helps me stand apart.
I have found this to be true in my personal and professional life.
I will shoot my shot all day long.
I believe it’s what has given me the edge.
In every area of my life.
That I’m willing to be rejected.
What’s your differentiator?
Take home point…
- The right relationship is 1+1=4.
- The message is in the medium.
- Shoot your shot… it will help you stand apart.
