“It ‘s no use saying, “We are doing our best.” You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary.” – Winston Churchill

Have you ever heard someone say “We are doing our best.” when another person asks for why the results are less than expected for a project? Was that reason accepted for falling short of a goal?

As a successful entrepreneur, I know there are 1 of 2 things which I get at the end of an action step – either a result or an excuse. Which do you think I classify “We are doing our best.” as among these two options? You guessed it – an excuse.

As the business owner, the best someone has may still fall short of what’s needed to accomplish the task at hand. What do you do then to reach your principle target? You must do whatever is necessary to be successful. It’s the only way to get where you want to go and lead your team to accomplish action steps they never knew could happen.

Often doing whatever is necessary will mean stretching and growing the skill sets of your current team members needed to achieve the expected level. This could be through education or even just the on the job experience of rising to the challenge to find and develop the skills needed. As this is accomplished, the person ‘s “best” when they made the original statement is now a distant memory in their rear view mirror of life as they have established a new best.

You can also use your resourcefulness to find others who are able to help you achieve you goal. This could mean more assistance for your team by adding additional team members. It could mean different team members with more specialized skills to accomplish a particular task. It could mean reaching out to mentors and coaches to get needed input on ways to handle a particular challenge. Whatever it is, do what is necessary to achieve your expected result.

Adopting the mindset to do whatever is necessary is a keystone for your success in your life and your business. You will go back to it repeatedly when the challenges popup. You must do whatever is necessary and find ways to reach your goals. It is part of breaking the chains which have held you down. Accepting anything less sells you, your family, and your business short.

Do It Different!
