As John approached the long sidewalk, he heard Duke, his neighbor’s dog, wailing to the top of his lungs. He hurried his steps to see what was going on – and he saw Duke laying there on the porch, head turned to the sky, ears flopped back…and giving his best hound dog wail.
As business owners, sometimes we are like Duke. We wail to anyone who will listen. We gripe to our friends. We complain around the kitchen table. But we don’t move; we are stuck. Lying on the nail. It doesn’t hurt bad enough to do something different. We just wail, complain, and bellyache about the “if only’s” that are holding us back.
