I was a Skilled tradesman for 30 years, and during my time working as a wood and metal pattern maker for the foundry or cast-able products industry I found that you can build a pattern more than one way ,
For example If a blueprint were to be place in front of five different craftsman I know that the job would get done. Five patterns would be made and for the most part using the same tools. However, the techniques used by each craftsman would most definitely be different
Same Goes for:
Fact is: It is the same for business building .
There are many tools to be used and each have a proper use . The hammer and saw to a Carpenter would be the same as a computer to a Internet based network marketer. A nail or screw or some type of fastener. Could be the same as a auto responder is used to keep your contacts together .
We all have tools that are needed. They are used to make our job easier. So use the proper tool and make sure you take the time to learn how to use it correctly .
An example that I would run into quite often would be . A new person in the shop would make a statement that they knew how to operate a industrial table saw. Knowing in their mind that they didn’t know how to do it, however felt that if they were to tell the truth about it they may be looked down upon , so they would proceed with apprehension to the saw.
Look it over to find the on off switch, in finding the switch turn on the saw . Confused as to how to hold the piece of wood, they would timidly place it onto the table of the saw. That is the point that I personally would step in and ask the question again.
Question re-stated: Do you know how to use this saw? Now that they fully see the potential of removing a finger or hand to the power of this 14 inch spinning blade with 120 teeth on it that are eagerly awaiting ripping something apart the new operator would reevaluate their personal knowledge.
And would say no I truly don’t know how to use this properly. I then would give them a training lesson on how to use it. Or if I didn’t have the time I would assign someone to train this person. And the job would get done .
Now if that person were to have asked for the training in the beginning, we would have save time in getting the job done. Also it would have allowed the person watching over to be at ease in knowing that their trainee does know what they are doing and allow for a relief in sending them onto their next assignment .
We have all heard the saying learn to walk before you learn to run . Utilize the Trainers around you as in YouCanBuild.it to help in making the right tool choice and how to use it correctly and your Business and Life will grow.
There are no better people to learn from than those that have been there, They have studied the systems and know that the systems change on a daily basis and as a mastermind keep in tune with the changing social networking media to help keep you informed.
Lets all save marketing time, and work together.
