With gas prices soaring, foreclosures at staggering levels, & general upheaval worldwide to name a few, the slow trudge of the economy to try to become somewhat stable makes news daily. People think, worry, & focus on things such as these & more. While it is important to be aware of issues at hand in the world, & your local area more specifically, we need to put these things into perspective. I’ve heard many times the phrase ‘focus on the things you can change, affect, or control-not the things you can’t, for it is wasted effort’. If everyone would follow this policy & DO what they can WITH what they can, the world would be a happier place, especially given the issues people deal with in this day & age.
For example, businesspeople are always looking to make changes for the better (or at least they should be because things never stop changing-if you don’t think so, good luck with that!). They might think to themselves, how can their company bring in more revenue, despite the economy being in this state? Or how can they cut costs & help their bottom line? What goals can they set & what actions can be taken to put them in motion & achieve the anticipated outcome?
If you’re at your wits end with frustration on how to process & progress with these thoughts, go back to the basics. Set aside a reasonable amount of time, with other colleagues if you can (because two heads are better than one, or at least we hope so!), where you can brainstorm together. Write down your goals-short & long term, who is responsible for carrying them out, & how you plan to accomplish them. Be reasonable; setting outrageous goals will only fuel your frustration fire. Think outside the box & look at things you normally don’t; they may have more purpose than you think in reaching your goals.
We have clients that have asked themselves the same questions above, & have been just as frustrated. We worked together to come up with their ‘lucky charm‘-whatever solution that best fit their needs & helped them to meet their goals. It could be Managed Print Services, Docuware, a multifunction unit that handles multiple tasks, or many other options. Most people are not familiar with some of our solutions, but once they are, they wish they had known about them sooner, or are at least glad they have taken advantage of them at all. It’s one thing for us to say this, but to come from the customer-who you would rather hear from-is another entirely. We at Corporate Business Systems encourage you to see the benefits of what we can do for you, or your business. Before you talk to us, take a few moments to listen to others in the videos below who may be in the same or a similar position as yourself, & how they were able to take advantage of what we have to offer by cutting costs, making their jobs easier, & generally making a good business decision:
