Common Mistake Made By Entrepreneurs When Going For A Goal
In my experience as a coach I have learned that the most common mistake made by many entrepreneurs is that: they do not review their plans.
We live in a society where we are so used to getting what we want, things going our way that as soon as we face a challenge we lose interest, we QUIT, without even reviewing what has gone wrong!
During my training to become an NLP Practitioner, I learned a model that I used to this very day and I share it with my clients, this is the T.O.T.E Model.
T.O.T.E stands for Test, Operate, Test, Exit; this is based on computer systems and the idea behind is as follows:
We have a plan, we carry it out and see whether it works or not.
On the one hand, if it works, we exit and that is our goal achieved.
On the other hand, if it doesn’t work, we test again, all this really means is that we do something different, i.e. we review our plan, we see what worked and what didn’t work and improve any areas of weakness, before we can test again.
We repeat this until we get the results we want.
With this in mind, the core idea is that we must keep trying and trying until we get the results we want, review them again and again, and again.
So, in a nutshell what we should be done during any project or goal is to make a plan, do our plan and review our plan, until we get the results we desire.
