Truth is Greater Than Fiction
However, if you believe "TRUTH IS GREATER THAN FICTION," then you can act on that truth and redefine your business for a better outcome.
For example, if an unwanted event occurs in the real world of your business, you can prevent it from happening in most cases, due to the fact that all events, whether wanted or unwanted, have a root cause—the TRUTH as to why they occur.
If an unwanted event turns out to be predictable, then it is PREVENTABLE—and you can STOP it!
Just like a Hollywood movie you've seen before, you know what scene is coming next. An unwanted event that occurs in your business will tend to REPEAT, unless you get involved as the director and discontinue the bad performance. By implementing a system of control in your business, you can ensure a “bad movie” doesn't replay!
On the entire list of TRUTHS IN BUSINESSES above, in our business we have put in systems to either stop predictable/preventable events, or to minimize their effect on our operations—that's the TRUTH!
Hope you won't let the fictional ideas and myths others promote in the business world get in the way of the truthful things you CAN, maybe DO know, as you see events good and bad play out every day in your business.
Unfortunately, those who want to believe FICTION is real, will never deal with the TRUTH, which CAN be tested.
Did I mention? Great systems work!
