Keep it simple. Focus on the fundamentals.

Keep it simple

Focus on the fundamentals.

Canadian tennis hero, Felix Auger-Aliassime, at the Australian Open this week came back from losing the first two sets in a five-set match to suddenly overpower his opponent for the next three sets and win the match. What happened?

“I decided to keep it simple,” he said. “The first two sets I was trying too hard to analyze his game and find a strategy to beat him, making it complicated. It’s tennis, just hit the ball inside the lines.”

Good strategic advice for entrepreneurs too. Keep it simple. Focus on the fundamentals.

I’ve written thousands of articles and two books of advice for entrepreneurs (which I recommend you read, of course), but it can all be summarized in six simple words: Have a plan. Avoid the mistakes.

Go back to the fundamental principles that still apply and are consistent with your vision, mission and values. The challenges will be complicated enough without your help.

Be better. Do Better. Be an Enlightened Entrepreneur.
