In The Jungle, Tigers Starve Last!

When the sun comes up in the jungle, you’ll never find a Tiger sleeping. Tigers have a strict regimen of daily hunting. If a tiger hasn’t started by sunrise they are missing out. Tigers hunt every day. A tiger doesn’t distinguish hunting days and it makes no difference how hungry they are. Full stomach… hunt to keep their hunting skills active.

Tigers have a system for hunting. Their system for hunting is why you rarely see a hungry tiger. They were taught a system of hunting when they were a cub and it’s a system they can repeat and a system that works. No other animal in the jungle wonders what the tiger is up to. When another animal sees a tiger they know they are hunting. They expect it. In the front cover of my book The Hungry Business Owners Guide To Creating Customers For Life I ask the question “do sharks need motivation? No! They get up early, bite things, chase things, be scary while constantly reminding everyone they’re a FREAKING shark.”  

What’s your system for selling? Did you know that the average first sales call of the day happens at 10:20 am? Who would voluntarily use a system like that? Part of my system includes a calendar. I don’t violate what’s in the calendar. I schedule time to read, time for client service, time to prospect and time to write. I created this calendar in late December. My calendar has had slight modifications and for the most part is the same today as it was in late December. My calendar is a tool. Any tool not used at all or used incorrectly tends to produce poor results.

With the economic forecasts we hear it’s clear that some of us need to get reacquainted with what hunting looks like and create a plan to get better at it. No one wants to starve.  No one gets to starve on my watch! When is your next hunting trip scheduled for? If it isn’t set up in your calendar in ink we need to talk. I’m looking for both Tigers and Sharks!  

‘My name is Steven Clauson.  I coach people who want help getting where they want to be.  The people I coach are typically already taking action, getting results and ask what’s next and what actions to take to make an even greater impact.  They aren’t afraid to ask for help.  How can I help you?  What actions are you taking?  Those who have a plan and implement that plan lead the pack.  Planning, preparing to win and taking appropriate action means you hear the word “YES” more than ever. Only if you are one of the few willing to take action, do what’s required and play full out are you likely to hear the word yes more often.  People hearing the word “YES” are winners on the playing field because they play full out and dominate.  For these people results matter.  Tired of results less than you know you can produce?  Call me at 916-230-0176 or visit
