Business Tips 101: Be a hunter

huntersMy business tip for today is… be a hunter who patiently and persistently hunts down his prey until he gets it. To survive in a tough business competition, you have to become a patient and persistent hunter who never stop until he achieves his goal.

Many business owners and entrepreneurs suffer failure because they don’t act like hunters. Managers and marketers fail because they don’t have the eye of a hunter who always keeps sight on its prey. Of course, I mean prey as your goal, such as your business productivity, profitability and stability.

Hunters know how to patiently wait for the right time to ambush and catch their prey. These hunters include lions, tigers and other cats that are fast and furious. There are also hunters who persistently follow their prey until they catch them. These hunters include wolves, foxes and other dogs that have a great stamina.

And of course, humans could be better hunters than animals. People can use tools to hit the bull’s-eye. And when it comes to business, entrepreneurship, management and marketing, we can use smarter strategies, techniques and tactics to achieve our target.

So now you have to ask yourself… are you a good hunter? Are you always keeping an eye on your prey or are you always being distracted and losing focus? Do you stick to your business plan and concentrate on achieving your certain business goal? If not, then you have to act like a hunter.

    Thanks for this post. Parang ganito rin yung sinasabi ng iba na dapat ay meron kang killer instinct :) Kasi kahit anong business pa yan, basta nawala ka sa focus, soon mawawala din yan. Kaya dapat palagi kang nandyan to grab any opportunities.
