If Debonairs disappeared tomorrow, who would miss them?
Could you find a replacement pizza?
A replacement place to work?
What about your personal marketing, though?
If you disappeared tomorrow, would the customers you call on miss you?
The places you are applying for a job?
The guys on the board of directors you sit on?
The users who call tech support where you answer the phone?
I spent an hour on the phone with Cell C support last week.
The guy I talked to was named Seven [Gotta love that]. Seven would be missed.
In fact, every time I call Cell C, I hope it’s Seven on the phone.
The problem with fitting in and being a cog in the machine is that cogs are intentionally designed to be easily replaceable.
When one breaks, you just get another. No one particularly misses the old one.
Do you want to be in a place where you will be easily replaceable or do you want to be in a place where you will be missed when you are gone.
This is not only applicable to work or business, its applicable everywhere.
