Don't stop asking why

Beth Vadeboncoeur, Accountant

At a certain age, a child's favorite word is "why." Why do I have to take a bath? Why do I have to eat my vegetables? Why do I only see stars at night? A child's mind is always searching for answers and questioning why the world is the way it is.

As we grow older and become adults, we tend to stop asking those questions. We just accept things as they are.
Have you stopped asking "why" when it comes to your business? Do you have the mindset of "that is the way we have done it for years?"

As business owners and managers, we should be constantly asking questions. Are there improvements to be made in our production processes? Are there items or services that we purchases that aren't needed anymore? Are we missing opportunities to grow our business?

Take a minute to step back and look at your business. Are you missing opportunities for growth or savings by not taking a minute to ask why?

  1. Thanks for this, my father-in-law recently passed away and so we've been looking around at funeral arrangements in the Hamilton area so now we have an idea of what to look for. Thanks again.
