NOW & LATER
Success in the modern era requires the delivery of REAL value, right now, up-front, for free....and the payment for that effort will come later IF (and only if) your value was good enough. This is the new formula going forward for all people in all fields, regardless of the area of application. This applies to relationships, business, fitness, financial or improvement of any type. You reap later for the effort today - but ONLY of it was worth it to the other party. This flies in the face of how it USED to be and violates everyone’s sense of proper order. It doesn’t matter. THIS is how it is now. The post-internet world of social has opened up communication and competition on SUCH a scale that only the best of the best of the BEST will be paid now. Because those are the only ones WORTH paying. There is a phrase that says, “Be great! ....Because nothing else pays.” But this new model is not being taught in school, work or anywhere. All the traditional institutions are still seeking payment in exchange for their work. But the big secret that no one tells you is that the model has shifted to payment in exchange for VALUE. And the provider doesn’t get to determine what is valuable to the customer. Only the customer can do this. So the world is completely different from the way it was just a few short years ago. Stop competing on labor. Ditch your expectations. And start delivering SERIOUS unequivocal value to those whom you serve. If you are the best, you will be well compensated. If you are not, you will be drummed out. That may sound harsh....but it is fair. And how often can you say that about life?
