Do you get “gadget fever?” It’s usually noted by an extreme amount of jealousy upon seeing the latest gadget your friend has just purchased and then a quick and swift movement to the store to buy one for yourself.
If that’s you, it might be time to take a quick look around at all of the gadgets you’ve accumulated and ask if they are really what you need.
Before you jump in with the latest gadgets for your business, it’s a wise move to take stock of what you really need. Too often, contractors are buying tools or equipment simply because someone else had it and not because you need it.
If it’s been awhile since you last took inventory of the hardware and software you have in your business, you’re probably a few versions behind the curve. However, that might be ok. As long as you have what you need to operate an effective and efficient business, you’re in good shape.
Technology changes all the time. Things become more complex and more intricate all the time, so it is a necessity to know what you need to run your business. After all, your goal in your business is to create success not buy the latest software.
Don’t buy something just for the “glitz” of having it. Buy on substance. In the end, you can buy all the toys you want after you’ve achieved your profit goals.
