Its important to understand why some people achieve and some people stay on the sidelines. Blitz Inc reviews the differences in mentality between the losers and the winners. If we know what other people are doing who constantly lose, we will know what NOT to do! Welcome to Blitz Inc Reviews Losers...
Blitz Inc Reviews the Losers
In any sport or game, there are always going to be the losers. Try as they might, they lose. I'm not referring to those people. I'm referring to people who don't even try. The people who constantly make excuses for their setbacks and don't have the discipline to get back up are the losers. Failing is different. I've failed several times throughout my professional career, but I don't consider myself a 'loser'...I'm far from it. So let's talk about the losers for a minute. After you're through reading this post, be sure to visit this review of Blitz Inc Bellevue. You'll be sorry if you don't.
Throughout the course of any week, management at Blitz Inc reviews the performance of our staff and none of them do we consider 'losers.' After all, they are still working here. However, I would consider someone a loser who has many of the following characteristics: complaining, blaming, and whining. Furthermore, people who don't give something an honest effort I also consider losers. I'm not putting myself above anyone else here, as I used to be a 'loser.'
In grade school in Iowa, we were having some sort of Olympic competition - mainly just seeing who was the fastest and could throw things the furthest. I wasn't really excited about running, but I wasn't disinterested or anything, just fairly indifferent I suppose. We all lined up to race each other at the starting line and everyone got down into a starting stance. One of the officials (a teacher) fired the starting gun and off we went. About three-fourths of the way through the race, I was in dead last. So, I didn't see the point in continuing the race. I stopped running and started walking over to the spectators area and was immediately yelled at and ridiculed. I didn't understand it! Why was this a bad thing?! I got back on the field and trotted over to the finish line...but I didn't understand why it was a big deal. Shortly after, one of the 'popular' kids came over and told me not to be a wussy and to finish the race no matter what. He told me that ultimately no one would care who won or lost, but everyone would remember who quit.
This lesson stuck with me for the rest of my life. I didn't want to be known as a quitter. I didn't want to be known as weak. I'm a man and I finish what I start. My how our peer group affects us!
I still see people today who try something out, never give themselves a fighting chance by actually trying HARD, and then quit. I also see people who never take risks. They just stay with what's convenient or in their comfort zone, not that this is particularly bad, but one can never hope to win without taking a few risks here and there. After all, if you want something different, you have to do something that you haven't done.
I've started many companies and ventures in the past. Most failed, some did not. In my failures, I learned a ton! I found out more about myself by pushing my limits and learning about another industry. I know now that if I would have always stayed with what I knew and didn't jump into arenas less-known, I wouldn't have had those successes nor would I have developed myself at all. I wouldn't have had the failures either, but to me, the failures make success much more sweet.

Do you run your company fairly loosely? Blitz Inc reviews standards and expectations in your company. Having ground rules lets employees know where they stand and how to rise above. Welcome to the first installment of the Blitz Inc Review!
Blitz Inc Reviews 'Standards'
Having standards in your organization may seem like a very simple concept. However, you won't believe how many organizations and companies out there either don't have them, or don't stand by them. There needs to be a very standard set of expectations that everyone should follow. If not, identifying the top performers in your company may be very difficult. If there are no minimum standards, one person MAY look like they are contributing more than others - but are they even meeting the basic expectations of their position and/or job duties? Having standards alone won't necessarily help you or your company reach the next level, but it will keep sub-par performers from maintaining employment with you or your company.
So, if you don't have them...get them. Everyone should be on the same page with expectations. Attendance policies, production standards, etc. are what set the rules of the game. It's very easy to make the call when people do not meet the minimum expectations. The rules of the game do not and should not change with each player.
An employee at Blitz Inc comments on 'standards': "Back when we first got started, we sort-of just doing our best. Once we laid a firm foundation of standards, everyone (including the less-seasoned employees) seemed to rise to the occasion. We set an attendance/late policy that a couple of people tried to weasel around, but the management sent them home for the day. Needless to say, they were on time every day going forward." If someone in your company isn't adding value, they are slowing you down. Blitz Inc reviews standards on a bi-weekly basis with employees. This isn't to instill fear or anything, but it is to clearly communicate the expectations with everyone in the company. No one can say, "Well, I didn't know that." They did. Blitz Inc reviews standards frequently. For some additional tips on expectations and standards, be sure to visit Blitz Inc Reviews Advice from the Shark Tank.
Standards: A Blitz Inc Review
Expectations and standards can either motivate or demotivate a workforce pretty quickly. If you don't have them, you will demotivate. If you have them, you will motivate. If people don't know where they stand, the rules of the game aren't clear, and good employees won't know how to excel. This is primarily why we at Blitz Inc review standards bi-weekly...to drive performance.
After you have set the expectations and standards, you can then focus on promoting the right people to the right seats in your company. If you try to do so without having the set standards and expectations, it may create some anymosity between employees. You may even see an increase in employee performance like we have.
