Thanks to folks like Edison, Jung, Einstein, and Winfrey, weve all heard of the Aha! Moment. Its that beautiful flash of insight an epiphany! that comes to us when were busy doing something else. Or perhaps more often, happily unbusy, doing absolutely nothing of quantitative value.
That flash of insight is, literally, a divine gift especially when it comes to your business. It can create products, improve services, open up doors, unleash opportunities, or simply give you a solution to a problem thats been nagging you mercilessly.
Its a gift, but its not the goal. An Aha! is only the beginning.
An A-Ha! is your goal.
Tom-AHA-toes, Tom-A-HA-toes. Whats the diff?
How many true Aha! Moments do you suppose youve had in your life time? Three? Seventeen? Six-million-four-hundred-thousand-nine-hundred-seventy-two?
Now how many of those Aha! Moments have you had the time, tools, or energy to pursue?
Sure, maybe they got as far as your notebook, or you gushed them out in full detail to your spouse, best friend, or business partner (in our case, its all the same person!), but have you ever been able to cultivate even just one of your brilliant bolts to its full and thunderous destiny one that would deliver a boom to your bank account?
Not easy, my friend. Not easy as all.
So while the Aha! Moment can be a thrilling, delightful experience, it can also squash your will to launch or grow your own business. Because too may Aha! Moments without the means or guidance to pursue them leads to painful even hopeless conclusions.
Why bother? I cant do anything about it right now anyway. Great another million dollar idea Ill never set into action. I hate my brain. I hate my business. I hate what Ive done with my life!
Wait! Before You Pull a Pandora and Leave Hope Locked Up in a Box Forever Meet the A-Ha.
More than just an alternative spelling (or a ploy by the Hyphen Industry to infiltrate your favorite sayings), the A-Ha is an exquisite hybrid of high-quality wisdom, knowledge, jubilation, and experience. It:
1. Invokes the Aha! in all its untainted glory.
2. Invites you to see the two words that comprise the Aha! The gentle, singular, user-friendly article A. That simplest expression of gratified laughter, Ha.
3. Bridges the connection (with the hyphen) to reveal the ultimate dynamic equation:
INSIGHT + LAUGHTER = A-HA!
Of course, laughter IS happiness in action, so Insight + Action = A-Ha! works, too.
So What Does the A-Ha Mean for YOUR Business? For most entrepreneurs, ideas and insights are never in short supply. But imagine if you picked your favorites be selective! and attached strategic, bliss-infused ACTIONS to them on a consistent basis.
Starting to see the light?
Bold Insight plus Joy-filled Action.
Thats the golden ticket. Stick that formula into your small biz arsenal, and before you know it, youll be laughing all the way to the bank.
