You Get Out of It What You Put Into It
We’ve all heard it before. “You’ll get out of it what you put into it”, but what does it mean? Well, that can be different for everyone, but when it comes down to it, it’s related to Newton’s third law of motion… “every action has an opposite or equal reaction.”
The old adage sounds simple enough, but just because the concept is simple doesn’t mean it’s easy. It will require work, participation. dedication, attention and the right attitude.
When it comes to our businesses, if you don’t put in the effort, then you won’t get the results you want. This can apply to just about anything, your health, relationships, etc. Speaking of relationships, this definitely applies to networking groups such as The International Detailing Association (IDA), The Detail Mafia, or any one of a number of detailing related Facebook groups out there.
These groups provide a wealth of knowledge, but as I’ve said before, you can’t just make withdrawals, you have to make deposits too in order for it to work for everyone. That doesn’t mean you have to give back an equal amount to what you get, but it does mean you need to be an active participant. Sitting on the sidelines isn’t going to help anyone. Getting engaged, learning from others and then sharing your own experiences and knowledge is what’s going to improve our detailing community.
Want to get something out of something? Get engaged, put time into it. It is that simple!
