|With what do you associate the word “profit“?
My previous unchecked assumptions about the word ‘profit’ and what it represents:
-the one(s) with the profit “won”, and therefore others “lost”
-someone had to have been taken advantage of somehow, for profit to result
-it’s “extra” money, which is evil for anyone to have since there are starving children in the world; how unfair of anyone to have “extra”
-if I like profit, I’ll turn in to Scrooge; nobody likes Scrooge
My revised, updated assumptions of the word ‘profit’, since becoming a “Profit First Professional”:
-if I don’t pay for me, someone else has to; ensuring profit increases the likelihood of sustainability
-ensuring profit doesn’t mean jack-doodle about what I do with that money; how presumptuous of people to assume nefarious/completely morally bankrupt purposes for the profit, anyway!
-‘profit’ can actually translate to, I respect my business, my family, and myself; respect in action, especially if I tend it consciously and considerately
