Protect Against Business Failure

By Noel Murphy


Protect against business failure by ensuring the quality and clarity of your business thinking beats your competitors.

Consider the following questions:

What are your business objectives for the next 12 months?

Will you recognise when you have achieved them?

If you achieved them would it cause you a problem? Would it cause anyone else a problem? If yes, how will you deal with this?

Which of your skills will be most useful in achieving your objectives?

What resources excluding your skills do you have that will be most useful?

Is there anyone that can help you to achieve the results you want?


If there is how can they help specifically and how can you motivate them?


If you were to sabotage achieving your objectives what might you do (e.g. procrastination) and how can you anticipate and prevent this?

A Few Jokes
Seamus Parfrey

 By Seamus Parfrey  

 Joke 1:

A young accountant, straight out of college, applies for a job advertised in the Irish Examiner. He is interviewed by the owner of a small business who has built it up from scratch.


"I need someone with an accounting degree," says the man, "but mainly I'm looking for someone to do my worrying for me."


"How do you mean?" says the accountant.        


"I have lots of things to worry about, but I want someone else to worry about money matters."


"OK," says the accountant. "How much are you offering?"


"You can start on fifty thousand," says the owner.


"Fifty thousand euro!. How can a business like this afford to pay so much?"


"That," says the owner, "is your first worry."



Joke 2:

An accountant for a manufacturing group was concerned about anomalies in stock levels. He thought someone might be pinching stock but he couldn't prove it. He had his eye on one shifty-looking individual who every day drove his old truck out of the factory with the load covered by a tarpaulin.
