If Stuff Does Not Flush Just Use A Bucket

Our office had a very critical problem. A problem that affected productivity and employer satisfaction. It was so critical that it became the primary topic of discussion around the office. The problem was that our company toilet could not flush! We had tried everything, from jiggling the toilet handle to restricting the amount of toilet paper utilized but nothing could fix the toilet it just could not flush. So it was no surpise that after weeks of non-flushing action employee frustration had overflowed (pun intended) into our monthly meeting. The cause of the problem was clear. The water pressure required for flushing the toilet simply was not sufficient. Some blamed low water pressure on the toilet design while others blamed it on poor plumbing work. Whatever the problem was, we needed a solution and fast. Solutions ranged from replacing the entire toilet system to tweaking the toilet plumbing.
In the middle of the solution marathon debate, someone whispered “why don’t we use a bucket of water?” The room froze with silence and then laughter and almost immediately resumed the intense debate…then another person suggested the bucket idea and another and yet another.
By afternoon time there was a bucket of water in the toilet which temporarily allevaited our flushing problem. And then a few days later the entire toilet system was replaced with a new and more powerful one. Our companies flushing problem had been solved temporarily and permanently.
As an entrepreneur, there are times where you have to make the bucket decisions. The decisions that seem rugged and extemporaneous, but allow you temporarily solve a problem while searching for the long term solution. Unfortunately, many entrepreneurs get caught up in finding the long term toilet replacement solutions, failing to realize that if shit does not flush, they can actually use a bucket.
Wishing You Extreme Success,
