Business is Nothing if Not a Game of Snakes and Ladders

As a child, I quite enjoyed the game of Snakes and Ladders. It would give me an unusual high on climbing up a ladder, and a seriously low feeling whenever I found myself gobbling down by a snake. Come to think of it, this childhood game holds much relevance to the business scenario. Let me tell you how.

In the business as in the game, after you set the dice rolling, you don’t have much control over the market conditions, your competition’s moves and for that matter, even your luck. As you go up the game board or higher up on your business path, the competition increases, the challenges and the risks double up. One wrong move, and you risk falling down. The higher your position is, the worse is the fall.

But, you don’t leave the game halfway, do you? The same way, quitting is not the option. You must move ahead, despite all odds. However, being an entrepreneur, you cannot leave things to the destiny. Stay alert to know your competition, market and customer preference, analyze your competitors’ strengths and weaknesses and ramp up your products and services. This will definitely make you stay and go higher in the business game.
