About a century ago, two psychologists named Yerkes and Dodson laid the groundwork for a concept that today is known as “flow.” Getting into a flow state is considered the secret to business accomplishments.
What is flow, and why is it important to a franchise owner? Yerkes and Dodson found that whenever you try to accomplish a goal—in business or in any other aspect of life—there are three things that can happen.
You can become disengaged, become frazzled (overwhelmed), or get into a flow state. The “sweet spot” of flow is the target because it overcomes the problems of being bored and unmotivated and of facing challenges that take you too far out of your comfort zone.
Thankfully, disengagement as a first-time franchise owner is not something you have to worry about, but some franchisees might get overwhelmed in the absence of support. That’s why Hot Dog on a Stick offers training , operational support, and national advertising.
