Why does a stuttering roadrunner say, “BBeep, BBeep!”?
Because — they are so dang excited about new business opportunities.
They know “BBeep” is the short version of, “Better Business evolving everyday Plan.” Or, we can shorten that to, simply, “Better Business Plan.”

You might be thinking, “What is a Better Business Plan?”
And — “What does that have to do with me, cartoons, and having fun?!”
My response, “Everything!”
Let Me Explain
Everything begins with YOU.
Your thoughts, your ideas, your dreams will, eventually, be the catalyst to Build Something — Special.
The reason WHY you want to Build Something — Special is so YOU can be your own boss, provide well for your Family, and achieve personal and business success to the level you choose.
Wile E Coyote and Roadrunner offer intrinsic lessons to teach us how to navigate the threats and compensate for weaknesses — so, that, we can build on our strengths and focus on the opportunities. (SWOT)
Having fun is the definition of a rich, full, and abundant life. This preamble from our United States Declaration of Independence speaks volumes to what should be our chosen lifestyle.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Importance of Speed
Until I was twelve years old, I
Whether we were building new wood fences for the bullpen, fixing a broken piece of equipment, or training a young horse, there were always those occasions where Dad needed something we didn’t have, with us.
So, he would say, “Kim, run get…” (whatever it was imperative to success)
And, I ran. Me and Forrest Gump — we ran. I ran so much that by the time we moved to the foreign country of East Texas, I ran the other guys off the track and brought home my share of 1st place ribbons.
Wile E Coyote
If you want to see the predators circle, begin building something of value. A whole pack of your enemies will be first to the scene — and not far behind them will be wolves in sheep’s clothing. Many you counted as friends will show their true color — green, with envy and jealousy.
Even though cute in a cartoon, this is an apt definition of a coyote.
“… long, slim, sick, sorry-looking skeleton” and a “living, breathing allegory of the desire to want. He’s always hungry.”Samuel Clemens’ book Roughing It
Unless you go all in to achieve success according to your plan, the predators will go all out to destroy your hopes, dreams, and aspirations.
And — that’s WHY it is imperative that you have a Better Business Plan.
We never see the Roadrunner working on his blueprint to stay alive. Yet, his resourcefulness indicates that he is constantly modifying and adapting his Better Business Plan to avoid the wiles of the coyote.
Much more important than playing not to lose (his life) it is much more fun
Beyond the importance of speed discussed earlier, discipline, dedication, patience, perseverance, and collaboration are the secrets to drafting, implementing, measuring, modifying, and celebrating your Better Business Plan.
Better Business Plan
Since we have two hands with five fingers on each, let’s simplify all this into a 5-Step Model.
- Drafting (discipline)
- Implementing (dedication)
- Measuring (patience)
- Modifying (perseverance)
- Celebrating (collaboration)
Drafting ~ The first step is to make a plan. All creations of value begin with an idea captured into a Blueprint.
Implementing ~ Once the plan is available, the adage, “Work the plan!” rings true. Blood, sweat, and tears will be the investment.
Measuring ~ In order to manage, we must measure — “What is going right?” — and, “What needs improvement?”
Modifying ~ “Nothing works quite right the first time.” Our choices are Resignation and Despair — or, Fascination and Curiosity.
Celebrating ~ Success is a beautiful experience, to be shared with admiring friends and respectful enemies. Enjoy!
We have two hands — and, not three, five, or eight — because they are a reminder there are only two paths available: Light, or Darkness. On one hand, this — and, on the other hand, that.
The creation of light requires effort — make a candle, gather fuel, or strike a match all require resources and time.
Darkness is a void — a vast nothingness of worthless space. Yet, host to those who choose to hide their evil thoughts and actions.
Wile E Coyote usually met his demise in the darkness of a canyon, as we watched him go “poof” into a cloud of dust. His own actions were the cause of the result — and Roadrunner was, simply, a spectator to Karma.
186,000 miles per second — that’s the Speed of Light.
Darkness cannot extinguish Light.
With your Better Business Plan in hand, YOU can move quickly from any taint of darkness into the light of a better day and time.
If a Stuttering Roadrunner can do it, YOU can, too!
