If last week’s quote, Nike’s “Just Do It” summons a call to action, this week’s offers timeframe. Now! Napoleon Hill, a founding father of this country’s personal success literature movement states it plainly. There is no room for procrastination or hesitation in today’s fast paced business world. To be in front of clients, not straggling behind, you must be timely and responsive to their needs. To hesitate is to lose business to your competitors. There is no “later”, no “when I get to it.”
I’ve been sick and away from the office most of the week, wrestling with my own need to get things done and guilt for not doing so. Well, I heed Mr. Hill’s words today. As much as I would like to curl up, procrastinate and think of something, anything other than business, I’m here, acting “now”. And, that’s what it takes to be self-employed.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
