Waiting & Worrying will Either Pay Off?
The world we live in today, is not the world we lived in a few short months ago! By Far!
People are worried…they want answers now: Will schools be open next month? Will there be youth sports? Will businesses remain open? When will there be a cure? More!
As business owners, there are 2 words I can promise you are not your friends: WAITING & WORRYING!
Worrying is an easy choice! But it takes a lot of effort, and truthfully, worrying is 110% worthless. It accomplishes nothing, nada, zip, zero.
Waiting…same thing. WASTE-OF-TIME!!
Waiting also gets absolutely nothing done. While you wait to see what customers, employees, and the world does…nimble business owners are listening, adapting, creating, changing…and moving on.
I know things are tough right now. Heck, I have had to recreate much of my business’s operations. We have had to change, shift, adapt…and embrace these challenges with smiles and positive attitudes.
What other choice do we have?
Yep, Waiting & Worrying. They are certainly choices…and if they are yours…GOOD LUCK!
I will close with an oft used and adapted quote.
“There Are Three Types of People: Those Who Make Things Happen, Those Who Watch Things Happen, and Those Who Wonder What Happened!”
You choose which person represents you.
Make it easy for people to do (and keep doing) business with you!
Look up… and surprise someone!
