Remember the fable the hare and the tortoise?
Boy, does that famous story ring true on so many levels…most of us fail because give up too soon or we simply run out of time. Did you know that is takes on the order of 10,000 hours to master something? Do you think you can build a successful business overnight or master a new marketplace in 2 weeks…? Nah, it doesn’t work like that.
I am reminded of these thoughts everyday as I raise my children, try to develop a new market, look for the correct messaging, have the patience and persistence to build a team, convert a suspicious prospect and on and on and on…
The best advice I can give anyone is to bring enough supplies with you for the journey so you don’t starve before you finish the race.
