In 2016 Planning And Perseverance Will Pay Off (Part 1)

Planning for Success


Planning + Perseverance = Success (Part 1)

A quick three part series summed up from three great quotes to help motivate and stay on track in 2016.The first quote is on Planning, and is provided by Gustav Metzman:

"Most business men generally are so busy coping with immediate and piecemeal matters that there is a lamentable tendency to let the long run or future take care of itself. We often are so busy putting out fires, so to speak, that we find it difficult to do the planning that would prevent those fires from occurring in the first place. As a prominent educator has expressed it, Americans generally spend so much time on things that are urgent that we have none left to spend on those that are important."


Make your plan, and plan to do it!

Lisa I love the last part of the quote because it is so true.

"Americans generally spend so much time on things that are urgent that we have none left to spend on those that are important."

These are some wise words, Lisa.  And we should all strive to make the time to set up a plan.

Lisa - working with entrepreneurs I can agree totally with Gustav Metzman's statement.  People are too busy working IN their business to work ON their business.

I believe it is probably one of the most difficult strategies to maintain.  Not getting wrapped up in the daily that we forget to look up from time to time and see if we are still pointing at the goal.  Mark
