You can go to work or you can be the boss……
I continuously hear quotes and sayings in relation of life and business to marathons or sprints. Let me start by saying I HATE CARDIO. However in life we simply have to do things that we don’t want to do in order to succeed. Whether it be working not playing, diet and exercise, cleaning up the house, getting organized so we are more productive in our business, etc.
TRAIN FOR A MARATHON. So this is where I completely contradict myself because diligence is so important. I read that in business you have to approach it at full force at the pace of a full sprint. Once you find a good opportunity then it requires the patience of marathon runner. I know this is hard, trust me. I am not a marathoner. I have to force myself to run period.
I feel fortunate to have the career that I know I was meant to do. I constantly wake up each morning striving for perfection in all areas but accepting that perfection will never fully be achieved.
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet. KEEP LOOKING, DON’T SETTLE. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know it when you find it” – Steve Jobs
So I will close in saying, its a new year. We only get one chance at this life. Don’t allow waiting to become a habit. Live your dreams and take risks. Life is happening now.
