What a long times it’s been, and that’s the way things are.

In my “younger days” I have been used to things happening fast. Didn’t realize that out of ten things I did, only less than half succeeded. Half is good. Actually, perhaps one in ten was a “good” success factor. Speak to those who are seen to have succeeded and who are honest with you. One in ten is pretty good. I’m not talking about financial investment proportions, where you lose $10 to gain $1. That will beg bad if even the successful one was a one off event. Even in business type events, there is a situation where you eventually get prolonged returns that will give you more than ten times your initial investment.

What I’m trying to do here is to tell those of you who are tired, and who are frustrated by failures, or by non-results to not lose heart.

At the same time, to find some time and space to observe and analyze. And here’s another strange thing in life. When you’re really busy and running fast, full of hope and enthusiasm, you have no time to sit and think. So, when you do have the time, meaning you are not in the midst of a rush, do find time to sit and think. Even if the think is nothing to do with what you’re trying to do today, this week or this month. Think. Find time for yourself to spend with yourself.

What about time thinking around the business, beside the unplanned mental times?

Think through some business ideas whether or not you get any positive endings in the thoughts. If you only want thoughts that have instant conclusions, then you are not really stretching your mind isn’t it?

Practice.

I can’t put this in more attractive ways. But that’s just the nature of truth. It’s you get it or you don’t. Nothing romantically attractive about it. But just a few words that inspire you, ha!
