|The Client Letter|
|Wait For No One|
September 29, 2011
Sometimes you’re waiting to hear back from a prospect…
Sometimes you’re waiting on a payment from a client…
Sometimes you’re waiting on someone to do something that they said they were going to do.
I’ve done more than my fair share of waiting. And when I fall into that trap, I end up feeling really stupid.
I feel stupid because I’ve allowed someone other than myself to slow down my progress. I feel stupid because when I’m “waiting,” often times that’s all I’m doing.
The progress of my business slows because I’m focused on the waiting.
I think a better way to view things is to go in with the attitude that, “You wait for no one.”
The idea isn’t that you should be a jerk and demand that everything happens on your terms.
The idea is that when you’re waiting for someone to do something, forget about it in an instant and take action on something else to build your business.
Let’s say you are waiting on a payment from a client. Days go by and the payment doesn’t arrive.
You have two choices:
Wait around and stew about it. Choose this path and you’ll be focusing your energy on a target that will do you absolutely no good.
Move on and focus on something you actually control.
Getting caught “waiting for the world” is a fool’s game. You will never win, because the world is not there to serve you. You are there to serve you.
Are you waiting on something in your business?
Stop waiting, stop stewing, stop complaining.
Just start doing.
See you tomorrow,
