Strategies to help you achieve any goal #2

Practice Persistence PERSISTENCE is the one common attribute high achievers share above anything else?. They simply refuse to give up until they reach their goal. It doesn’t matter what obstacles they encounter, they just keep trying. But, in trying, they learn. If one thing doesn’t work, they make a minor adjustment and try again. Look at the goal from a different perspective. A scientist, when challenged about the number of failures he had in his experiment responded: “No, I just…

If your business were to close suddenly tomorrow:

Would anyone notice? Would anyone care?   We all need to feel wanted. (I don’t mean having your picture on the wall of a post office) As a business, is what you bring to this world of value? As I reflect on these questions I am struck by a revelation that there are two quite distinct aspects to the questions. Firstly, As a person in the business and delivering services to clients.

Patience – The Art of Waiting – Part 2

The thing I am enjoying about this blog is that I am getting as much from writing it as I hope you are getting from reading.  Let me know?
