February 17, 2014—Issue #230
This week’s focus point: The issues in our lives have to be concurrent, not sequential. When I was chair of the planning board in my town I had to convince people that you didn’t wait until every street was repaved before considering better snow removal or waterfront development. We needed to budget for the animal protection people and not just give whatever was left over after everything else was paid for. The same holds true for ourselves and our businesses. All things aren’t of the same priority, but all priorities needn’t take all of our time (otherwise there’d be no vacations or recreation). If you wait to enjoy yourself until all work is completed, you’ll never enjoy yourself. You’ll be far more productive if you move several things forward as opposed to just one. I know people who don’t pursue leads while they’re delivering a project. There’s a name for them: impoverished.
