Quit Daydreaming. Start Doing.
April 3, 2021
Have you ever wondered why so many people seem to be chasing a dream, but they never even get close to obtaining it? It's because everyone talks about their dreams, they chase them in their minds, but they never actually make and follow through with an action plan. Very few people will ever realize their dream and most often it's because they don't do the work or they quit on themselves too soon in other words.they self eliminate when the going gets tough. Winners know it isn't easy, they fall down and get back up (many times), they don't lose sight of their dream, they do the work and when everyone else says it's time to give it up.....they keep going never giving up on themselves or their dream.

For many the toughest leadership test is looming, with an unknown end to Covid, supply chain issues, staffing issues, and inflation. Four qualities will be critical for business leaders to find their way: resolve, resilience, re-imagination, and reform. Many will have to start over.
