Perfecting versus perfection.

We’ve all heard the groan: “We have an aggressive schedule to meet.” The fact is, it’s not the “schedule” timeline that is aggressive; rather, it’s what we choose to fit into it. Adopting an attitude of progress refinement (perfecting over perfection) with the confidence percentage strategy helps reduce this tension between promised and actually delivered tasks.

Last article we discussed some of the down-side to working remotely (either from home or from an off-site office).

Experts still research

New advances come up all the time, even in the area of “do-it-yourself”.

Armed with this information, people are more likely to “do-it-themselves”. Unfortunately, the consequences are as bountiful as the information. One of the consequences to small businesses may be a loss of a potential client.

What can each of you do “right now” to get you closer to your goals?
Financially, nutritionally, physically, relationship wise? What one thing – right now – sitting right here. Look around the room, across the room, at your neighbor, all around you. We’re all different, with different situations and aspirations. But there’s one thing – and it’s the same thing, that each of us can do to get us closer to each and every goal that we have.

I’ve heard that “The pen is mightier than the sword.”

So – which is “more” right? Which is more important, thought or action?
