Monday Morning Motivation...............

"You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do."  ~Henry Ford

Here we are at the end of January.  Isn't it amazing how fast this month came to a close?  It seems, or is it feels, like it  All Dressed Up just started and now it is finished, done, completed, over.

I got all dressed up at the end of 2010 in my finest.  I had all of my plans and goals setup and was enthusiastic about getting started.  How about you?

Then things happened.  All that snow and I couldn't get out of the house and the buyers stopped calling.  You know the drill.  All of a sudden those lofty goals for the start of the year went right down the toilet.  Oh well, I was going to do it!

You can't build a reputation on what you were going to doWhat will I use for an excuse when the first days of Spring appear and the golf course is beckoning?  That cabin fever that I have been feeling all Winter long needs to be resolved FIRST!  Then I will catch up on my goals because the buyers and sellers will be out in force.

There is never a better time to get started than today.  Forget about the "Going To" and start building or rebuilding your reputation today.

Well said, Don! Competiton may be thinking the same thing. Getting ahead means resisting the temptation to make and yield to the excuses.

Jack Canfield wrote a book called "The Success Principles" where he talks about the Power of 5. Do five things everyday that takes you closer to your goals. It's a great book!

Don...

A few years back, I gave up golf for good and I am AMAZED at the amount of time that freed up for me to do other things. It saved a lot of money too!

Pretty good though. It is hard to be a performer if you don't get yourself into the game.

Great reminder. You just gotta do something and not wait for the perfect time or when life isn't so busy.
