Have you ever read a saying that immediately inspired you to get back out there and kick some business goals? We all need to be reminded sometimes of why we’re doing what we’re doing! Here are five quotes we love that offer fantastic advice for keeping your business plans on track.
You can do anything, but not everything. – David Allen
Shiny Object Syndrome is definitely a thing! The start of one thing will always look more appealing than the middle of another. Completing current projects before committing to new ones will move your business forward faster and help avoid any sense of overwhelm.
It doesn’t matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop. – Confucius
Sometimes it feels like you’re wading through treacle to reach the end of your to do list. Is there more you can be doing? If not, take the pressure off and give each goal the time it needs – you’ll be in a better headspace for it!
Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. – Arthur Ashe
It’s all too easy to start comparing yourself to what others are doing and achieving. Everyone has their own path, timeline and destination – you have a different story, different skillset and different goals, so keep working on your own plans (free from any confidence-killing social media stalking) and you’ll go further than you thought possible.
Things work out best for those who make the best of how things work out. – John Wooden
Highs, lows and hairpin turns come with the territory when you’re making your own way in business – it’s a wonder we don’t get motion sickness! With how quickly trends, tastes and technology shift, the ability to anticipate and take changes in your stride is more important than ever.
If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door. – Milton Berle
If owning your own business was simple and straightforward, everyone would do it! It’s scary and exciting, empowering and rewarding but best of all, the outcome is in your own hands. Whatever you want to achieve, commit to making it happen, connect with likeminded entrepreneurs, invest in support where you need it and your dreams will turn into plans.
