I like shortcuts. I’m always looking for the quickest way to get somewhere. “If it’s worth getting there it’s worth getting there fast” is my mantra for driving my car.
But all shortcuts aren’t created equal. There are wise shortcuts and lazy shortcuts.
The wise shortcut gets you there with the minimal time and effort, with no compromise in quality. It’s the standing up from your desk 35 times in a day that is better for you than 15 minutes of cardio workout approach to life.
The lazy shortcut gets your there with minimal time and effort, but the quality is compromised. It’s the missing the last set approach to working out.
One approach is smart, one is lazy; don’t mix the two up.
Recently I had an interaction with someone in a business I own.
Recently we were making a major decision in MedRecruit for a very important leadership role in the recruitment team.
If you go to almost any personal development or business seminar, the presenters will share stories of failure leading to triumph.
It’s not a shop, it’s not online, it’s not Amazon or eBay or Trademe.
Survival isn’t necessary.
Is it meeting specification?
“You don’t choose the life of being an entrepreneur, it chooses you,” is something I found myself saying to a young entrepreneur the other day.
Dissatisfaction is a common state for entrepreneurs.
Fear of failure is a common reason many people don’t start things.
Failure is inevitable.
