“We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.” — Jim Rohn, Motivational Coach
I think this quote from Jim Rohn holds true for any business, and I believe it is particularly true for those of us in the construction business. There are lots of things in this business that need to be done and we must have the discipline to do them.
Some are more important than others. Returning all your calls and on time, keeping appointments on time, advertising, providing good service. These all fall into the “A” category of discipline, necessary for success.
You can’t do everything at once. Create a daily to-do list, prioritize it, do A items before B, B before C – keep your focus. You will not only survive this crunch, but as so many are doing now, you will do well and even better. You can come out the other end of this tunnel in great shape, ready to seize the opportunities that always follow a decline.
Keep a smile my friends, do what you need to do. Be a winner.
