Thoughts of the Week (Updated)

Positive Thought of the Week - TODAY I WILL ACT

To paraphrase a Chinese proverb: The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, and the second best time is today. That rings true on so many levels but the one that really hits home is; in order to create change I must take action.

Today I will act. I will find three things I have been planning to do and start doing them. It doesn’t matter if these are life changing or just day changing; the key to success action. It doesn’t matter how long I have delayed or how long it will take, the key is to start.

Business Thought of the Week - DIFFERENTIATION IS THE KEY

In today’s business climate (even more than normal) differentiation is the key. What am I doing differently for my clients and my co-workers that make us stand out against our competition. I will make sure I enhance my personal connections with my clients and co-workers. Personal visits and handwritten notes will help them both know that they can rely on me to understand their needs and react accordingly.
