Ever heard the saying “Slow and steady wins the race”? Or “The early bird gets the worm”? Or even “Use your head for more than a hat rack”?
I’ve heard these plenty of times from my mother when I needed to pace myself, or from my father responding to something dumb I had done. But these never really made more sense than now… Owning a business will give you a new perspective I suppose.
Starting out now over the past 3 months (December – February), it has been a slow pace, I can see the value of my business and the work that goes into it first hand, but still I wonder at times if I am really getting anywhere. Well I have come to the conclusion that this slow start-up pace is exactly what I need to succeed. Having this pace will allow me to get better and LEARN how to do what I do more efficiently. That should be my slogan “Get Better and LEARN”. The knowledge I gain from this experience will make me better and more prepared for the busier days and months and years to come.
Maybe now I should make a hat rack…
