The holiday season being so prevalent I have been thinking a lot about what went right in 2011 and what went wrong. How to make 2012 even a better year and what to focus on. We have a new set of goals that are pretty similar to what happened in 2011. As I have been thinking about this, a quote I have heard comes to my mind.
I was meeting with someone who invests money with us and presenting him an opportunity. I had not seen him a while so the conversation started with him updating me on how his last trip was and continued with him inviting me to join him on his next trip and giving me the details. Once we finally got to it, he apologized that he had not had a chance to review the opportunity I had emailed him two weeks ago and would not have time to do anything right now.
Just for fun, I reminded him if he spent half as much time thinking about this investment as he did planning his vacation he would be a lot farther ahead.
Now I am not saying I am against vacations, or don’t take them, but if you do proper planning you can take a lot more of them!
Later this week, I will post a recap of 2011 and what we are planning for 2012. If anyone has some topics they’d like me to post about specifically let me know, I’ve had a tough time coming up with topics.
