13 Aug Eighty percent of success is showing up
I first read this quote by Woody Allen in a little book of quotes on life that I picked up in a flea market. It stuck with me and when I started my own business I had it pinned to the notice board for the longest time.
It’s true ‘Eighty percent of success is showing up‘.
If you don’t enter the competition or send out the quote or approach the shop then you aren’t even in the game. If you show up, fully, then you are ahead of so many of your competitors.
This is something that I need to remind myself of, the last few weeks I have been battling a god awful flu and while I am managing to get all the day to day tasks done, orders out, classes taught I have been struggling to find the energy for the big picture tasks. So I shall be pinning this back up to my noticeboard and drawing up some big picture tasks to take a big bite out of next week. I always find by putting my goals down they become more real and by telling you (the www) about them then I feel beholden to complete them.
Like the man said ‘Show Up’.
If you are having similar sentiments feel free to share, print, pin or comment on this post with your goals for next week!
In other news I was pretty happy with myself for managing to get this new Film Pen design listed last week.
