Soon is not as good as NOW

This is my favourite quote, from a marketing hero of mine, Seth Godin. And here’s why:

I like to work with action-takers; with clients who want to fast track their goals.  I spoke to an agent last week who told me he wanted to take his turnover from £50k a month, to £100k a month.

Great goal. I asked him, how long he wanted to take to achieve this, and he told me “three years”.

I have a plan that could take him to his goal in a year, or even less. 

What are you doing – today – to make your goals work? What are you putting off till tomorrow something you should – and could – have done yesterday?

The best time to plant an oak tree is 30 years ago.  The second best time is right now.

If you don’t change something today, how are you going to reach your goals?  What magical event is going to happen to suddenly skyrocket your business and allow you to lead the life you really want – and deserve?

Taking action today and a step towards making your goals a reality is the single most important thing you can find time for in your busy schedule.  What have you done today – or even this month – to take a definite step towards achieving your goals?

 Are you ready for a Challenge Call?

I offer a handful of dynamic, action-taking agents a free Challenge Call each month.  Those who take me up on this offer give themselves a headstart on their competitors, get clear on their goals, and understand what they need to do to get there.  On the call, we’ll look at your most pressing challenge currently, and aim to find a solution right there, on the call.
