To Go Where Your VisionPoints, a few inspiration points for you and your business.

One thousand percent of the shots I don’t take don’t go in.
—Wayne Gretzky

In yesterday’s post here at MCE, I gave you five planning strategies so little-used, that I almost felt I was sharing my secrets with you—and one very important bonus strategy.

(You didn’t get a chance yet? Well, that’s okay, go read how to boost your future sales now. One thousand percent of the posts you don’t read, can’t boost your sales at all.)

I know how easy it is to put planning for growth on the get-around-to-it list. Some days planning past breakfast is a stretch! But believe me, of all the quotations I keep in my huge list of inspirations, it’s this from hockey’s nearly-immortal Wayne Gretzky, that I stop to linger on at least once a week, rolling the truth of it over and over in my mind, admiring the simple brilliance of his version of “seize the day.”

My version is that quietly commanding bonus strategy.

Begin today, dear friends and readers, to make real improvements at your place of business. Or else today’s score is guaranteed to be grim—1000% is a mighty large fail rate.

What can you do right now, today, to take a shot on your goal? What’s stopping you?

 

Grow and be well,
