"If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I’d spend six sharpening my axe."
The inspirational message for the self employed from this quote is:
Words of wisdom to live by for sure! This statement highlights the importance of careful preparation, commitment and precision in executing a task or achieving a goal. The actual task is not what should take most of your time. Your preparation that leads up to the action is the most critical period. In your business, do you spend sufficient time in planning, strategizing and preparation, and sharpening your ‘tools’ to be able to action promptly and effectively when the time is right to do so?
