My boss, Chris Mercer, often tells a story of the time, early in his career, that he spent with a very successful stockbroker. While with him, Chris took the opportunity to ask him the secret to his success. His response made a big impression on Chris and is an enduring truth. He said:
The key to my success is Momentum. If you have it, you do everything you can to keep it. If you don't have it, you do everything you can to get it.
We're approaching the mid-point of 2011. Time passes quickly. The days are long but the years are short.
Where are you on your goals?
Do you have the momentum to help you achieve them? Did you have momentum at the beginning of the year and now find yourself mid-year having lost that momentum?
Take some time in the next week or two to review your goals and, if needed, adjust or realign them to your current situation and then begin again to find the momentum you are seeking. For those of you who are on track, keep the momentum.
May the second half of 2011 be productive and successful for you and your firm!
