Think Daily for Businesspeople Messages
Once you have decided on accomplishing a goal, you must not change your mind. It will be done.
Things will get tough if it is a worthy goal. You can change your strategy, tactics and methods (and often should as you learn), but you must never waiver in your resolve to the end goal.

Can you do more valuable work than the work your company does? In other words, if I own a painting company, I likely started out as a painter. If I take 5,000 brush strokes in a day, that’s worth a given amount. But can I do work that is more valuable than that as the owner of a painting company?
The answer is yes. I could recruit and train other painters, I could sell lots of work, or create new systems my team can use to deliver my services over many years in a way that clients would value more. Of course, I’d have to learn how to do this and want to.

You’re the leader. Your team members do the work. What can you do to amplify their results? What caplital investments can you make to help them perform? What training can you provide to help them “get it done”? What positive reinforcement and public recognition can you provide to bring out the best in the team?
The leader is the amplifier. Are you working?
