Refueling. Success is in the past.
As we come to the end of summer I find that it is a reminder of how quickly time flies. At Streamline, we do not have a lot of down time, but we typically find that June and July are at least free from excessive travel. It allows us to rest, refuel, and create great summer memories with our families and find some type of balance in our daily lives.
The refueling process is key to ongoing success.
The problem with success is that it is a lousy teacher and it is always in the past. Past successes can be used as a memory or a motivation when we’re stuck, but they’re always behind us. Think about that for a minute. To be successful is about something we have done. It has nothing to do with what we will do today or tomorrow. When you begin to understand this mentality, you understand that you have to refuel from success. You have to re-charge in order to move forward.
We Cannot Rely on Past Accolades
So as we start our busy fall season, our team understands that success for our clients and our company starts over with every project. We know that we cannot rely on past accolades. It breeds complacency. To quote author, Phil Savage, it is 4thand Goal every day. When it is 4thand Goal, you get one shot and your attention to detail and your preparation will be the indicator of your success.
“It is 4th and Goal every day”. -Phil Savage
