Patience & Urgency
Patience & urgency don’t normally go together in the same sentence … until you find out why they are the perfect blend. You need a little bit of both to make ‘it’ happen.
Patience & urgency can co-exist as friends even though they seem to be polar opposites.
Let me explain.
You need patience in order to slowly chip away at big opportunities on the horizon. Eyes on the prize!
To get there you will also need a sense of urgency to finish seemingly non-urgent tasks you self-assign along the way. Keep the ball rolling!
I say self-assign because no one intending to make a ruckus ever sat around waiting for an e-mail giving them the green light to start chipping away.
So, yes, be patient – but mix it with an undercurrent of urgency for best results.
