Being entrepreneurs requires so much of us—our hearts, souls, minds, and bodies—a constant journey of self-reflection, self-discovery, and self-motivated action to fill the gaps and to address the needs so that we keep moving forward.
As entrepreneurs, we are on a perpetual mountain climb, constantly reaching for new supplies and new tools that we didn’t even know we needed, nor could have foreseen needing, until we arrived at the next summit.

Procrastination can also send us down rabbit holes.
“Just one more minute, then I’ll get back to work” “Wow, I just got sucked into this movie and didn’t realize two hours had flown by.” “I really, really, really—right now—need to organize my dryer lint collection."
Ah, the mind games we play with ourselves. And all the while we’re playing these games, time flits away like an elusive butterfly, moving us further from intentionally growing our businesses until it may be too late.

And you know . . . you were right.
