“How? Slowly at first, and then all at once.”

THOUGHTS.ai[1]
Slowly at first, and then all at once.
Or… “A thing in motion stays in motion.”
Think about it… 
How did your kids grow up?
How does a man grow old?
Slowly at first, and then all at once.
 

 

How did you lose your best client?
How will you lose your best employee?
How are you, right now, losing your best supplier?
Slowly at first, and then all at once.
Because a thing in motion stays in motion.
It’s the way a child falls asleep.
It’s the way you fell in love.
It’s the way the Titanic sank.
It’s the way Sh*t Happens.
Slowly at first, and then all at once.
It’s the way Nature works.
The way you got fat.
The same way you got in shape.
The only way you become a Rock Star.
The way you reach Mastery in your Craft…
Slowly at first.
And then all at once.
So just a suggestion:
You might want to take action today.
Because your world is in motion.
Ask yourself (and your Team):
Which way are things moving now?
Are you moving in Collaboration
with your top clients
with your best employees
with your most important suppliers?
Because a thing in motion stays in motion.
Are those “Exceptional Annuities” moving forward
in collaboration with you?
OR… are they moving away from you?
“Make Exceptions for Your Exceptionals.”
Certainly your business has rules and policies.
But certain relationships are exceptions 
to the rule because they are exceptional.
You have…
… certain clients that are exceptional
… certain vendors are exceptional
… certain employees are exceptional
Exceptional defined as unusual, not typical:
uncommon, extraordinary, rare, outstanding, remarkable.
Your “Standard Policy” does not apply.
Your company’s “Normal Rules” do not apply.
An exception has to be made Right Now at This Moment
… for your Exceptionals.
Because they are Profit Annuities for you.
But in the absence of collaboration 
YOU WILL LOSE THEM.
Slowly at first.
And then all at once.
