Today, I went for a test drive in an Audi. Those of you that know me, know that my Jetta is getting to a point where I am feeling less confident in its reliability. This has led me to a point where I want…no…need to create a plan. If I drive it until it dies then I am in a desperate situation to find a replacement. Now for some of you that isn’t much of an issue because a car is just a tool to get you from Point A to Point B. For me, however, I am pickier about my cars than I am about my watches. That’s pretty picky.
So the Audi was…Incredible. I loved it. However, it was sitting 15% higher than my maximum price point. I would love to be able to say that isn’t a big deal. For me, today, it was a big deal. With some minor uncertainty on one of my sales channels currently, it would be a very bad decision to move in this direction. So I wait. Begrudgingly, I wait.
On the ride home from the dealership, it got me to thinking. There is no reason why I could not find a way to make that Audi work for me. It was an A4, and it had every tech feature I was looking for. That is going to be my goal. I want to be able to buy it. However, before that can happen, I need to continue to grow my businesses and figure out new ways to make them work. I cannot justify taking on more debt, needlessly, if I can find a way to make my assets grow enough to buy the car.
But that is such a small and unimportant part of what I want. I have a list of many things I want to accomplish. Do you have one of these? Goals, drivers, inspiration, whatever you call the items on this list, do you have one? What are you doing to make those happen, and how often do you think/focus on these things? Is it daily? Weekly? Monthly? Yearly?
I pride myself on helping people reach their goals or at least get on the path to doing so. I always ask for the same thing from them: PATIENCE. Yet in practice, I am the absolute worst at following my own advice. I cannot wait, and let things happen. My personality is one that runs out and goes after…well, everything. So what can I do? Well, I continue my hustle for sure. I have projects in the works, and projects I am still working on. Eventually it will get to be too much, but until then I don’t have time to stop.
I want to build something Great. You do, too. Let me help you make that happen. If you want to chat about it, get in touch with me. I read all of the comments, and all of the emails as well.
