Yes, as they say:
- Seize the day!
- Make today matter!
- Why put off for tomorrow what you can do today?
I could not agree more.
But if you want to build a successful business, and if you want a happy and productive and stress free life, always tackle the worst projects and challenges, first!
For over 30 years I have advised clients nationwide regarding how to achieve their goals and objectives with their businesses, how to succeed and prosper with their businesses.
In addition to providing guidance on how to build a successful business, I’ve also advised countless business owner clients regarding matters in their personal lives.
Most of us like to avoid the worst (nastiest, messiest, ugliest, most difficult) projects and challenges. It is only human nature to avoid the most vexing issues, controversies. Very understandable. But consider this.
Problems/ Challenges Don’t Go Away If We Ignore Them.
Issues aren’t resolved if they are swept under the rug.
In point of fact the problems, challenges, and issues often fester (i.e., get worse) if ignored, or swept under the rug.
For at the end of the day the chickens will always come home to roost.
As we ignore problems, challenges, and issues they also tend to weigh heavy on our minds. Stress anyone?
So with the benefit of my experience counseling business owners and my own life experience with family, friends, etc., I would encourage all business owners to build more successful businesses, and have more enjoyable and productive and stress-free lives, by always tackling the worst problems, challenges, and issues first.
Tackle them head on and promptly after they raise their ugly heads, and be done with it.
Yes, carpe diem! That, and always tackle the worst (problems/challenges/issues) first!

Quote of the Week
“Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired. When you were younger the mind could make you dance all night, and the body was never tired…You’ve always got to make the mind take over and keep going.” ― George S. Patton Jr.
