business Sep 09, 2018

If you're anything like me, a great idea flies into your head, and then departs just as swiftly. If you're lucky, you wrote it down on a scrap of paper while you had it. I had pads and pads of such ideas, but you know what?  They never got implemented.

I thought of GREAT ideas during the slower part of the year that never got implemented during the busy season because I just couldn't seem to find the time to flesh out the idea, or put the process into practice.

Napolean Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, famously said, "Plan your work and work your plan."

it has happened to you

S/he "just didn't work out". Wow, once the interview was over, your decent, well-mannered candidate turned out to be someone completely different. After just a few weeks/months, s/he turned out to be arrogant, careless, lazy, surly, tardy, self-serving, negligent, and/or full of excuses. Now that you have filled the position you were so desperate to, it is...
