Time Optimism

Time Optimism

By: Ross Paterson

“…but all people at root are TIME OPTIMISTS.  We always think there’s enough time to do things with other people.  Time to say things to them.  And then something happens and then we stand there holding on to words like ‘if.’”  -Frederik Backman, A Man Called Ove.

We have dozens of clients every year go through our 12-month Leadership Forums.  All of them receive roughly the same experience, content, and attention from the XM Performance Team.  The return on investment (ROI) each receives is completely dependent on their TIME OPTIMISM.

The Time Optimist is waiting for the ‘normal’ week, a lull in the action, or the miraculous 36-hour day to start taking transformative action.  The Time Pessimist acts with urgency and implements what they are learning…Right Now!!  Transformation comes quickly to these Time Pessimists and new potential is created for their business.  Much better to be a Pessimist in this case.

“The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”  -Chinese Proverb

Don’t let 2018 sneak up on you, and leave you holding on to words like ‘if.’
