Building Momentum

By Étienne Garbugli | September 14, 2012 | 2 Comment

Upward or downward, there is always momentum. Success breeds success while failure, more often than not, leads to more failure. It’s the people that work that get the work while, people that don’t, are kept out of the loop.

Improve your momentum. If you’re in business, never stop pitching new clients. If you have a 9 to 5, never stop meeting new people. You’ll only increase your value and negotiating power.

The more people you meet, the more visible you are. The more visible you are, the more opportunities you get. Work on your momentum, make sure it works in your favor.

The more rods you have, the more fishes you can catch. ;)
