Consequences of Stalling

Dan Pierce/ April 6, 2016/ Teambuilding/ 1 comments

When I stall, I lose a very limited resource. Time is something that no one can ever retrieve. Once it passes, it’s gone. Stalling is the best way to miss the best opportunities. The best opportunities are only available to those that are eagerly looking for them. Stalling never positions us to see them so we settle for opportunities that fall into our lap. These opportunities can feel like the best, but it’s an illusion of the moment. Circumstances have forced the staller to choose. The last remaining choice is always the best available but it’s not the best possible result. Too many ordinary teams settle for the best available opportunity. That’s why they stay ordinary.

  1. That is a powerful lesson. I have always believed (though not always practiced) the saying “He who hesitates loses”.
