Good Things Come To Those Who DON’T Wait!

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
— Barack Obama

New Year Blessings Optical Family! What a year it was for 2018. Now just like that, it’s gone! I hear people say when the new year comes I am going to do things differently or they say that there will be a lot of changes in the upcoming year. It is like people are waiting for the new year to elapse to become better?!?! Ummm, be a different version of themselves? Wow! To me, that is utterly insane! What are people waiting for? Change is instant! The very thought of change starts the process of changing! So Optical Family I challenge you to be 1% better in our craft to yourself and our clientele each day. That’s it. Just one little-bitty percent better each day. It probably doesn’t seem like it’s much, but I promise you those 1% improvements will start adding up upon each other. Don’t wait to be a better person; a better Optician begin the process now! Right now! Like I’ve mentioned before — wait/weight (because waiting/procrastinating becomes “weighted” issues in your life) broke the wagon! If the “wagon” is broke, you ain’t going no freakin’ where — period! Yes, in the beginning; your improvements will be so minuscule it may appear non-existent to you. But I promise gradually and ever so slowly, guess what? Guess what? You will start to see and notice the improvements in all areas of your life.

Don't wait to make changes in your life! Yes, it may take months, but the improvements will come I promise, but you must focus on persistently upping your game by 1%. You will eventually reach a certain point with your personal life development in which a mere 1% increase in improvement is equivalent to the same amount of growth you experienced in the first few days combined. Do it! This is very important for our craft. Opticians are very necessary in the world of sight as being the bridge that people cross over to not only improve their vision but enhancing their lives as well. Just 1%, that’s kind of hard to get your mind around, because of math. But okay think about it: 1% of 1 is just .01; 1% of 100 is 1. You’re maybe at a one right now, and will only be making little improvements for a while. Good things come to those who DON'T wait! So stick with it. You will eventually reach that 100 level (and beyond) where you’ll be improving by a factor of 1 every day. Remember family, with great service, comes even greater sales. A New year...A New Start...A New Chapter...A New Beginning forget the bad— Cherish the GOOD...I sincerely wish you ALL a very blessed New Year ahead....

Happy Selling,
