“Our business in life is not to get ahead of others, but to get ahead of ourselves — to break our own records, to outstrip our yesterday by our today.” – Stewart B. Johnson
It’s easy to lose sight of your own personal business goals if you focus too intently on what other people in your industry are achieving.
Your objectives need to focus on what your business can realistically achieve within its means. Although you should be aware of what your competitors are doing, it isn’t always possible to emulate or better what they are accomplishing.
Beating your own personal goals and records will leave you feeling extremely satisfied and encourage you to push onwards and achieve more.
