No Magic Wand!

In the business marketplace there is unfortunately no magic wand!

No such thing as being lucky.

No such thing as being in the right place at the right time.

Sorry to bust your bubble but in the business world it is about strategy, planning, execution and results.  When these elements all come together it may appear to the untrained eye as magic, luck or just being in the right place at the right time. For those of you who are business leaders, it is far from the illusion some might see.

As we move into the final weeks of the calendar year 2015, your 2016 strategies, planning and ramping up for execution should be well in hand.  You should continue to execute your 2015 action plans and review what worked well and what may influence tweaks to your 2016 efforts.

It is only by planning and review of results that you can make informed decisions.  Otherwise, you are just guessing and hoping for a given result. 

Here are a few quotes to consider as you wave your magic wand and  plan your luck for 2016 –

I say luck is when an opportunity comes along and you’re prepared for it. – Denzel Washington – Actor

Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity. – Lucius Annaeus Seneca – Philosopher

Good luck happens to people who work hard for it. Sometimes people just fall into the honey pot, but I’ve consistently strived to create whatever good fortune I can get in my life – and consistently strive just as hard not to screw it up once I have it! – Patrick Duffy – Actor

Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect. – Ralph Waldo Emerson – Essayist, Poet

It’s hard to tell with these Internet startups if they’re really interested in building companies or if they’re just interested in the money. I can tell you, though: If they don’t really want to build a company, they won’t luck into it. That’s because it’s so hard that if you don’t have a passion, you’ll give up. – Steve Jobs – Apple

When it comes to luck, you make your own. – Bruce Springsteen – Artist, Song Writer
