I was catching up on some blog reading tonight, and noticed a thought provoking piece by David St Lawrence over at Ripples. He says "I am beginning to suspect that in a business which develops repeat
customers, sometimes I can do more than I realize, just by showing up
on a schedule."
Isnt that so true though? Show up and you are more than half way there. In a business – show up for your clients consistently and they will trust that you will be there when they need you or are ready to buy what you are offering.
Show up to the gym regularly and consistently and you are three quarters of the way to becoming fit (yup – really)
Show up in a relationship, (and I mean really show up) and the relationship has a 95% chance of success
Show up to the job, and you should get paid
Show up for your kids – be there, right through their childhood – and the level of trust between you will be strong
Show up for your commitments – dont pike out – and they will live to see another day
Show up for your health appointments (doctor and dentist checkups, etc) and your body will be in a winning position
Show up for your friends when they need you, and you will be rewarded with strong, resilient friendships
And David, may I say, show up in your blog posts week after week, always giving the same high quality, thoughtful insights – and people will keep coming back for more…
