“Something will master and something will serve.
Either you run the day or the day runs you; either you run the business or the business runs you.” — Jim Rohn
Jim Rohn (September 17, 1930 – December 5, 2009) was an American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker. His rags to riches story played a large part in his work, which influenced many others in the personal development industry.
I’ve always followed Sir Richard Branson’s method of keeping a notebook with me almost all of the time. It’s my diary, my memo holder and my ideas jotter rolled into one.
OK the geeks may say I’m a dinosaur, but it doesn’t matter what you use – as long as it works for you.
In the ’4 Hour Work Week’, Tim Ferris adds this great point, “Effectiveness is doing the things that get you closer to your goals”.
So that’s what Jim Rohn is talking about.
I say this, “Run your business and run your life or the tail will be wagging the dog!”
