The Failure Trap

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Welcome back friends from the long weekend.  Today’s post is focused on “time traps” I’ve read a great book written by Todd Duncan called Time Traps – Proven Strategies for Swamped Sales People. (available on-line at Amazon or Borders) The author lays out 8 “time traps” that stop of us from achieving our goals.  The one I’m going to focus on today is called The Failure Trap

The Failure Trap:  Stop wasting time worrying about yesterday.  Discovery how to make the most of the only moment you can do anything about: This Moment.  I know….easier said than done.  The point here is no regrets.  Learn from your past and from your mistakes and move forward. Stop wasting time.  I’ll leave you with a quote in the chapter.

“Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker.  Failure is a delay, but not defeat.  It is a temporary detour, not a dead end street.”   – william ward
