Pay before Play

In the introduction to his book, Make Today Count, author John Maxwell writes, “You are preparing for something.” He suggests that the ‘something’ is either success or failure.

Maxwell recalls that his father used to remind him often, “You can pay now and play later, or you can play now and pay later.  But either way, you are going to pay.”

Those are words that wise leaders heed.  Any regrets I have in my life are due to the fact that I failed to pay up front.

Discipline is like money.  The more you deposit, the more you have available to draw from.

So what are you preparing for?  Success or failure?  The answer lies in the choices you are making.

Wise leaders consistently make great choices.  They lock in on their mission, manage their time and resources, and understand the power of relationships.

You can position yourself to leave a legacy.  But only if you are willing to pay the price.

The choice is yours.
