The Places We Go

I told my doctor, “Doc, I broke my leg in two places!”  He said, “Stop going to those places…”

     –  Henny Youngman (1906 – 1998), iconic American comedian 

Often, the places we go dictate the results we get.

Physically, if we’re going to the wrong places – prospects that won’t buy from us, clients that won’t be loyal to us, trade shows that are poorly attended  (strike that — let’s just say trade shows, end of sentence!), we’ll end up with suboptimal results, lower return on time invested, more frustration, less income, and a less-forecastable business.

Mentally, if we’re going to the wrong places – fear, doubt, second-guessing, over-thinking – we’ll end up with suboptimal results, lower return on time invested, more frustration, less income and a less-than-enjoyable life.  Negative self-talk and negative mindsets are exhausting and worse, debilitating.  Negativity is a slippery slope and there’s no pot of gold at the bottom of that slope.

Given a choice, we ought to go to the right places physically while in the right place mentally.

If the only choice we have is either-or, we ought to choose the right places mentally.  When we’re mentally “right” we won’t go to the wrong places physically.

Here’s more Henny Youngman…we can all use a good laugh…and, I don’t think he’s been canceled, yet…
