Immediate results don’t happen. If they do, they are rarely meaningful. It takes time to create meaningful results. Yet, in times of crisis the cry for immediate results comes fast and furious. The push happens. The threats rise. The rallying cry is sounded. By carrot or stick the expectation of immediate results is created.
The problem is, results aren’t immediate. Results are the sum of effort, decisions, failure, commitment, focus, drive, partnerships, discussions, analysis, and most important time.
Looking for immediate results will get you results, but meaningful results, that’s a different story.
