It is unforgiving and treacherous.

5- Be that as it may, we all know that there’s gold to be made, if you are up for the challenge.

That’s why we take the journey, that’s why we try to better ourselves…

6 – We’re after the gold.

7 – There are truths that must be embraced.  Some are good, others bad and some are just plain ugly.

Here are some Pearls of Productive Wisdom from three industrious prospectors we love…

8 – “You see, in this world there’s two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig.”

9 – Some people may have a temporary advantage over you. Don’t be impressed…

Someday, they might find themselves without a gun.  Until then, as long as you’re not the one holding the gun, you dig.

Life is fickle that way.

10 – “Every gun makes its own tune.”

11 – A good gun is ok, but a great tune hits the target

You have your own personal work style. It probably fits you and you alone.

Whether perfectly or not, depends on the amount of time you invest tuning it.

12 – “Two hundred thousand dollars is a lot of money. We’re gonna have to earn it.”

13 – Think big! No successful enterprise was ever handed on a silver platter.

Work hard and meet obstacles head on.

To reach the top, you’ll have to do what others won’t.

14 – “I thought three was the perfect number.”

15 – There’s no such thing as the “perfect time”. Conditions will never be perfect.

If you won’t act, someone else will.

Talking = Procrastinating

18 – “You never had a rope around your neck? Well, I’m going to tell you something crazy. When that rope starts to pull tight, you can feel the Devil bite your @$$.”

Don’t wait for the last minute.

When the devil bites, he bites hard!

20 – “People with ropes around their necks don’t always hang.”

21 – Things are not what they seem, you have to see the big picture!

Sometimes, it is not the fastest gun that gets the gold.

Often, it’s the person who’s able to anticipate the moves of others, someone who plans.

22 – “When you have to shoot, shoot. Don’t talk.”

23 – Hit it while it’s hot… Just Do It…

Use any cliché you’d like.

There’s time for plans and there’s time for actions.

The sooner you act, the faster you get the gold!

24 – “If you work for a living, why do you kill yourself working?”

25 – The third constant in life is work.

No matter how hard you work today, tomorrow is a brand new day.

So save some for tomorrow…

26 – You can’t control the amount of work you have, you can only control the way you work!

Work smart, take breaks, unwind and regroup.

…And always make sure your

Next Action counts!
