More Nuggets from the Room

Today at the Proactive vs. Reactive Seminar Ed gave his usual insights.

He mentioned the story of the man who had the goose who laid the golden eggs. Once he realized they were real gold, he was able to amass quite a fortune. Then he became inpatient. His child took over and thought, instead of waiting for the eggs to be laid one at a time, he would go into get them. So he cut off the head of the goose only to find they weren't in there and the source of his wealth is permanently done. So it pays to slow down to speed up. Patience is worth it.
