The Long Run …

“I used to hurry a lot. I used to worry a lot,
I used to stay out till the break of day.
Oh, that didn’t get it,
It was high time I quit it,
I just couldn’t carry on that way.”  — 
The Long Run, The Eagles

 

In the short run, there is never as much time as you wish there were.

In the long run, constraints will clear up, and more time will be available.

In the short run, you can ‘fake it till you make it.’

In the long run, you can’t.

In the short run, you can get it up and running.

In the long run, you’ll spend most of your time managing whatever you got up and running so quickly.

In the short run, decisions feel more urgent and are made quickly.

In the long run, you’ll feel the benefits of a strategic plan.

In the short run, it’s better to panic and push against perceived emergencies and urgencies.

In the long run, spending time with people you love, doing work that matters is all that matters.

In the short run, a little bit of exposure is worth a lot.

In the long run, a little bit of consistency is worth a lot more.

In the short run, you can leave the environment for someone else to worry about.

In the long run, the environment in which we live is what we need to live.

In the short run, the ends will justify the means.

In the long run, consistency will be your calling card.

In the short run, it’s ok not to take life too seriously.

In the long run, taking serious things at least a little seriously will pay off.

In the short run, teaching yourself will work.

In the long run, education pays off.

In the short run, getting it done is better than perfect.

In the long run, building things of value matters.

In the short run, it’s pretty easy to see that it’s all about the long run.
