Speed is a great habit for an entrepreneur

For anyone that has spent time in the corporate world, one of the biggest frustrations can be the amount of time taken to make a decision and actually implement it. For many of us, it’s a good reminder of why we became entrepreneurs in the first place, to have the freedom of making things happen quickly and efficiently, without the burden of bureaurocracy holding us back. Speed is a great habit for an entrepreneur to have, and it’s worth reminding ourselves regularly that making decisions and getting our products and services to market quickly, rather than perfectly, is critical for success. The famous US General George Patton hit the nail on the head when he said: A good plan executed now is better than a perfect plan next week. If we develop speed as a habit, our businesses also gain velocity.
