VIDEO: Why Winners Won’t Wait

Winners don’t have time to procrastinate. This video is sponsored by the MyPlace4Parts Studio.

Procrastination is the act of delaying or postponing something that should be done. It’s also responsible for numerous business quotations and motivational posters. This video is sponsored by the MyPlace4Parts Studio.

American hardworker Benjamin Franklin once said, “never leave that ‘till tomorrow which you can do today.” Of course, American humorist Mark Twain later laughed, “Never put off ‘till tomorrow, what you can do the day after tomorrow.”

Procrastination is when you know what to do and when you should do it, but delay doing it anyway. This is a disadvantageous behavior that hinders productivity.

Obviously, if you, your business and/or your employees are postponing something that should be done today until tomorrow, you’re not maximizing your time and your results will suffer.

Too often, we say we’re waiting for the perfect time to get something done. In reality, we’re just waiting.

• Don’t wait for success – Go get it.

U.S. Army General George S. Patton said “A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.” While while you don’t want to make rash, hasty decisions, you also can’t afford to lose ground and risk failure due to your inability to act quickly.

• Face Your Challenges Head On

Even though it’s human nature to want to avoid difficulties, high-achievers typically excel at overcoming challenges to reach their goals. They are proactive and demonstrate a sense of urgency. Procrastinators are reactive, taking the path of least resistance and avoiding challenges.

• Go All In

When you’re fully committed to something, you’re focused and motivated to take action and get the job done. If you’re not passionate about it, it’s easier to just let it slide.

Issac Newton’s First Law of Motion states, a body at rest will remain at rest until an outside force acts on it. That’s as true with our productivity as it is with bricks and apples. Effective leadership and a “winning team culture” are tremendous forces to get people motivated, moving and progressing – minimizing procrastination.

It’s easier than ever to be overwhelmed by necessary but ultimately low-value activities or by exciting, interesting no-value activities. Winners don’t let the wants get in the way of the musts or they find mediocrity taking the place of a championship.

Welcome to the Lubegard Limited Slip Supplement overview. Clutch-based limited slip differentials are common on many automotive applications like trucks and SUVs, but they present a unique problem. These differentials often use different clutch configurations, either cone or flat type, made with various materials and frictional requirements. When both wheels have ample traction, the clutch plates bind together tightly, sending consistent power to each wheel. When one wheel slips, additional power is sent to the other wheel based on the frictional properties of the clutch packs. This is where the gear lubricants frictional properties play an important role in functionality and performance.
