Lou Ludwig Success Tips: For Those Who Stand Still

For Those Who Stand Still


For Those Who Stand Still

“Anyone who is satisfied to stand still should not complain

when others pass them.”  



As I see it . . . . . . .


For those who stand still


For those who stand still . . . . will be left behind by a changing business environment.


For those who stand still . . . . will be dug up in a 1000 years from  and be seem a fossil  of a long lost business model.


For those who stand still . . . . will be covered by the sands of time.


For those who stand still . . . . will become a target for the business models that are coming and going.


For those who adapt and adjust to the business cycles  . . . . will past those who are stuck in the quicksand of standing still.


There is only certainly  . . . . and that certainly is change. We may not like it or welcome it . . . . but it’s here to stay.


For those who stand still . . . . will fade out of sight.  For those who adapt . . . . Adjust . . . . will make the most out of change and put themselves into a position to become the business leaders.

Lou, that is so true!  My mother used to say "rest and rust"... not a good thing!

Happy Halloween Lou! The image of someone being stuck in quicksand is the most powerful image to describe standing still. Thanks!

Hey Lou,

Anybody standing still in real estate isn't paying the bills.

There is time for stillness.. but in business, times to act become more frequent. :)
