Operating a business is like running a marathon of sprints. Recognizing the time to sprint and the time to recover is incredibly important.

Know that others are sprinting with you.

It takes endurance to persevere through the long and sometimes difficult times. There are many challenges along the way and no matter how much experience you have, there will always be new competitors and new challenges ahead. While you personally may be prepared to go the distance, others may hit the wall.

Learn from them.

They are your pacer which is of huge value. Often times, those who are slower to the finish line offer you insights along the way, you may have not otherwise seen. Sprinting too long is exhausting. Going too fast, you might miss some of the subtleties that could help ensure that you win the race.

Enjoy the recovery times.

Recognize and take advantage of them. Above all, know your allies, the ones around you who will help you run the path to success the most clearly!
