The Long Game

What is “the long game?”  Is it worth playing?

In a culture dead set on overnight success, magic diet pills and easy buttons, why care about the long game?

Coincidentally, I recorded this podcast about two months before I published it or before anybody else had heard it.   Since that time I have done two interviews with very successful entrepreneurs who basically said all the same things I say in this podcast about the long game.

The long game is often overlooked for the quick fix.  For the overnight success story.  For the magic pill.

But those who know the price of success know a different path.  A longer path.  A path that they will travel as long as it takes to get there.

This is not for everybody.  In fact, as far as new businesses go, about 80-90% of people will fail and/or jump ship on whatever they start in the first 5 years.  This is a staggering number!

But many of them just had no real idea what it takes to be successful in business.

They see cool pictures of a “successful” person on the beach sipping drinks and “making millions” from their laptop and think that’s how it goes.  That it’s easy.

But nothing could be further from the truth!

It’s possible yes, absolutely.

But what does it really take?

How long are you willing to stick with it?

Are you chasing paper, looking for a quick and easy win, or are you in it for the long haul?
