Here goes Blog quote #371...
"Dig a well before you are thirsty."
This could also be called pre-networking. Maybe even planting seeds and tilling them for days, months, even years? The idea here is to start forming your relationships well(no pun intended) before you'll ever "need" them.
It's also called planning. Some might even look at it as preperation. The great marketing and envelope genius Harvey Mackay wrote a book with this title... 'How to dig your well before you are thirsty.' It's filled with great lessons and ideas.
The old adage is ringing in my ear as I type this... 'He who fails to plan, plans to fail (maybe Coach Wooden's quote?). So, it might not be a bad idea to start a little digging. Summer's coming ,and it tends to get quite hot!
That's my view...what say you?
