Four Oh Seven has been in business roughly 8 months, but every day is still a learning process. As we're coming close to the end of our first year, we're starting to evaluate what we've done and discuss what we will want for year two of the biz. It's been an amazing few weeks of epiphanies and discussions and dreaming and excitement for what's to come!
That being said, sometimes when I get dreamy I get anxious to get moving right away. I want to start living in that future and seeing it come to life! I get so excited I feel like I just can't wait for it! But then I remember, I have to practice what I preach. Changes don't happen overnight and they especially don't without all the hard work in the middle.
HOLD THE VISION.
I can't let the time it will take in the middle warp my vision. Doing the work can be tough. Doing the work can be exhausting. And that makes it easy to find yourself compromising on your end goal and slowly letting your vision slip into something a little more comfortable. We just have to remain mindful of this and keep the vision in clear sight.
TRUST THE PROCESS.
We're big believers in process at Four Oh Seven. Partially because we live in different states. We need it to keep things moving and stay on the same page with a project. But also, because we just believe that process is what makes things work. While there are awesome tools out there that can help most processes be quicker and more efficient, there just isn't a shortcut to get around hard work and the time it takes.
