getting the timing right

Getting the timing right

Last year, I tried growing vegetables from seed. I started them late and didn’t have once piece of equipment that helps them grow. This year, determined not to make the same mistake twice, I started them significantly earlier. And they are going to town! If the earlier warmer temperatures don’t materialize like predicted this year, I’ll be too early. Getting the timing right is a delicate balance I’m finding.

The same sort of thing happens in business. It’s hard to get timing exactly right when key elements are out of your control. Better to start early so you can adjust. Trying to make up for lost time is difficult, if not impossible.
