Did you know that 70-80 percent of all projects fail because they are lacking follow-up or follow through?

It’s true. This means that all of the pre-work is planned and executed – and then, all of that hard work gets tossed into the trash. It’s all for nothing without proper follow-up and follow through.

Imagine this. You walk into a restaurant. A hostess seats you and your family. You are given menus to review the choices. You see the cooks in the kitchen, preparing up something scrumptious. You can smell the delicious dishes. You have silverware, a glass, a plate and a napkin. But, your waitress forgot to follow-up. You didn’t even have a chance to order. You’re let down before you even taste their famous food. In other words, their food’s reputation means nothing to you because nobody followed through. It’s too late for whatever is supposedly so great.

Whether you’re the one doing business or you’re the business looking for help, remember that skirting around these two steps means you’re further from achieving your success. Follow-up and follow through to do what most forget to do.
