I’m delighted to announce the launch of the new DeFinis Communications website! Much has changed in the world of web design since our last site was created in 2007, and it was definitely time for an upgrade. You may be wondering what took us so long.
I have been meaning to upgrade our website for several years. In fact, I’ve had the best intentions and grandest plans, but just never got around to it. The timing never seemed right. I was incessantly busy with other things so I kept putting it off. I later realized I resisted doing what I knew needed to be done not only because I was too busy, but also because it was going to be hard work.
Sound familiar? The very excuses my clients give me as to why they don’t practice and improve their presentation skills were my reasons for not tackling my website. But as we all know, procrastination rarely pays off. It reminded me of Peter Drucker’s wise words: “Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.”
Yes, it was hard to get started, but once I made the commitment everything changed. I met great people, thoroughly enjoyed the creative process, and in the end developed something that I am proud of and know will be of value to our clients and prospects.
So if you have something important to do, don’t wait! Whether you want to improve your website, your relationships with your co-workers or boss, or your presentation skills, dive right in. Resist the urge to avoid the hard work and in the process, you may surprise yourself.
As Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe said: “Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”
