Marketing Field’s Rainmaking Recommendations are on hiatus until April, so today, I’m bringing you one from 2010 that seems particularly apropos following St. Patrick’s Day. Jaimie’s original post was published on St. Paddy’s Day, 2010.
In deference to the fact that today is St. Patrick’s Day, today’s Rainmaking Recommendation is about Luck.
The fact is that to be a Rainmaker it is not about being lucky, it is about doing the work necessary to become a Rainmaker. Many attorneys will never become successful Rainmakers because they are unwilling to put in the effort which will make them successful Rainmakers.
Seneca , a Roman Philosopher & politician (5 BC to 65 AD) once said: “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”
Are you prepared? Have you carved out time during your day, each day to perform one or more Rainmaking task? Are you getting out of the office and doing the work which will put you in the “right place at the right time?” If you take forty-five minutes per day, every day during the business week, you will actually have more than 18 hours of marketing time per month. Everyone has the ability to carve out that time from all of the wasted time necessary to become a Rainmaker.
Rainmakers do not rely upon luck; they have a plan which they put into practice on a daily basis knowing that all of the work will pay off.
Are you prepared to meet your “luck”?
Rainmaking Recommendations are sent the first and third Wednesdays of the month. They are bite size tips that when implemented will cause you to make rain.
