Allan Branch: “Dear Friends, Please Don’t Ask for Help. Unless…”
Here’s the truth: You are the reason you are not successful. You make choices with what to do with your time. You choose not to work on or release that project you’ve been thinking of or tinkering with. You choose not to go to a conference and meet people, or to go but not to make friends with the speakers. You choose to watch TV or sleep instead of doing something to help yourself. You are the one who asks for my time, but can’t find any of your own. You are the one who listens to advice but doesn’t act on it.
So dear friend, I am here for you. I love you, I want you to succeed. I want to help you and support you and encourage you, but you have to find the time to help yourself.
