Zen Jeweler: Go Ahead, Swing the Club

Published

on

Parables by Jeff McCandlessBusiness, like golf, requires a delicate balance of attention. 
 
 
And sometimes, the deliberative process can hurt you more than it helps. If you stand over the golf bag too long, wondering what the perfect club is, your opponents, who have been switching from club to club, practicing their swings and talking to their caddies, have learned more about which club to use than you have. Don’t give your opponents too much time to practice. The longer you stand still, the more unsure you become. Take a club, make a mistake, learn from it, and your next club will be the right one. 
 
 
Oh, and don’t do what I’ve seen too many people do: They keep picking the same club, their ?go-to? club, the one that keeps them from ever learning to use the other clubs.  
 
 
THE TAKEAWAY: Bring versatility to your game.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
