Zen Jeweler: Go Ahead, Swing the Club

Published

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.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
