The business bunny hop

The majority of men meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail. - Napoleon Hill

In business, and life for that matter, our vision of success often doesn’t occur on our time table. It’s more of a dance, maybe a bunny hop (forward, backwards, hop, hop, hop and then you do a little dance where you’re standing). It’s not always forward movement.
