In all the above quotes, success is not achieved overnight. To get better, there is need for additional actions on a daily basis towards achieving that success.

For your growth to be ever increasing, you will always have to treat each day seriously as it is significant. Habits like getting lazy, postponing or procrastinating take away your abilities as an individual and as a successful entrepreneur.
Develop the tendency to treat each day as a key instant to your success. You will be increasing your chances today and continuously developing a better tomorrow. Develop that inner drive to see each moment to be exceptional and critical.
“Everyone should have a sense of urgency – it is getting more done in a short period of time in a cool, sure manner.” – Bob Proctor
At times sense of urgency may be interpreted to mean a sense of emergency by some entrepreneurs. As a successful entrepreneur, in addition to keeping that inner fire burning, you will need to develop wisdom to determine what is important from urgency. The approach in this quote is that urgency will not always mean everything is to be treated as an emergency. You can achieve urgency while being calm but purposeful as being in a rush will not mean you are productive as you will just be straining yourself.
The true sense of urgency will entail close observation of time whereby you do the best you can and the most you can while still respecting time adequately to plan and stop when necessary to do so. Urgency is the respect for the continuous aspect of time, both now and future time whereby you push ahead but still ensure you do the best possible along the way. It is all about being ever motivated and moving both yourself and your business forward always without being shoddy.
