In the short-term, there are certain things that are under your control that require focus and attention, such as:

  • Improving the value of your business
  • Improving certain efficiencies within your business
  • Associating with good exit strategy professionals
  • Building a successful exit strategy team
  • Following a step-by-step process to sell your business.

The following, written by American theologian, Reinhold Niebuhr, might help us keep focused on the short-term things that are under our control.

God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from another.
