Spend 70% of your time and energy on building the relationship. 

 20% on exploring possibility. 

And only 10% on action.  

Don't act too quickly.

Without a strong relationship you won't have built enough trust. Trust is the essential foundation for exploration and action. It is needed for when things don't go to plan and things invariably don't go to plan. 

Without a deep exploration of the possibilities you won't know what actions to take and what not to take.

Act only after a strong relationship has been built.

You know it has, when you find yourselves instinctively exploring opportunities that surround.

Then and only then act. Act confidently within the safety of your trusting relationship borne of curiosity, exploration and possibility.
