Here’s a quote from the book : “Even if you have a successful week, a successful month, or a successful year, that doesn’t mean you should ever stop prospecting. One of the biggest mistakes that we make is we convince ourselves that we don’t have to prospect on a regular basis. We get happy and complacent with our existing business and think we don’t have to seek new business.”

Prospect constantly, every single day.
