Are you a thermometer or a thermostat?

Thermometers are instruments that measure temperature. Thermostats are devices that control the desired temperature.
The difference between the two is critical.
Thermometers are reactive. They sit by passively and accept whatever conditions their environment has created for them.
Conversely, thermostats exert control. When the environment isn’t quite right, perhaps it’s too hot or too cold, the thermostat pro-actively adjusts to obtain the desired conditions.
Successful entrepreneurs are typically thermostats. Think about it.
