This week, I’m in Tecate, Mexico at a wellness resort called Rancho la Puerta.

When it was founded 84 years ago, the Ranch was a small summer camp with very primitive accommodations. Slowly, over decades, the operation grew and developed to be one of the top-rated destination spas in the world.

Deborah Szekely, who co-founded the Ranch with her late husband, is about to turn 102 years old this Spring. She still is very much involved with the Ranch and speaks to guests every week about her experiences.

When asked yesterday what she considered the greatest learning from her century-plus years of experience, Deborah said, “We started from nothing. We worked with what we had and we grew slowly as we could without expecting things to change overnight.”

How often do we expect to jump into a new venture and have it succeed immediately? How many times are we disappointed because something didn’t grow and prosper as quickly as we would have liked? What if we just stuck with the basics and continued to focus on slow, incremental progress forward?

Deborah has one piece of advice she’s relied on throughout her life: “Do the right thing and it will work out in the end.”


Let us help your business rise to the top.
