Are you concentrating on your next steps forward or are you still caught up in the past? Everyone has a story, yet, time is still moving everyone forward.
As 2020 comes to a close people are often reflective of what went wrong, what twisted and turned, and all the things that were out of control. Regardless of how much trauma occurred somethings are still poised for forward motion.
There are sales funnels that can still be tapped, there are educational opportunities that expand minds, skills, and broaden opportunity. Along the way there have been new projects, different angles, and changing approaches.
Consider doors that have opened, doors knocked on, and doors left ajar. Connections that have been reestablished, built from scratch, or simply stumbled upon.
Young trees take years to bear fruit. It is often true for businesses and careers too.
All of these things provide opportunity for what will happen in the future.
Next Steps Forward
The best time to start preparing for what your business or career will like next year, or in two or three years, is right now.
Every moment spent wallowing in the aftermath of things gone wrong is a moment that you are not preparing for what comes next.
A new season is about to begin.
In rural areas, farmers will begin to think of the crops for the next season. The seeds that they’ll plant, the cultivation they’ll do, and the harvest that they will yield.
Whether you are rural, urban, or somewhere in between the race is on and it often rewards those who start early.
Don’t waste any more time.
The best time for next steps is right now.
