Those that anticipate 2021 to be the turn of a page, a clean slate with 2020’s problems behind us, might be in for great disappointment. A change in calendar date does not come with any solutions, we need to activate change ourselves.
Yes the world is at the most remarkable turning point in history, but did this happen suddenly or were we ignoring the signs? This complete overhaul in the way we live and work have been coming for a while, the pandemic merely took us forward a couple of years. We were always going to be here. Those reluctant to change have now been forced to as a means to survive.
Many people and business are at cliff’s end and with no turn around in sight. Well there is a turn around – CHANGE.
Change, and changing fast and often is one of the most powerful weapons we posses. It sets us apart, keeps us in front of the race and prepares us for big surprises.
Forget About New Year’s Resolutions & Seek Regular Change Instead
A big driver of a change-in-thinking this time of year, is New Year’s Resolutions. Don’t be fooled by the facade. As individuals and as businesses we are often desperate to feel better about ourselves or our circumstances going into a new year. A New Year’s resolution is nothing more than an empty promise. Why do you need a new calendar date to make big changes in your life or business? We need the adaptability to change as and when we need to remain competitive.
Own the ability to change fast and efficiently
When you do your strategic planning for the year, remember to set many smaller goals. Staying in the race takes motivation and nothing boosts motivation like small victories. Many smaller goals will make it easier for you to apply changes to your strategy when something does not go according to your plans.
Align With Strategic Partners That Understand Change
Change is extremely difficult and uncomfortable for most people. With the right strategic partners by your side, change could be your greatest advantage in 2021. Your turning point this year might just be attainable.
Let’s work together and make this happen so that we can change the title fo this article to “2021 The Year Of Change”.
