Take Time to Reflect
As many of us take extra time away from work this July 4, reflect on the past four months, embrace today, and plan for what may lie ahead.
What a year this has been.
Your role has changed.
How you interact with colleagues and customers has changed.
The mix of products and services your company provides may have changed.
Think back to the start of the year.
In January, you were full of optimism — 2020 was going to be the start of an awesome decade.
Throughout February you had unceasing enthusiasm for business, family, friends, and success. 2020 was looking great.
Then March hit. Like a migraine.
Our lives were turned upside down, not once but continually like the constant spin of a washing machine.
Since then, you have adjusted. Readjusted.
Tried one approach. Perhaps another. You have revised your plans and made new ones. You may have changed your business strategically to support your community, co-workers, friends, and family.
We’re not sure what tomorrow, the next quarter or the next six months will bring. Reach out for support, collaborate with colleagues and friends. Inspiration and guidance may come from the least likely sources.
The past six months have presented new challenges and provided new opportunities. The second half of 2020 is going to be different from the first half. Reflect on what you have achieved and build on those accomplishments to provide perspective for your path forward
