Summer is over - So now what?

Fall is now upon us and the summer is a softly fading memory. The days are growing shorter, the leaves are turning color and some are shedding already. Now what?

Where do you go from here?

Henry R. Luce who published "Time," "Life" and other magazines once wrote, "Business more than any other occupation is a continual dealing with the future; it is a continual calculation, an instinctive exercise in foresight."

Whether you are an entrepreneur, leading edge manager, or a rising star employee; taking time to consider the future, as you may encounter it, is one of the most important activities in which you invest. Your career is important - why not invest in it now!

Perhaps you took some time to reflect on your future and that of your team or company over the summer? Great! So now what?

  • Where do you go from here?
  • What changes are you going to initiate to re-invent yourself and ensure what you offer is more attractive and beneficial to your prospective clients?
  • What changes are you going to revise in your processes to make them more effective?
    What investments are you going to put into your personal skills training and that of your team?
  • How will you prepare for future success and service?
  • What is your 'next' move or 'next' level to strive for?

You see, each of us is continually making changes and decisions which affect our future.

I've been quoted as saying, "The best way to predict the future is to invent it or create it!"

That "creation" is an act of faith and a deliberate forward thinking action we take... we have the opportunity to take personal leadership in making our lives what we imagine and in making the lives of our clients, colleagues, family and friends, better than they ever imagined.
