I’m an optimist because there isn’t a good enough reason to be anything else. Pheonix will rise from the ashes, despite what you may be hearing or reading. In the end, what we regret the most are the chances we never took. It’s not all doom and gloom. Dark clouds can have a silver lining. Where there is chaos, there is opportunity. Where there is a gap – there is room for someone to fill it. Timing is everything, and there has never been a better time than now. But don’t wait too long. The window of opportunity will close.
Worth Remembering … “Excuses will always be there for you – but opportunity won’t.” – Unknown
The landscape is littered with going out of business signs. Small, independently-owned businesses have been the hardest hit. Main street has been boarded up. Restaurants that have been in the family for generations are gone. Your local hardware store is closed. Hair salons, clothing and shoe stores have all but disappeared. A sad testament to the turbulent times we find ourselves in. But in spite of it all, the timing to get into business for yourself couldn’t be better. It’s not all doom and gloom. Find the silver lining in those dark clouds. Look for that window of opportunity. But don’t wait too long. The window of opportunity will close.
Worth Remembering … “The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity.” Ann Rand
The great resignation, a wave of workers leaving their jobs, has left employers scrambling to fill positions from entry-level to senior management. According to a recent survey conducted by Robert Half, a leading recruitment agency, 33% of employed Generation Z and Millennial Professionals polled reported they plan to pursue a new job in the coming year. That’s not a bad thing. The timing to get promoted and take on a leadership role in your organization or change careers couldn’t be better. It’s not all doom and gloom. Will those dark clouds have a sliver lining for you? If you wait too long your window of opportunity will close. – Act now.
