“Ready or not, here I come! – 2020

When you look back…

did you ever really feel ready or prepared to…
-pick a career?
-have a kid?
-launch a business?

Maybe your answer is “yes”…but I’d say, for the most part, many aspects of your life came about by simply moving forward, doing the best with what you knew at the time, and taking a shot.

Sometimes your shot landed, and sometimes your face landed. But, by simply moving forward, even if that meant falling forward, you went a direction: forward.

2020 is almost here. This particular New Year and new decade is giving motivational folks a lot of kitschy and playful themes to play upon, my favorite of which is “Seeing Clearly.”

You may not feel ready or prepared for a whole new game coming in a few short weeks. And, honestly, there’s no new game coming at all if you don’t want one. It’s everyone’s choice to either choose the made-up ritual of New Year transformation or not.

But, if you ARE interested in getting on the inspirational growth train for your own life, even as it revs up to leave the station, there’s no time like the present to start seeing clearly for New Year/New Decade/New Opportunity ahead.

Next week, I’ll have some tools available for you to begin your take-myself-to-the-next-level prep. Heck, if you email me back directly, I’ll even send you a starter exercise right now.

Yet, no matter where you go, there you are. So, if you’re going into 2020, ready or not, which you will you bring? I suggest the one that’s as ready as possible.

Where, when, and how can you fit your New Year/New Decade/New You planning into your busy holiday schedule? When will you do that? Who will you tell who will hold you accountable? These are GREAT December 4th questions to ask yourself!

If you’d like a year-end/year-start review of your career or business goals, schedule a session here. You’ll more likely move forward when you have a committed listener involved.

Got ready you?

“People get ready, there’s a train comin’.” – Curtis Mayfield
