Tell me that you know what to do next year?
Yes, 2021 is around the corner. Another lockdown is in the offing.
Who would have thought a year ago that we will have to endure and even thrive in this crisis?
One thing before you start planning is to CELEBRATE your achievements.
Do this in a contemplative state where even the minutest things in life are worth rejoicing about.
The second thing to do is THINK ABOUT WHAT WORKED as opposed to all the negative issues that arose out of the pandemic. There must be, think hard if you can't find, even a single thing that worked well in your business or organization as you adjusted, modified, and recalibrated your actions.
The third thing to do before planning is to FIND THE RIGHT INTERSECTION between your intention (Objectives), where the traction is (Business opportunities), and your passion.
This is difficult, especially at this point, where you might have to pivot in a slightly different way, ala curbside ordering or take-out for restaurants, phone-appointments for salons, phone consults instead of in-person, putting on lots of Zoom videos and online courses for academic and training businesses. etc.
Ask yourself, if the current business model is not working, how do you get to your objectives without putting monies down the drain? What opportunities exist during this crisis for leveraging? What new passions have surfaced in the course of your adaptation? Finding the right intersection may get you on the long but sure road to recovery and in a new place for your organization.
Do these three things and you'll have the right positive mental scape to begin anew.
