Last week, I heard an old song by Lauryn Hill and The Fugees, “Ready or not, here I come, you can’t hide | I’m going to find you…” Trust me, you don’t have to know the song to relate to the lyrics. However, it made me think 2022 is here and is not being docile at all! Are you Ready or Not?
Unexpected events like wildfires, snowstorms, and surprise contract wins, have abruptly started the year in spite of all the planning we may have done. Good or bad, we don’t know what’s coming next or more importantly HOW it’s coming. Client budgets and motivations may be impacted by the uncertainty in today’s business climate. Whatever the year is bringing, there is one thing entrepreneurs must do… Keep going!
Lessons learned from Covid show that we can’t sit still and allow outside environments to paralyze us. Allow me to share a motto I often use when I’m in a quandary. “Indecision is the thief of opportunity. It will steal you blind.” Marcus Tullius Cicero uttered these wise words over 2,000 years ago. Who knew they would be applicable even today? Monitor your processes closely, spend conservatively but DON’T STOP. Remember you are more prepared than you think. Use your frameworks, quarterly plan, and the support of your Her Corner community to help you put one foot in front of the other. Let 2022 know you are READY to ride the waves.
You got this so let’s get it done.
What things will you do in 2022 to stay prepared? How ready do you feel to move forward in your Bossiness!
