Life Changes In both life and business, the only constant is change. One thing you can be sure of is that your current life-situation is not permanent. Your kids will grow up, you move up in your job, take on greater responsibilities, you will experience loss and unforeseen circumstances. The list of things that will not remain the same in life is limitless. In business as in life the rhetoric is the same. That client you built your career around moves to another city/country and decides they want to utilise locals and someone else becomes their “go to service provider” or their circumstances change unexpectedly where your services are no longer required. The scenarios are endless. When we become too comfortable with ourselves and our current position, skills can become stale and you will be taken by surprise when that unforeseen event occurs. Keep your eyes open, maintain situational awareness to all that is going on in your life and that of your principal or clients, keep learning, networking and be prepared to pivot if and when required. Remember the 6 P’s Prior Preparation and Planning Prevents Poor Performance. Like an athlete, performance is better when you are warmed up and ready. Setting off without the warmup, you are likely to pull that muscle and fall short. Keep yourself “warmed up” and ready for whatever comes next in your life.
