There may never be a better time to take a look at your life, where you have been, and most importantly, WHERE you want to go.
A lot of talk about the PIVOT, the turn, the new path. Yet many of us who have executed multiple streams of income have made a very small pivot, hardly noticeable, toward the stream that is working and away from those that are not.
IF you take the time to assess, and need to make changes, then next would be a PLAN. How and what do you have to do? I like time frame plans, but others like open ended goals, and some have spent several years getting closer.
What will you be doing NEXT YEAR, on May 1, 2021?
What, and why? Then HOW?
If you Assess, Plan then you must EXECUTE the plan.
Assess. Plan. Execute. That is the APEman way to the future you want.
And if you do Execute, be prepared to Adjust, Pivot, Enjoy the journey.
I think it is a great time to get started on your NEXT, but not your next Netflix binge, eh?
That's an awesome (and wise) post!
Another related question...
What will things look like, this time next year?
- Will we be out of the pandemic, and back to normal?
- Will we be in the middle of a second wave... worse than the first one?
- Will the country, and the world, have descended into anarchy?
We already see some (not looking good) signs... Meat is starting to be in short supply...
Will people draw guns to get that last chicken drumstick?
I hope not...
Expect the worst, but hope for the best...
That's a good "survival" slogan!
Here's my prediction...
Sorry to be a bit of a "downer" - but I like to try to be a "realist"...
I don't think we'll be out of it in a year's time.
I think there will be a second wave...
The 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic had a second wave, worse than the first...
But... I don't think we'll descend into complete anarchy...
I believe in the positivity of the human spirit...!
