January is the perfect time to reflect on the year you had and prepare yourself for future success. But what a year 2020 has been, a year full of changes and unexpected challenges. I do not believe anyone calculated a pandemic in the business plan. 2020 showed us how important it is to embrace change and to be flexible in order to have a successful business. Many people were forced to think out of the box and take rapid action in order to survive. Others suddenly saw their businesses booming…who thought it would take a pandemic to get everyone cycling? It has been amazing to see how quickly one can act under pressure. Things that normally take years could be accomplished in a few weeks…businesses changed their complete strategy or production process at a record speed. We have also witnessed an incredible and heartwarming show of strength, resilience, and kindness across the globe. From healthcare professionals working day and night, to entrepreneurs coming up with creative solutions to battle the pandemic. I invite you to read the blog I started on March 13 to read their unique stories. Let’s remember the lessons that 2020 has thaught us. Sit down for a few moments and write down 3 things you started to do in 2020 that you want to keep on doing in the future. I cordially invite you to join my webinar on February 3rd about The Art of Flexible Thinking : how to recognize the need for change, adapt your strategy to a new reality and prepare yourself for success in 2021. I am wishing you and your loved ones a beautiful and bright 2021.
