Take Time to Reflect

This February marks two years since Whitney Houston died and fans are still mourning.

We start each day looking at our reflection in the mirror. That reflection is powerful. In a glance, we make an assessment of our appearance and what we have to offer, what we may be able to change right now (like tucking in a shirt or smoothing a collick), what we may be able to enhance now (such as lip colour or adding jewelry), and what we can improve upon over time (such as weight loss or reducing acne).  Later, we drive to our destination using the reflection in the rear view mirrors to help us make decisions on how to move forward and stay safe.

This month marks two years since Whitney Houston's untimely death. So many positive interviews, quotes, and contributions have been unearthed since her death that I can't help but wonder what would have happened if her last days had been brightened with some of the encouragement, compassion, and perspective on her life that was shared after her death. Unfortunately, death tends to be when our contributions, accomplishments and talents are celebrated. Similarly, in business, some of my most heartfelt advice has come from former business owners, small business owners after product failure...

The important thing is to incorporate what we see going on behind us into our decision making, while maintaining our focus and speed moving ahead. That is the beauty of taking time to reflect on your business performance even when you are doing okay --you can focus on your strengths and build up your weaknesses.

Wanna know more?

Good. Because I have more to share next week:)
