Things will most certainly move even faster the coming year, and there will be bumps in the road for us to learn from. It is time to reflect, and make a game changing plan for 2017!
From the book A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens written already 1859 at the dawn of the first industrial revolution with similar unknowns ahead, we can read; “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us….”
Now, more than ever, we need to chart our own path both professionally and for our business and to create our future. And we will all be challenged on how to achieve it or at least to start the journey.
As a source for inspiration you might, as I have done, find some insights for the year to come in my recently updated digital bookshelf.
Finally, sometimes its good to reflect on how things are not always what they seem to be. In Malcom Gladwell’s podcast series Revisionist History, he goes back and reinterpret things from the past, in an enlightening and entertaining way.
It has never been a better time to grasp the opportunities ahead and I wish you all a Healthy, Exciting and Prosperous 2017!
