Hello, Calvin here again.
Have you met people like this? I have and I always think to myself “WOW” I wish I had that kind of drive within myself”.
Speed is important in any business today. Technology makes companies more successful in a shorter period of time compared to 10 years ago.
So we must learn to take advantage of this “speed” and get out of our comfort zone.
People and companies today which are still dependent on traditional ways of doing business and not taking advantage of eCommerce or digital marketing methods are going to experience slow or negative growth. That is my prediction.
So now is the time, I believe, when we should revisit our goals and ask ourselves why have we not achieved our goals yet.
Why does things take longer for us to happen compared to others with similar goals.
Most of the reasons are because we are not taking advantage of the speed of doing business that technology offers.
And we are not learning the courses to become tech-educated.
Do we know the latest software related to our industry or are we still “old-school”.
The best way to overcome any “delayed dream” is to start the learning process again.
A commitment to continuous learning is the way we refine our plans and abilities.
Once we have the right tech-skills and are more goal-driven again, then circumstances will change.
We must find ourselves “impatient” again to make things happen even faster in our careers or business.
As the owner of Calvin Academy, I also lecture all about Entrepreneurship and leadership to my students.
In one of my recent lectures, I stressed the importance of always being fully prepared. This preparation includes keeping your computer design skills current and “sharp”.
You cannot “wake up” and realize you need specific software skills related to your industry when the opportunity presents itself.
Then it is already too late.
To learn new skills takes time and money.
You have to save up and plan for a course well in advance.
Attempting to learn “instantly” with a few YouTube videos is not going to equip you
with the skills you require when a new client project arises.
You must be aware of the trends in your industry and prepare for it now, so when the opportunity arises in the future, then you are already fully prepared and the success of the outcome is more likely than trying to rush into any new challenge.
I personally help my young graduates overcome these 2 barriers by ensuring that their CV and reference letters are professional and clear and then I connect with the prospective owners myself and promote them.
In this way they are able to by-pass any manager who confuses young as being inexperienced and immature.
This means that I make an effort to connect with companies looking for digital designers to maintain their eCommerce site and maintain their Social Media Marketing as well.
This coming month I will be working hard with students to get their CVs ready and to help ALL my students take advantage of this February window of opportunity.
