28-07-2021 News Update 171

Hello, Calvin here…….

I hope that most people who read my weekly news updates are career driven or are passionate about growing their small or part-time business.

Your career is important to you and you want to show growth to maximise profitability.

If this is the case then I would like you to think about these two questions:
Is achieving your career/business goals in the shortest period of time important to you?

Are you 100 % sure you can make your career/ business goals possible or do you depend on circumstances and a measure of luck? 

I am always amazed at how people continue to procrastinate in general and how they keep postponing important decisions. Surely, they have a money saving strategy in place to make sure they can achieve their goals. 

Unfortunately there just seems to be no sense of urgency.

If you look at successful people in general, you will always get the impression that they like to get things done sooner rather than later. And time is important to them and not to be wasted. 

Goals should not be left for tomorrow if you can make an effort to achieve them today. 

In the same way, they do not allow anything to get in the way of their pursuit to achieve their goals.

I always get the sense that these career-driven people have a clear plan and know what they want to achieve and by when. They never have excuses and tend to make things happen.

Often, what seems impossible to the outsider, they have the ability to achieve and make these ”impossible” goals happen.  They believe in themselves and that their goals are possible. 

They believe in their own plan and they do not doubt their plan, hard work and effort will show positive results.

They reach all of their achievements in the shortest period of time that you would never have thought possible.

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.
