Fresh Starts

Be patient with yourself. Self growth is tender; it is holy ground. There’s no greater investment. Steven Covey.


The pandemic is beginning to recede, albeit slowly. The lockdown is easing. For many it has been a time for serious self-reflection.

A few have decided it is time for a change and to start afresh.

Sometimes a fresh start is difficult. Even as it naturally comes with an initial burst of motivation, starting over isn’t as easy as it sounds. There will be times with as many downs as ups.

Fresh starts are not for the weak of heart. Often it means doing something you’ve never done before; but as you start out again, don’t be deterred by what you don’t have and what you don’t know. Start working and do the best you can with what you’ve got. One thing will lead to the next.

Keep believing in yourself and in your own special abilities.

Coming to grips with the new can be one of your greatest strengths. It forces you to dig deeper and push you into doing things differently from everyone else – remembering, in the words attributed to a James Crooks, that if you want to lead the orchestra, sometimes you have to turn your back to the audience. It’s a thought with which I heartedly concur, especially in to-day’s hyper-competitive, global market place.

Welcome to 2021 and the future. It’s already here.

Over to you.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.
