These Changing Times

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. Lao Tzu.


It’s hard to believe that Fall is just around the corner. The Covid-19 pandemic has messed with all our senses of time.

It has been a rough year and a half for everybody, challenging in so many ways.

It isn’t over yet, but as we get beyond the crest and hopefully begin to put the experiences behind us, the conundrum facing many is whether to just give full throttle to their current activities or, perhaps, referencing their lockdown pledges, pause for a deep rethink about the arc of their lives.

Whatever the direction, you’ll have to choose for yourself. The one thing you can count on, for sure, is that change is on the wind. But that’s good news. Change brings with it new growth and unimagined opportunities. The trick is how to adapt to the new circumstances.

There are no easy answers. Life doesn’t work that way. Truth is, wherever you go on from here, it’s going to be all up to you. The most important thing is to stay true to who you are and what, in your heart, you stand for. Time is so precious.

So, do your thing. Do it everyday. Don’t be discouraged by the nay-sayers and the doubters.

Be honest. Do the work. Wherever you advance to from here, know that you have all you need to maximize your potential, power up your life and be the best version of yourself that you can be. The rest is just details.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected. 

I look forward to seeing you back here soon.  As always, thank you for reading me.


HEADS UP: In keeping with the changing times, I have embarked on the next phase of my journey, principally working 1:1 with a select group of entrepreneurs and doers, each of whom are seeking their own path and new ways of understanding these changing times; helping them to dig deeper and take their dreams to greater heights.
