Coaching for Small Business: Changing Seasons
While driving home from work one day I came across a beautiful sight. I usually took a series of back roads that lead me through the winding hills of the rural countryside near our home. This day was no different, as I came over a familiar hill that let me know I was almost home. As I viewed the landscape my eyes were drawn to a single tree that was in full autumn colors of bold reds and oranges. It was fantastic! I passed it in seconds; however that image became burned into my mind. As I continued my trek home I was keenly aware that no other trees were in full season such as the one I just saw. Seeing that one tree already displaying its fall colors got me to think about the upcoming seasonal change. So I began to make a mental list of all the things that would need to be done to prepare for the coming cold weather. This type of trigger happens in your personal life and also in your small business.
