When I found out that I lost my pregnancy, I wanted to have a baby immediately because I couldn't imagine not having a baby after expecting one. I felt that having another baby would help me to move on quickly.
Then I went from wanting a baby immediately to feeling really scared of getting pregnant again because a small voice as always saying, “What if I lost it again.” My stillbirth was unexplained so I started 'waiting' for the 'perfect time' to try again which frankly, never came. Eventually I just went for it and tried after about a couple of years.
As a 60 Minute Coach I hear often these cries from my clients:
- Oh, I am failing to keep up with my schedule

A quarterly business plan will allow you to efficiently identify significant periods in your business where you may need to implement a new strategy. Periods such as; peak holidays and higher and lower volume profit months. Having a quarterly business plan may even allow you to determine when is the best time for your business to launch a new product or service.
Change can be like the childhood monster in the closet you never wanted to confront so you allow your imagination to take over and scare you ridiculously! Change can be like dew on the front lawn after a spring rain with the sun glistening just right so all you can do is breath in and let out a grateful sigh. Change is about perspective.
