You’re seldom alone

Day 53: Friday 24 March

In business, when things aren’t going well or worse, unravelling, it’s unlikely you’re the first.

Those challenges you’re facing. It’s likely someone else is facing or has faced those too.

It’s worthwhile reminding yourself of that. So you don’t feel so alone and hopeless.

It’s advice I needed a couple of weeks ago!

It begs the questions.

Who are the people that might be facing the same challenges?

How did they solve that problem or what are they trying?

Reach out to them. Talk to them. Share notes and insights. You might be able to help each other.

You don’t need to do the same thing but what might you learn from them?

They might not be willing to chat or share, but at least you might try studying what they’re doing.

You might need to do more but that’s a good place to start.
