Enlightenment of Change

Nov 14, 2022

I am fascinated with the number of people who seem to work from a reaction versus a proactive perspective when it comes to business.  I also see how some leaders are feeling stuck with all the shifts over the past 2 plus years. My personal style is to move fast, move forward, and approach my business from that proactive vantage point.  My challenge is sometimes I move too fast! 

Don’t get me wrong, I understand slowing down to be in the present and reacting to the situation as it unfolds is important too. So how do we find the balance of moving forward with what is the reality of business today versus reacting to the situations as they unfold? Can we become better leaders by making this slight shift in perspective and approach?  It’s all a balancing act, isn’t it?


Connie's motivational quote for today is by – Amit Ray, “Your mind is a flexible mirror, adjust it, to see a better world.”
