SCHEDULING LIFE BY THE SEASONS

by Paula on March 4, 2011

Today has been a great day. The sun has been streaming through my window, the sky is blue, and it’s no co-incidence that I feel motivated and positive and have got lots done.

Not everyone is affected by the seasons, or the amount of daylight, or the weather but like me, I know that lots of people are. Grey days, early dark nights, and incessant rain can make things seem harder, lessen enthusiasm and send us scuttling for the indoors and the comfort of home. On the other hand, long and light evenings make us feel positive, radiant, adventurous and happy.

How does this relate to business at all…..?

Well, it’s recognition of this that can help you immensely in business success. If you are thinking of taking the plunge and setting up in business then making that leap, taking that chance and going for it, needs to be timed with Spring! You have the long summer ahead of you where you’ll be feeling more confident and strong, to get things set up and ready to rock ‘n’ roll. By winter you’ll be in control, have things in place and be ready to face those darker days.

By contrast, takingĀ  the plunge into something new and outside of your comfort zone in Autumn could spell disaster. It is at times like this that we need comfort and familiarity and is not the ideal time to be making big decisions.

So what do you think? Can you relate to this and if so do you have any examples of when decisions taken in Spring or Autumn have lead to different outcomes? Or has recognition that you are like this too, lead you to realise that now is as good as time as any in the year to be making that brave step you’ve been mulling over all winter?!

Go for it and GOOD LUCK!
