Not long ago, I felt that people were already switching off to the negativity. There is only so much doom & gloom that people can stand. The reality is we are not approaching the end of the world as we know it, but more morphing into a new world. This new world will allow companies, owners and employees to develop new skills, strategies, careers and markets.
Without clear goals and a plan, human nature usually dictates that you will eventually become fatigued with the day to day challenge of running a business. Some business partners I worked with recently had successfully run their business for nearly eight years. As the fatigue started to set in, they wondered what the point was or what was in store for them and the business.
