The 80s band Wilson Phillips says if you hold on for one more day, things will go your way. Is that really true? Does stuff go your way without you even trying? Maybe sometimes. But if you’re someone who has put a job change, advanced degree, or business idea on hold until things “get better,” when is that time exactly? There’s always an expert to your left and an expert on your right to define when things will turn around. Maybe the best expert to answer that is YOU.
Now is the time to shift from holding on to moving on. A dicey economy can be a great time for trying new things. Whether it’s a new career, learning different skills, changing your lifestyle, starting a business, or pursuing the direction of your dreams, why wait? No one can change your life except for you … (sorry, couldn’t resist).
What one step will you take this week to shift from holding on to moving on?
(Don’t be mad if that Wilson Phillips song is in your head the rest of the day.)
