As an entrepreneur you need to understand that the trends transforming work and life go way beyond you.
You may own your business,but you can't change the economy. Working with a national association today I was reminded how much every industry has changed in the last 18 months.
Work and life have fundamentally changed. Why has managing your work and life become so tough?If you study the data you will see that broad economic, demographic and sociological trends have shifted dramatically over the past ten years. Dramatic change doesn’t mean you don’t have the power to take action. It means that the action may be very different.
Why? Because you realize that the issue is not that there’s something is wrong with you, or that you can’t “hack” it. Understanding the macro context doesn’t mean you don’t have the power to take action and make your fit better, but it does makes it easier to understand why you need to exercise that power.
Tomorrow I will share some recent research that reinforces, it’s not just you!
