Here we are at the end of April, the weather is still a little chilly, but the Spring plants, trees and flowers are starting to bud and poke through the thawing ground. I like this time of year. I like to see the plants that have spent the last few months in a frozen state, come to life. I always wonder how they can survive in the frozen ground all winter. I took a look at my plantings in my newest flower bed, and some were blooming and I did not even know it. I planted that spot for year-round blooming and I had forgotten that the early plants would be blooming already. I thought it was too cold, but I was wrong, there they were blooming as if they knew it was time to do so.
The awaking of the Spring reminds me that like all living things, business, has to sometimes go through a frozen state. It does, however, come back to life if you work really hard. You have to embrace the hard times and work even harder to keep that business living. You have to embrace new technology and new ways to do business. You have to be flexible enough to change your strategy if business conditions command it. If you don't it will die. It will not survive. If you own your own business or even if you work for someone else, the collective efforts of human resources have to keep working together and making the business run. Sometimes you feel like you are totally out of energy and can't keep moving, but you CAN, and you WILL. Sometimes you feel like everything is going wrong, but you CAN and you WILL turn it around.
As long as you believe in what you are doing, you CAN and you WILL be successful. I promise, Spring is just around the corner.
