Do you have challenges?

May 2, 2018 // R. Shawn McBride // No Comments »

It’s not always easy.

I am having a lot of fun today.  But the volume of work is high. And the pace of change is quick.

What I’ve found interesting in my growth is that the ability to deal with the pace of change increases.  And now I change so quickly.

Maybe some of you are still in corporate jobs, doing a side hustle or just getting started.

Well let me encourage you to start changing.  Start changing for improvement. If improvement is in reach – change.  Improve as fast as you can even if you have to change lots.

Many of us don’t pursue things because it means change.  I’ve been guilty of this. It held me back for years.

And I don’t blame myself.  The culture of corporate America doesn’t embrace change.  It’s messy for them. And I fell hook line and sinker for it.  I do fault myself for not thinking critically sooner!

Really change is messy for all of us.

But it’s worth it.

The faster you change the faster you’ll get there.

Want to see change in action?  Check out this new video of mine where I changed my filming platform so I can start adding subtitles easier.

I also recorded a ton of videos for my Doing Business in the US course today.

That was a big change – getting used to recording video regularly.  But a needed change.

What are you changing?  What are you afraid to change?

Drop me a note and let me know.

Speaking of change – here’s a change of pace.  Laura Vanderkam gave a TED talk on time management where she admits to having time management challenges.  (Small world – I spoke on the advantages of women in business partnerships the same day at TEDx).

It’s nice to see someone admit their challenges.

This growth is causing me time management challenges too – not afraid to admit that either.

Looking forward to hearing about your challenges.
