In the Field of Opportunity...  is it Plowing Time Again?

It’s that time of year again when we are doing our annual reviews and setting plans for the next year and I came across a song this morning that kind of goes along with that.

Sometimes everything is going along fine and all we need to do is nurture our goal, do a little pruning here, a little weeding there and just make sure to keep maximizing what we have already been doing.

Yet other times things are just not working with a client, a project, a business, or a relationship.

And these are times that are the toughest when we must decide if it is time to plow this crop under and start over with a fresh field.

Do you have any fields that may need to be plowed under so that you can free up some time for the opportunity of a more productive crop this next year?

Yes a little pruning, little fertilizer and some water never hurt anyone:)Endre

Yes sir Bob. Neil Young sets us all straight. In with 2017 and out with 2o2016. (even though it was a good year).

Good morning Bob.  The right song for this time of the year.  As I'm writing this I'm listening to it.  I started my plowing last month, the results are already bearing the fruits of my labor

Good morning Bob. Some fields must be ploed under so focus can be on fields yielding the most! Enjoy your day!

Good Morning Bob - yes once you plant it doesn't work by itself.  Fertilizer and nurturing and watering are necessary.

Yes, I have found a few things in my life that aren't working for me any longer, and I'm going to make some changes.

Great analogy Bob!  Farmers even rotate the type of seeds they plant so differnt crops come up - it's good four our soil to change things up a bit :)

 

Happy new year!

 

Sincerely,

Grace

Hi Bob -- I like your analogy.  For me it's not a major re-working of strategy but definitely some refining in my plans.

Hi Bob, it seems to me that we are constantly assessing and reassessing things throughout the year - so we have plenty of times to plow throughout the year - but right now it is a great way to start the new year.
