Over the course of our lives, we go through a number of significant transitioning periods. Going to school, primary to secondary, leaving school, going to University / getting a job / doing some study, getting promoted, changing jobs, starting your own business, children, selling your business and retirement; how many of these areas do we really plan for and if we do how many of us leave it to the last minute and hope we can get things in place?
Transitioning means change and uncertainty – something that most can find challenging even though it is inevitable. But it also means an opportunity to have new beginnings, new experiences, meet new people, take on more flexibility to include those things you hadn’t had time to experience previously.
So why do most of us leave our planning until the last moment? We either don’t want to believe that our current situation will end or we get wrapped up in the now and take both eyes off what’s next.
Getting a jump on what’s next will set yourself up to have a more successful and enjoyable journey. Whether it’s into a new role, putting on your future leaders and training them so you can work “on the business”, or planning for retirement, starting now will get you ready for what’s next.
