So… 437 months ago, back in January of 2020, you set a lot of intentional, thoughtful goals for the year.
And then came March, and everything changed.
You’d wake up one day determined to get out there and help people.
Then the next day, all you wanted to do was stay in bed and watch Netflix.
Since then, we’ve had George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Jacob Blake.
Your “surge capacity,” as the New York Times reported a few weeks ago, is completely dried up.
And now it’s September, and you have to figure out who you are and what to do.
Should you post something? What if some people think it’s insensitive?
Should you talk about what’s going on in the world? What if you offend someone?
Should you reach out to a past client, or follow up with a prospect? What if their business isn’t doing well and they can’t hire you?
And slowly, you could overthink yourself right into invisibility.
But there’s another option. You could be the SUPERHERO, with just a mindset shift.
You could stop trying to adjust your message to suit each individual person on your list, and instead, show up as a person who wants to help other people.
You could decide to share information that you believe is useful, and that you know will be heard by the right people.
You could show up for the people who are waiting and deliver exactly what they need from you.
And day by day, you will write yourself into being, as the researcher Jenny Sundén says.
The world will be different in three, six, and twelve months. None of us can predict exactly what it will look like. But here’s one thing I am certain is true: Business will still exist.
Whether your business still exists depends entirely on you and the decisions you make now.
If you decide that it’s inappropriate to show up now, you probably won’t be in business a year from now.
If you decide that what you have to offer can help people, then you can weather this storm.
Ask yourself two questions right now:
Do you still believe in the goals you set back in January?
Which version of you does the world need right now?
