We live in fortunate phoenix-like times!
One reason why we are very fortunate to live in these times is that we can re-start try-again with our enterprises a practically infinite amount of times, it’s like an ideal time to phoenix-ourselves.
IN THE PAST:
if you stood out from a crowd, if you dared too much, you were likely not just to be left out cold, fail, be made a fool of and forever have to go back to your dark hole of conformity.
You were also highly unlikely to be given a second chance by your bank, by your clients, by your peers.
You can try and try again, stand out, dare, even fail a few times, learn each time but start again with new insights and vigour until you really get it right.
Just like we used to have ONE career and the first choice in your life decided the rest of your life, now you can (and should) try out many careers, often in parallel and not sequentially.
In the same way, today, in these phoenix-like times, the time is ideal to restart and reshape and rebirth your ideas and company until you really get it right.
But even then, don’t just stop and keep re-phoenixing yourself, every time better, learning each and every time, refining and improving.
