Have you ever wished that you could completely start over, from scratch? I get that itch all the time as I work through the challenges of working in a small business environment. It doesn’t help that I’ve got the entrepreneur bug, and badly!
But this doesn’t just apply to business – this applies to nearly everything in life that I do, even in the worst of times I think that being completely single and without children would be an incredible relief.
Naturally, I don’t ever want to lose or leave my family but haven’t there been times (especially as a parent of young children) where you’re completely wiped? Ah, such is life.
Thankfully, there are a few things that you can completely start over, some of which are easy and can be done today and others that require a lot more thought and preparation. The challenge, of course, is that the things we’d like to start with a “clean slate” are generally more difficult, right?
If you could start over fresh with one (or two?) things, what would it be? What would you differently? How would you react to that one situation, that one relationship, that one opportunity? What would you do and how would that change things today?
This isn’t about regret or guilt or shame (although you may feel some of those things); this is just an opportunity for you to actively take a look back and review what you’ve done and see if where you had intended to head is actually where you ended up.
These types of reviews are good for your health and your future.
