Every day there are changing circumstances. Today we are aware of more changes relating to the Covid-19 lockdown.

Wherever in the world we are, there is something new about the Covid-19 situation, or something else.

What do you see when you look at changed circumstances?

Some see problems and issues while others see challenges and still others see opportunity.

The interesting thing about changing circumstances is that they all carry opportunity. Sometimes the opportunity is for you and sometimes it is for someone else. The skill is in knowing you and your business so well that you can tell the difference.

Recognising whether circumstances are carrying an opportunity for you or for someone else is the difference between taking action and advantage from the situation or understanding there is no need for you to do anything. Not recognising this can lead to procrastination, poor decision making and stagnation.

Remember that circumstances only appear as challenges if we doubt our ability to overcome them. And what is, is. What is, really doesn’t matter. What matters is how we react to what is.

Knowing what you are about and seeing the circumstances around you from that perspective allows you to move toward your goals with a minimum of fuss.
