Back to school can bring a mix of emotions. Were you that kid who dreaded the end of summer, the loss of fun and freedom, getting up at the same time (early!) every morning? Maybe you were the kid who couldn’t wait to start the new year, the new teachers, new grade, and a familiar routine?
How can you incorporate a mix of both mindsets into your “new year” as a business leader and perhaps a parent of school-age children?
The beginning of a new school year can be a great time to recommit to your business goals – renew your vision and check your progress. It’s time to be open to new ideas, new business connections and friends, and build upon what you’ve been learning. The beginning of the school year can also be an opportunity to look at how you can add more fun and freedom to your business, and liven things up a little bit so you don’t have to dread the end of summer. Maybe you can even buy some new pens and notebooks! Success is all in the mindset that we choose every day.
