Why have I had a stone replica of this turtle on my desk for the last 30 years?
It’s all about your appetite for risk & willingness to have a growth mindset.
In order to move forward a turtle must stick its head out.
Victorian business owners have to decide on difficult choices in this lock down and some are about future survival.
Some owners are in a state of anxiety and not in a good mental place and unable to see a way forward. Others see it as a time to look outside their immediate situation and develop a new way forward .
In my own situation working in isolation I go through a variety of emotions on a daily basis. Some days I am all about a state of positive psychology and on others, I am having trouble getting my brain into action and being motivated to get moving.
I know that I am not alone. That’s why I work to a structured routine, talking to others every day, informative zoom meetings only, new learning on You Tube, writing, looking to see how I can add value and walk 10 klms a day.
Be a turtle and stick you head out and look for a way to move on
