There is an old Chinese proverb that says, “The best time to plant is tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
The same truth applies to anything that takes time to grow. What would you like your firm to look like 5 years from now? 10 years from now?
What would you like your life to look like in 5 years?
These are not merely philosophical exercises. The choices we make today are the seeds that define what our tomorrow will look like.
In case you hadn’t noticed, the world is changing at a velocity and of a magnitude never before experienced. Dare we say, unprecedented?
What would you do if ten percent of your clients disappeared? Or if the ever-encroaching automation of work reduced your core services to undifferentiated commodities?
We are not peddlers of fear. We have a message of hope. Do something!
What would your clients do if 10 percent of their business disappeared? Help them figure it out.
How should your clients be taking advantage of the ever-encroaching automation wave? Help them figure it out.
Listen to podcasts. Read blogs. Take an online course. We would love for you to join Growth CPR, but we would be just as happy (almost…) if you took a single step today towards what you want your life and firm to look like in 5 years. Just one step.
And then another one tomorrow.
Do not look back on today and think “I wish”. Look back and say “I did”.
The best time to grow an advisory practice was yesterday. The second best time is now. Start growing.
