Praying for guidance and clear answers has been my number one strategy and here we are in 2013 just now positioning ourselves, I believe, for success. Part of the problem besides being in one of the worst economies of my lifetime has been continuing to do business as usual. If one is not careful you can easily find yourself matching the definition of insanity (doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result). In my case I had good reason to think that would work. Because at one time, those actions did produce results. But business, technology, economies, politics, and even job descriptions DO change and so must our strategies for how to address them.
God started helping in very obvious ways about 17 months ago and in one more week, we will be implementing the final of over a dozen changes to the business. It will still be a little while before all the dust settles and real numbers come in to reveal whether or not this was the right set of moves. But for once in a very long desert-like time period for me....I see some light at the end of the tunnel. I feel a sense of relief and burden lifted. I am enjoying my work again and even find myself looking forward to it. I guess time will tell if the promise land awaits. Either way, I thank God for giving me these experiences and helping me learn from them!
