Common conversation nowadays with baby boomers is the fact that we possess vast quantities of experience and knowledge. However, after 15 or 20 years in the same routine it's time for a change. But where? How? Trapped like a deer in headlights we find ourselves not paralyzed, but stymied. We know we have great wealth to share but making an attempt to first organize, select and identify who we are and what our brand is, is like scrambling out from fallen boulders. Best thing to do is just lay there with all this information and experience piled on top of you. Oh, and breath! Take many breathes.
First step in re-booting is assessment; what we have done, how we did it and what are the milestones in our careers. Think about what you love doing and never had enough time to do it and where it can become a vital service to others or other businesses. Identify yourself and your vision. Jot it down, take notes and edit it. Second step is to select your top material. Whether it was commercially successful or you personally felt it was a triumph, give it the credit it deserves. With years of dossiers, photographs, marketing plans or sketches there are always those triumphs which hold 1st. and 2nd. places and our favoritism to them will probably never change. Third step is to develop an internal structure of comrades to support you in your vision and help you in moving the boulder cross the finish line. People who believe in you and you in them. Life is a give and take relationship. And remember......it's never done alone. Lastly, don't forget to KISS IT....keep it simple stupid!
Good Luck and Happy Rebooting.
