How can you be sure that it’s time to let a client go, time to change your business model, time to find training or sit for a certification, or time for…well, anything, really? When do you really know that you’re ready?

Even when there’s a problem that seems irresolvable and you feel pushed to do something different, how do you ever know you’ve worked at things hard enough, or looked for enough solutions, or even completely addressed things (if another person’s involved). And when there’s not a problem, but maybe you feel you’re growing in a different direction and there are choices to be made, it can be harder, still, to make a decision.

I can tell you that if you think the time might be appropriate, there’s likely no more appropriate time. Pay attention to the inklings you get (you always get them!), and don’t be afraid to act on them. The more you act on them, the more you’ll notice that things work out for the best, always. Things only tend to turn sideways when you ignore your inklings and stay stuck where you were to begin with.

Trust yourself and the messages you get that are meant to guide you.
