The 2023 first quarter ends today at COB.
Why should this matter to you?
We all, everyone of us, need something to measure ourselves by.
We are able to measure how everything is going compared to previous similar periods of time. We should be looking at what we planned to do compared to what we actually did and take notice.
Did we perform better than we expected?
Why? Where did we do better? What did we do for this result?
Similarly if we did not do as well as we expected?
Why? Where did we fall short? What might we have done differently?
These are all important things to review and take notice of. Which are why the end of the 2023 first quarter matters.
Most importantly, what do we need to change?
If things are going well for us… where are we able to make improvements?
If things are not going well… what changes must be made to achieve better results?
In either case, staying the same and not changing, is unacceptable.
The world around all of us is changing every day.
For me, you or anyone with a business to run and a life to live to stand still while everything around us is changing makes no sense.

** The ability to hire such highly educated and experienced people continues to be a fortunate and unfortunate occurrence. It’s unfortunate that so many people will continue to be laid off and released from their jobs.

How does it impact your employees and their families?
