I remember years ago hearing an early childhood educator explaining that in children's art, whatever is important to them is usually larger than life, and out of proportion because that was their focus. At that time, when I looked at my young daughter's sculpture of herself, sure enough, the earrings were massive (she desperately wanted to get her ears pierced). If you relate this concept to your business, I wonder if we tend to focus most on what is important to us rather than what is of crucial interest to our clients or customers?

When your strategies aren’t working, the goal must be to figure out something new. This may be the time to reinvent yourself for the upcoming year. When you reinvent, you have reached a point when repositioning and re-strategizing haven’t worked and it’s time to create a new version of yourself. This is the point when the artist throws out the original canvas and starts again on a new canvas.
