One of the biggest errors a man can commit against his destiny is to end or start any new season carelessly or lackadaisically. Remember it’s one life and it’s too delicate to be left to chance.
Don’t forget there is no academic, spiritual or philosophical height you attain that guarantees your decision-making process becomes error-free and accurate. You need a periodic forensic review and personal audit.
Failure to embrace wisdom and its proper application always put us in an unending circle of pain and frustrations. The few people who remain constant on the cutting edge of success have one thing in common, they know how to pull over to rethink, refuel, recalibrate and restrategize at the beginning, in the middle and of course, at the end of every season.
2020 is not a new year, it’s the beginning of a decade. It’s the beginning of the third decade of the new millennium where data will eat over 300 businesses for lunch. We saw data in the infant stage from 2000 to 2009. Data crashed the stock market, collapsed banks through capitalization, mergers, and acquisitions.
From 2010 to 2019 data grew to an adolescent. It gave Apple one trillion dollars turn over bringing a company that produces the only solution into Guinness World Records as the first company to do such turnover in the capital market.
Hear this, the data you saw as a spent in the Genesis of 2000 will become a dragon in the Revelation of this coming decade (2020-2029). Algorithm and artificial intelligence are the derivatives of data ready to take out all dinosaurs who refused to reinvent.
Therefore, I highly recommend a personal retreat for you before this year runs out. There are six aspects of your life that need forensic auditing.
1: THANKSGIVING. Count your blessings. Forget not his benefits.
2: SPIRITUAL LIFE. How close are you with your maker in your work and walk with Him? How can you do better next year?
3: MENTAL DEVELOPMENT: what have you known? How much are you on the cutting edge of success on your core essence?
4: YOUR LIFE ASSIGNMENT: Are you running your own race or you are running for others? Who are you?
What problem are you created to solve?
Who and where did God sent you to.
How will you get there?
What are your fears?
What are your motivations?
What do you want to be remembered for when you die?
5: YOUR FINANCIAL LIFE: Have you been faithful with the resources God pushed to you. Print out your bank statements and look back.
6: YOUR RELATIONSHIPS: if you want to travel far in 2020, beware of excess luggage and toxic people.
