01 Sep Accelerate Your Entrepreneurship : Letter From The Publisher
BY: Dr.Lisa Wicker
It’s that time of year when change is in the air and the weather shifts to crisp air and the cool days of fall. Alone with it comes the beautiful vivid change of tree leaves to shades of orange, red, yellow, and brown.
Michael Meliniotis, a coach at Mile High Run Club says, “Every fall, runners can very well experience a welcome boost in performance.” Why? “In the fall, we begin to see legitimate drops in temperatures and humidity. Coming off a hot summer, this means we can run at the same effort level and heart rate, yet see immediate increases in speed.” So, although it feels like you’re putting the same effort as always into your run, your pace naturally picks up.”
I love this concept because fall is a season of change for me just as it is for nature. It represents new beginnings. In my business as an entrepreneur, it’s a time for me to assess business productivity outcomes and make necessary changes to ensure a strong finish by year end. Given that I take life a bit easy in the summer months, my natural progression of change in the fall is a mindset shift to acceleration. I pick up the pace.
