IT’S OK TO START AFRESH…
I recently did something very bold… I cut my hair and I don’t
mean the cute little cut like the popular Ms Baker, I mean the really
low, untexturised, school boy haircut. I looked at myself in the mirror
and my first reaction was “Jesus Christ, what did I just do?” Before I
finally settled on the actual reality.
My hair, the hair I had nurtured, pampered, invested so much in was
gone!!!!! I was back to square one.
The actual truth is that in the state my hair was, there was no future.
I was just bathing, trimming and giving a pedicure to a dead horse. It
was a hard reality to face but was the best decision to take.
Bringing this back to us, there are things that we might have committed

are failing miserably at (in spite of all attempts to make it work), it
might be time to cut the umbilical cord and start afresh. Lots of times,
we stick with that flailing, dying, frustrating, destructive

- What if it doesn’t work?
- Can I ever get another opportunity?
- Would I be able to find another partner?
- Am I going fail again?

questions you stick to the same thing. IT’S OK TO START AFRESH!!!
Friend… Fresh starts are GOOD. Starting afresh gives you an
opportunity to do better because
- You now know some pitfalls
- ‘fixing some bugs’ becomes easy.
- Managing people becomes easier.
- See it as a better opportunity to select better
partners/investors/target market etc
Sometimes biting the bullet and taking that tough decision to start.
