Most of us have been there at one time or another; we’ve moved from one home to another. There can be challenges around this such as finding the right home, going through everything you own, figuring out whether to keep it or will it fit in your new home, packing it all up and getting it into your new home.
Despite the challenges, this also can be an exciting time filled with opportunities. You get to find just the right place that fits your wants and needs. Going through your household items allows purging of things you don’t need any more or haven’t used for a long time. Finally there comes the day when you move everything in and put it into its rightful new place just as you want and need it. Ah, satisfaction!
Moving to new software can be a very similar experience and many people will avoid it because of the same challenges that moving to a new home has. Finding the right software that suits your needs and wants and the challenge of moving your data over to it can feel quite daunting.
But this is also an exciting time and provides lots of opportunities. There’s the excitement of something new that suits your business needs and wants more than your current software provides. There’s the opportunity to look at your data and purge any old data that is no longer needed. Or perhaps clean up the data that does exist and will be migrated so that it’s more accurate and more consistent for your fresh start. And of course there’s the satisfaction of having this fun new software that allows you to do more for your business.
Getting past the mindset of the challenges of moving and focusing on the opportunities can be the springboard to take you to the next level in life and business.
