If you don’t like where you are, keep moving.

The only way to change the scenery around you is to move.

You could go back, but usually it’s only possible to stay still and stuck, or move forward or sideways.

So, take the next step, whatever it is, no matter how small it is.

The scenery will change and suggest the next step, whatever it is, no matter how small it is.

If moving seems uncomfortable, what will staying still feel like in 6 months, in a year, in 5 years?

In the future, will you look back and regret taking the step, or regret never taking the step?


My best wishes, Paul

Paul Matthews

CEO and Founder of People Alchemy
