As we usher in 2019, many people find this a great time for resolving to make changes in their lives—typically to be healthier, kinder, more appreciative or generally happier. It’s exciting to take on new challenges and give yourself a fresh start. But as farm leaders, we cannot get caught up in the New Year’s resolution frenzy and jump into making changes on the farm.
In his latest blog post on FarmFutures.com, Water Street Solutions CEO Darren Frye reminds us that while change is not necessarily a bad thing, it is inadvisable to rush into change without putting in the hours beforehand to determine exactly what changes should be made—if any at all. Frye suggests ideas for evaluating your operation from another viewpoint before rushing headlong into changes that might not even be necessary.
