Any experienced skydiver will tell you that if you’ve got a malfunctioning main canopy you’ll have to “cut the cord,” releasing that chute to go to your reserve chute. Skydiving is life or death and you’ve got seconds to make your choice.
In our Certified Legal Nurse Consulting businesses we’ll sometimes encounter a “cut the cord” moment. It might be a subcontractor who’s draining our energy and not working out or an attorney-client who wants the Ferrari on a Prius budget (LOL). When that happens, you owe it to yourself, and yes even to the other party, to sever the relationship. It’s usually not entirely one-sided – the other party should also be perceptive enough to know things aren’t working out. The more you prolong it the more difficult it becomes and the more time you invest. Arghh! By making the decision you’re actually doing everybody involved a favor and allowing everyone to move on.
Take a moment today and ask yourself, is there a particular cord that needs to be cut? If so, what are you waiting for? It might not be a life-or-death decision, but everybody’s life will rapidly improve once you finally cut the cord.
Success Is Inside!
