Along with others in the blogosphere and MSM, I’ve posted a couple of times about strategies for surviving the recession.

The truth?

The recession changes nothing.

What you should do now is no different from what you should do when times are great and the markets are hot.

Look at your organization and your role.

Do you:

  • Add value?
  • Deliver on time?
  • Look for problems – and then solve them – or offer potential solutions?
  • Surprise your boss by doing the unexpected? (In a positive way!)
  • Have a positive attitude?
  • Help your boss – & your organization – succeed?

Look at your personal finances.

Do you:

  • Spend less than you make?
  • Invest in a manner that’s appropriate for your age and investment/retirement goals?
  • Develop skills so you can earn more?
  • Build alternate income streams?
  • Live frugally? Spend wisely? Distinguish between what you want and what you truly need?
  • Manage your money effectively?  Get rid of debt? Max out your retirement account/401(k) contributions?  Have an emergency fund?

The recession changes nothing.
