“How does it get to this point, why I am working, working, working with my head down in my business, and feeling as if I do not have time to think ahead?”
You probably started your business to have freedom of choice, freedom to create and have the freedom to have unlimited income without limitation wages.
You may leave J.O.B. and now you feel like you’re back in the worst boss ever … YOU!
Typically, companies have started by someone who has a special skill. Perhaps you’ve done a great job with the financial corporations is what you want your own financial services company.
Just because you have the skills to do the technical work that does not mean that one can be a successful entrepreneur. Anyone who has gone through this transition will agree. There are so many different skills needed for business!
Until you are willing to delegate tasks that are not your specialty, you will not be able to fully utilize your best talents.
Creating a system that others can work with you can give you that freedom, which was your goal with your own business. This requires discipline and attention to all details that you are currently handling.
Oh, how tempting it is to think you can handle all this! Maybe you feel that you need to get more and more profits before you deserve to have the support you need?
This may seem risky to pay for support when your money and stiff, but without support in place, you tend to stay stuck where you are.
You are also an ideal candidate to overwork and destroy. If you are overloaded and overworked, the passion that you have to start a business shrivel and die.
Ask yourself the question: “How many hours I actually worked in my company every week?”.
If you ever worked for, that many hours in any job you ever?
I do not think so.
The challenge for most business owners is to develop a time to work on the business so they can improve their company’s functions.
Now it’s time to look at this time wasters that steal away some of your valuable time. Is this a message? This is a problem for many of us.
It is easy to get caught checking e-mail, and then get distracted by any number of interesting topics.
Disciplinary yourself to check email only at certain times of day can free up some precious time for your business planning.
Another road to our performance, you can avoid something (eg, business planning), because it is too major of a project. If you can get out of the project down into smaller segments, it will be easier in view of the work in one of the segments in any spare time that you have.
In fact, the creation of appointments in a change would be a way to create this business plan.
And to maintain this designation!
Show yourself and your business as much respect as you show the rest of the world.
If you have problems in disciplining themselves to do some of these changes and creating a business plan, it may be time to think about hiring a business coach.
Business Coach can help you in getting through this transition in a systematic business structure that will allow you to grow profitable and creative freedom, and you wanted in the first place!
