Another Valentine’s Day come and gone. Did you receive flowers from your business? How about a box of chocolate? Maybe a nice card? Me neither. (Sigh.)
Sometimes loving your business can feel one-sided
The good news is, it doesn’t have to be that way. A few tweaks, mixed with a dose of productive habits, and you’ll be doing the Tango with your business in no time!
Here are three easy steps to reignite the passion
1. Set your non-working time zones :: These are the time periods when you will absolutely NOT do any work. For me, I don’t work before 9:00 am or between 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm on weekdays. Weekends are typically off limits.
2. Make friends with your tech tools :: Your tech tools can automate the routine (and mundane) tasks, like booking client appointments, scheduling social media posts and signing up subscribers to your mailing list.
3. Delegate the tasks that drain you :: These To Dos live outside your zone of brilliance and can/should be handed off. Focus your time, attention and energy on serving your clients and revenue-generating activities.
You can escape the grind
The key to having a business that loves you back, comes down to one word: freedom. Breaking free from the mundane (I call this the grind) gives you the space and clarity to focus on those things you are passionate about doing.
The best part is you won’t have to wait for Valentine’s Day to feel the love from your business. It will give back to you, every day of the year!
