If you are too busy, sit!

StarbucksCoffeeCupMost small business owners are too busy, period. But most aren’t doing the right things or working with the right customers. They are actually working against themselves.

One of the main things you, as a business owner, need to do is to know why you are even even in business. You need to take the time to reflect on your goals, dreams and desires. Hopefully your reason for being in business is more than “that’s what I’ve always done”.
If you don’t figure it out now you’ll probably be “still too busy”, years from now.

As a small business owner you have a opportunity to create a great future for yourself, your family and maybe even future generations.

Here are your first steps, you might even have fun;legal_pad
1. Get a fresh legal pad and a good pen.
2. Go to a coffee shop, I prefer Starbucks. Buy yourself a coffee or whatever else YOU LIKE.
3. Sit, chill, relax. Breathe!
4. & 5. Think & Write. Take your time, there is no rush. Let the thoughts come. Don’t worry about getting it right, just write.

Ask yourself questions like:
-Why are you even in business?
-Where would you like your business to be in a year? Or 5?
-What are the biggest things getting in the way?
-If I could (fill in the blank) , I would _______ ??? .
-One thing I’d like to do  just for me is…?

The reason most people don’t think is that thinking is hard work. Don’t be like most people.

Hopefully this was fun for you. And you’ll make it a regular part of your life.
