What’s Really Holding You Back?
“As An Entrepreneur, Is Time Your Greatest Enemy?”
In last week’s blog about strategy (The Entrepreneur’s Mindset), we talked about how to move your business forward to prevent it from falling like so many others. Within it I posed you a question:
What’s stopping you?
There’s a very high chance your answer was TIME. If I’m wrong I’ll buy you a pint.
“I haven’t got time to focus on my business!”
“There aren’t enough hours in the day!”
“I’d be able to get on if it wasn’t for all the interruptions!”
Here’s the thing, the only thing that’s stopping you is…YOU
Sorry, but it’s the truth. According to research over 80% of your day is spent thinking and doing habitual thoughts and tasks.
“If you always do what you’ve always done, you always get what you’ve always got.” Henry Ford
The thinking and activities that got you to where you are today will not get you to your next level. You’ve got to break the cycle, change the habitual thinking and behaviours and make the change. Get back to thinking and behaving like an entrepreneur.
If you don’t, as Henry Ford said, you’ll carry on getting the same result.
Your Action This Week…
You are the business owner, you are an entrepreneur, therefore how you think and behave has a powerful influence on what’s around you.
Over the next week be conscious of your habits; start to note what you do each day. What is it you do each day? What tasks are you doing? What repeated conversations do you have each day with your team?
By observing yourself you’ll see patterns and I want you to think about the effect they have on your business.
