Yesterday I asked you how organized your business was. Did you consider your answer? Today I'll share a thought on how you can move yourself to a business more organized. Schedule the Strategic.
Schedule the Strategic
Business owners often feel like they are fire fighters rather than business owners. While there is usually an adrenalin rush in solving the urgent issues, it is not a very effective way to run your business. Make sure that you have time scheduled in your week for strategic activities such as client relationship management, product development, future planning or marketing. Treat that time as a client commitment and do not allow other things to get scheduled on top of it. By taking the time weekly to plan, you will have fewer fires to put out and a well-oiled business.
Are you working in your business or on it? If you are more “in” than “on” you are likely saying there are a lot of things that you want to do. Is your business growing as fast as you would like it to be? Could it be because of where you are spending your time?
