“Vision without action is merely a dream.” – Joel Barker.
Let’s take action:
- Strategically set aside time to work on your business – think of weekends or evenings after work where you can work on your business. If you make your business a priority, you’ll find a way to make time for it.
- Say no to anything that is absolutely not necessary. Focus over an extensive period of time is truly powerful and rather blissful. Embrace this and you’ll be surprised with how much you can get done when you’re 100% focused on the task in hand.
- Utilise small pockets of free time. With each day, take advantage of any moments of free time to work on your business. For instance, whilst waiting for your laundry to finish or your turn at the barbers, get some work done via your smartphone. Another effective approach is working through your commuting journeys via plane, train or bus. These small pockets of deliberate work all add up.
- Maximise productivity. If you’re a morning person who gets more work done in the morning, ensure you go to bed earlier to allow your body to shift into this change of schedule for your business.
- Acknowledge the fact that you need time for your business ideas to develop, time to work on them and your persistent effort to eventually make your business ideas become fruitful endeavours – this within itself can take you years! Be patient. It’s perfectly okay for your business to develop slowly. After all, great things take time to build.
