Balancing Life & Work
We've all heard it said that when we come to the end of our life, there isn't anyone who looks back and wishes that they would have spent more time working more. Instead, they wished they had loved more, lived more fully, and worried less. Here’s to living a balanced life.
Delegation is a two step process. The first step is to actually hand over to someone else something that you would like for them to do. The second, and often the most challenging part, is to let the other person do what you want them to do, in their own way, without micro-managing them.
Goals & Goal Setting
Having goals and setting goals can be a very productive thing for us to do. Though, they should not be what sets our future in stone, or what singularly determines all our business decisions. Rather, goals might better be thought of as place holders for our intentions; a beacon of light for our dreams.
Guaranteeing Your Small Business Success
While no one thing can guarantee your business success, there are many things you can do to make it happen. Here are a few of them.
Leaving The Corporate World
Leaving the corporate world to start something new, whether you are doing so as a new preneur™ an accidental preneur™ or a closet preneur™ is a big hairy deal. Take comfort in the knowing that millions of people have gone before you and are there to guide you while millions more are doing it now and are companions with you on your new adventure.
Money, Riches & Wealth
Having money, riches and wealth are one of the reasons for going into business for yourself. You want control of your time, financial security for the future, and the flexibility and freedom money will provide you in the now. Be inspired by what others have to say about money.
Starting up anything, let alone your very own small business, always has that delicious non se qua mixture of 90% fear and 10% excitement, or is it 10% fear and 90% excitement. That's what makes it so intense.
Time management is about three things: setting priorities, avoiding distractions, and carrying through. If you find yourself constantly efforting things, you will burn out quickly. Instead, manage them.
Transitions occur when it's time for a change. Transitions become stressful when we resist that change and cling to the past. Though, when we let go and open to the possibilities of what may come, we get to experience grace.
