Wow! I can’t believe that we are already to the end of January! This year is already flying by. Alice and I have so many ideas and so little time to implement them. What it all really comes down to is time management. I’m sure you’ve all heard how important it is, yadda yadda yadda! Well guess what? It is not just important it is crucial! I recently heard a quote – “Everybody ends up somewhere, but not everybody ends up somewhere on purpose.” That means if you don’t decide where you are going in your business and how you are going to get there then you will just float aimlessly along without any control. Leaving your destiny up to chance. How do you prevent that? Decided what you need to be doing, when you need to be doing it, and how you will get it done. Each day you MUST decide what is important to get done that day. Leave time for those ‘fires’ that arise because we all hav e them. Unplanned emergencies that must be handled, but if you leave time for them they are not so disruptive. Another good quote I remind myself of often is “situations don’t cause stress, how you react to the situations causes stress”. Don’t get stressed out about things. It will only rob you of more precious time. Keep a list of your things that you need to do, continue to update it constantly, and don’t beat yourself up if you get off track. Just re-plan your route and get back to work. Remember, if you don’t decide what you will be doing, somebody else will decide it for you.
