I’ve got an important question to ask you about the goal or intention setting you do for your business.
Do you include personal goals at the same time?
I find that many women in business – entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, mumpreneurs, small business owners, creative business owners, anyone who leads a business – focus all of their goal setting solely on the business, completely ignoring a massively important thing that impacts on the business every single day – themselves!
We all know that the many roles we have can be very demanding and we know that they can easily conflict with each other. This can leave you feeling distracted, overwhelmed and wondering how you’re ever going to get everything done. As you try and focus on growing your business, your wealth, your expertise and the other business related aspects of your life it is so important include yourself.
Growing you will have a significant positive impact on your productivity and effectiveness in terms of your business action. Ignoring you in your business can impact on your needs in a negative way and when that happens and your personal needs are not being met you can start to get resentful of your business. More than likely your loved ones will become resentful too, and probably before you do.
When you include yourself in the bigger picture you acknowledge that you have a life outside of your business and that you have an influence on your business. Rather than letting yourself get distracted by all the things you have to do on a personal level, schedule them into your day to create the balance you talk about all the time. Don’t let time spent on personal things make you feel guilty. You can’t ignore yourself – you started your business, you lead it every day. it is a part of your life and like it or now, the two things are intricately entwined. Make that link a positive and rewarding one.
The 4 key ares of growth for effortless success include growing your business, your wealth, your expertise and yourself.
