What’s your plan for today?
Many small business owners treat each new day, as if they had an endless supply of days, rather than a strict ration. By failing to invest the best they can into each new day, they have days, weeks, months years and decades, where they make a fraction of the progress they could.
We each need to understand that “the clock is ticking.” It’s time, right now, to stop repeating the patterns of business behaviour that have been holding us back or stopping our progress. If we look around us and see elements of our business that we are unhappy with, today, right now, is the time to start putting it right. If we are concerned about our; bank balance, cash flow, sales figures or a slowdown in inquiries that will lead to some lean months ahead, there is nothing to be gained by ignoring it and hoping it will go away.
Tomorrow never comes
Like the old song says; tomorrow is always a day away. Putting things off until tomorrow is one of the key reasons people never take the action required for success. They see a challenge with their business and because they are busy today, they decide to “look at it tomorrow” when they will be less busy. Because they have consciously decided to deal with the problem tomorrow, there is suddenly far less urgency for them to do anything about it today. Those with great intentions who seldom achieve their potential, simply repeat that process. They “live” in a day that never comes.
Shifting our mindset from I will do it tomorrow to I will do it today, is a master skill of achievement. Even if we only have 30 minutes available today to get started on making things better, we should still do it! That 30 minutes of real progress, is of more value to us and our businesses, than a year’s worth of good intentions that were never acted on.
Today, find some time and use it to make things better. Don’t put off until tomorrow, what you can do today.
