Make Leading Your Calendar the RULE!
Do you ask yourself, how can I grow my business when I already struggle to have a life outside of my office?
If so, you are in the right place. Leading your calendar is a topic I discuss often. Mostly because it’s a practice my new clients struggle with on a consistent basis. It’s also an area that many people have a tendency to let slide here and there and the next thing you know, leading their calendar is an exception, not the rule.
Ever notice when you stop leading your calendar everyone else’s needs, demands, requests somehow take precedence and you’re back to squeezing your responsibilities and desires in around everything else.?
You end up putting fires out instead of working on the important things you need to accomplish to move the needle forward in your business. I love the saying, “do what you can to avoid allowing what’s most urgent to continually take precedence over what’s most important.” When you do, you are no longer leading the business towards your goals, you’re usually caught in your own tornado simply working to survive.
This is one of the big reasons I chose to leave corporate consulting. I didn’t want to have to squeeze my life, my fun, my family, my dreams around everything else. I wanted a career, no, I wanted a business that supported the life I wanted….and I’m guessing you do to!
Are you shaking your head? There is a simple shift you can do to take back your calendar.
Start with Three.
Each night, get clear on what your top three intentions are for the next day. This isn’t about your to do list of 100 items, this is about who you want to BE throughout the day, and what you want to celebrate having achieved and/or accomplished by the end of the day. Again, not your to do list, this is about your beingness and the key actions for you to take during the day that will move you and your business closer to achieving your desired goals.
Somehow people have come to believe that in order to be a successful business owner you have to be overwhelmed, overworked, exhausted and burnt out. This simply isn’t true. I know this and each and every one of the business owners I work with come to experience this as a myth as well.
