Juggling family and business

We’re at the end of the first quarter of the year so how are we doing against our goals/plans/hopes? Well, the first thing is that if you hadn’t set goals for yourself and your business, you could be anywhere. I guess if you’re still in business, that’s your goal. But for most of us, we want more than that. We want to thrive, not just survive. We want less chaos and stress, not more strain from financial pressures and work overload. We want thoughtful, calm business decisions from the heart. Not emotional reactions and short-term solutions. And this comes from knowing where you are going and how you are going to get there. Even if you only know sort-of.

So, what barriers stand in your way? My suggestion is to make a list of the barriers you can identify, then turn each of them into goals. For example, I don’t have the time to do consistent marketing. This should become, I create regular time in my weekly timetable to do marketing. Give it a try and see how you go. Anything which gives you insight to the way forward is valuable.
