We’re not here to admonish you for putting something off; it happens to the best of us and with crazy schedules, some “to-do” items get hustled to the side. However, how many times have you said, “I’ll do it later”, yet you never did? The next time you’re tempted to utter these words, pause just one moment and think if postponing that is just an excuse for not taking care of it now, while it’s top of mind. Think of one thing you should do for your business, but haven’t. Would it help if you put it in action today?
Your challenge: if it will help your business, commit to inking it and following through, both on your calendar and in your mind. The trouble with postponing beneficial things is they may never get done, and thus, your business never gets to enjoy the rewards. The other problem is when you really decide you MUST do it, there are usually a bunch of other things screaming for your attention at the same time. By putting it in writing that you are going to do it, you’re one big step from having completed it. You’ll be surprised how easy it will be to just finish it up, then get to that other thing you’ve been postponing. Running your business is really a series of little things, all put together to form the whole. With each piece taken care of, the entirety performs better.
