Get More Time for Yourself!

Encourager-In-Chief: June 29th, 2016

Make appointments with yourself...and keep them!

Frequently, the business owners I coach have ongoing problems with time management. As a business owner myself, I certainly understand their plight. There are simply far more demands on a business owner’s time than there are hours in the day to get them done.

However, I have found a method for keeping them (and you) on track to make sure your most important tasks get done in a timely manner. I’m challenging you to make appointments with yourself and keep them.

Think about it: If you made an appointment to see your most important customer, would you keep it? Of course you would! You would probably move Heaven and Earth to make sure you are there. Then why would you not keep an appointment with yourself?

You and I both know the answer to this question. It’s because there’s nothing to hold you accountable if you break it and you view the consequences of breaking it as insignificant.

This is a huge mistake! If you’re going to give your word, keep your word. It doesn’t matter if you give it to your biggest customer, your spouse, your children, or yourself. If you are wondering why you’re struggling in business, it’s because you’re not honoring your commitments.

Schedule time when you can work uninterruptedly on the most important aspects of your business. These activities should most frequently include selling, filling customer orders, training your people, and improving your systems.

If you still struggle with this, I encourage you to get a business coach who is responsible for holding you accountable to achieving your dreams.

To thine own self be true.
- William Shakespeare
