So many things in our lives are difficult to control. When we have our own home-based business, again, there are many things that are difficult to control. Fortunately, there is help.
Time: We can’t control time. We can, however, control our own business hours. Make them, abide by them. Conversely, do not work during times that are not business hours. Your family will appreciate that.
It’s difficult to control runaway time, but when we begin to control our time more, we see how valuable it is. It makes good business sense.
Activities: We Can’t Control What Others Do. We can control only what we do. Do activities every day that will benefit and grow your business. INVITE, INTRODUCE, EXPLAIN, TEACH, COACH. Whatever it is that you do, do it. If you must make phone calls to make appointments, do it; or connect with people on LinkedIn or other business websites, do it; or go to networking meetings, do it. It’s difficult to control what others do, but when we begin focusing on our own actions, things begin to change.
Focus: We Can Only Focus on One Thing at a Time. Multi-tasking can be great and many people pride themselves on their skill at it, but really, when we have to give something our whole self, we must focus on that thing. That’s okay. By focusing on that one thing, we have control over what we are doing NOW.
