Allow yourself 10-15 minutes each morning to ‘power up’. It can involve whatever you like, so long as it’s energising either mentally or physically (or both!).
You’re a solution finder, a problem solver, a winner! You’ve done it before and you can do it again. Each day take a minute to remember just how much of a warrior you are – finding this strength will prepare you for whatever set backs the day might throw at you.
It’s important to realise that no business goes without its fair share of rocky patches. But the most successful ones are those who power on regardless. Brush yourself off and get right back on that horse.
You will be more productive and much happier if you make improvements to your time management skills. Write down the top 3 things you MUST accomplish today and get the job done before focussing on the less important things (like checking your Facebook…).
You might think that you can do a better job and that may well be true. But you are only one person. Delegating means that you can get far more done in a day than if you were just working alone. So hand off some of that to-do list to someone else and concentrate on the really important things that you need to get done yourself.
Procrastination can mask a lack of confidence, or a fear of being wrong or being criticised. But the longer you wait to do something, the further away that light at the end of the tunnel gets. Bite the bullet and so whatever it is that you’ve been putting off. No matter the result, at least it won’t be hanging over you or churning scared, negative thoughts through your head. When it’s done it’s done and you can move forward.
You won’t succeed alone. Every day, there are many people on your team and in your daily life who deserve to be thanked. So be thankful, show it and say it. And smile! Research shows that smiling positively benefits you and those around you – and it looks beautiful darling!
