Do you ever wake up some mornings feeling super motivated, like you can just go to work and crush your to do list?
What about days when you feel so overwhelmed that you get nothing done and find you’ve spent all day time wasting on social media or doing nothing of value?
You might not know it but both these are states of anxiety, stress or overwhelm and they come from an emotional reactive mindset. The issue is you could be running and managing your business from either of these emotions on any given day and not realise the negative affects its having on you and your business success.
When we manage ourselves and business from an emotional state we could actually be seriously under performing, reducing our chances of success and on the rocky road to mental, emotional and physical burn out.
Take for example if you’re business is lacking in converted sales numbers and you don’t hit your target this month…You could get very reactive and start marketing like a mad man without really planning it all out before hand. Trying to sell your services/products without really considering the long term game.
You’ll have become reactive to an emotional state of mind.
You don’t plan your marketing, your sales, your strategy out…You just react to the moment and the thought ‘I need more sales’. And although you may very well need MORE sales, However it’s your needy approach that will kill your businesses ability to really succeed.
The key is to work daily form a place of measurable production.
The phrase “what gets measured gets done”is a phrase to live by for us self employed business owners.
The only way we can build a successful, scalable, productive and profitable business…Long term is to create production boundaries that enable us to measure our working output.
This way there’s no more working from emotions and reaction, there’s NO working for a place of feeling because this has NO PLACE in the managing of you.
Did you know that the writer Stephen King sits down everyday and writes 2000 words REGARDLESS of his mood, energy or feeling?
He doesn’t write 5000 and he doesn’t write 500, he writes 2000 and if this takes him 2 hours or 4 hours that’s what he does. He sets measurable boundaries for himself…And the results speak for themselves.
So what do you measure in your business?
How do you measure your days productivity?
What action steps do you create DAILY that move your business forward?
This is just one of the things I coach my clients to do in their business and it creates relentless clarity and productivity.
I find that most business owners don’t NEED more information, they are already overload with it. What they need are new habits, structure and organisation that improves their working function, performance and mindset.
Then on top that need require accountability to doing what they said they would do to grow their business. Sometimes all you need is someone else in your corner supporting you and being a sounding board for ideas. Sometimes you need a friendly kick up the ass…And sometime you need somewhere in the middle of both.
I’m opening slots up for my Performance Coaching Program.
Go from Good to Great to Unstoppable in your life and business.
I’m taking on ONLY 5 business owners/self employed operators who are serious about taking 2019 by the b*lls and creating the business and life they want. I will personally support, coach and keep you accountable on a one-one basis.
Here’s the thing, Most coaches have a one size fits all program, then they bluff or tweak this around each client…I don’t. My coaching is completely individual to YOU because it’s your life, your goals, your personality. It’s my job to help you achieve your dreams in life and coach you as you are.
