This is the first month of the year. Almost everyone is finding a reason to start new things for their mind, body, and spirit. This is great! However, let me encourage you on your way. Make sure your new goals are not necessarily comfortable, but make sure they fit. Do they fit your purpose? Do they fit your time? and does it really fit your health goals. As business people. we should consider these things.
For instance, we realize that entrepreneurs and non-profit leaders spend 60% longer than the average worker. This means we must be more concerned about our health, and less concerned about the amount of projects we do. Since we have limited time to do so. Then we are obligated to think quality not quantity. This may mean that you need to raise your rates so that you can get paid what you are worth. You are no good to anyone if you are dead tired all the time from trying to make ends meet. It takes no rocket science to explain that being tired decreases your cognitive abilities.
I realized this after a season of working at night and having little time to complete my others projects. On a 10 to 12 hour shift, my brain was not as functional by the 9th hour. I ended up creating strategies to keep my energy or alertness up. No matter what I did. I would end up paying for it later. On the other hand, the job ended up delaying my projects, limiting my sleep, and leaving little time to do anything else that was important. We don’t have to experience this if we practice making our lives fit correctly. We should be getting fit. I don’t mean working out, but think about your goals wisely and actually making wise decisions, and acting on them efficiently. How are you getting fit? Let me know in the comment section.
