Now let’s dive into this week’s show.
We can often set unrealistic expectations for ourselves when it comes to our goals.
Or we set goals at the beginning of the year without having a full picture of what is going to happen in our business between now and then. Some things are within our control, others are not.
This leads me to my first recommendation and that is to reevaluate your goals and timelines mid-year and take into consideration slumps in your business, busy times in your life, and the unexpected that you need to detour around.
Second, we can get really good at looking at the lack of progress we think we have made in our business because we have big goals and dreams.
This can be detrimental when it comes to measuring how far we’ve come.
Instead, why not celebrate what we have done thus far? Give ourselves a high-five for the progress we’ve made and cut ourselves some slack because we aren’t “there” yet. Wherever there is.
Grant yourself some grace, and some flexibility, and remember what is meant for you will not pass you by. Your success is inevitable.
Last but not least, you got into this entrepreneur gig because you wanted freedom, right?
How’s that going? Do you feel free? Do you have control of your own time?
If your answer is anything besides a resounding YES then you my friend need to take some time away and reset, regroup and recharge.
Whatever that looks like for you.
Tune into the entire episode here for all the details, and stories and to dive further into these three sure-fire ways to end procrastination in your business.
In the meantime, take care, stay safe and be well.
