As an entrepreneur, your brain is swimming with new ideas and directions for your business. Your excitement is contagious and your energy is intoxicating, however often you find the end of the day comes before the end of your “to do” list.
The challenge? Focus.
Rather than focusing on one idea and following it through to the end, entrepreneurial women attempt to multi-task their way to the goal line of all of their ideas at once. The result? Frustration.
It is time to break the mold of past behavior and try something new. Ask yourself:
- Are all of the projects of equal importance?
- Do each of the business ideas feed your energy or are some more arduous than others?
- Are the people assisting you with your vision working for the ultimate goal or are they resistant?
Before you leap into your next endeavor –it is time to do some personal housecleaning to get the momentum to leap.
This is especially important when you are looking to launch a new business or grow an existing one.
One of the exercises that I have included in The Working Woman’s GPS, is often a life changer for many women. Please take a few minutes to download the People & Energy Workbook which is the first of five inventories.
As you create and organize your responses, be honest with yourself. The information you capture is often exactly the information that is preventing you from getting where you want to go.
Consider this self-inventory as important as one of your most significant projects for your business. In fact, this inventory is most essential because it likely impacts every other aspect of your business.
Write down your answers so you can study them and use them as a tool to ignite your circle of influences and catapult your journey.
Good luck and keep us all posted on your success.
