Why do we work so hard?
Nobody on their death bed said, “I wish I would have spent more time at the office”.
(Paraphrased from Heading Home by Paul Tsongas, 1941 to 1977)
Why is it you work so hard? Is it because you want to provide a good
income and lifestyle for your family and yourself? Sure it is, but have
you taken the steps needed to attain the income goals you deserve? If
you have, or even if you haven’t, are you able to take the time to
enjoy the benefits of your hard work?
If you are like many business owners, your employees probably have more
time off than you do! In order to keep your employees happy, one of the
many things you need to plan for is to make sure they have time off for
vacations, personal needs, etc. But have you made the same plans to
keep yourself happy? Probably not!
Whose fault is this? You’re right; it is that person looking back at you in the mirror!
Take a step back and look at yourself. You may feel you are working as
hard as you can. You may be going as fast as you can. Still haven’t
been able to get the time away that you and your family deserve. Now
may the time to do something about it. Sometimes, all it takes is
someone who can help you to take an objective look at your business and
offer advice on ways to go and things to try. A good business coach can
do just that.
A coaching process that includes the three steps of (1) conducting an
audit of your present business systems and procedures, (2) supporting
you in devising a plan to get more time away from the office, and (3)
monitoring your and your staff’s actions to implement the changes you
have determined to be important. When these three steps are
implemented, many business owners have found they can have the time
away from the office that they deserve and… enjoy increased profits and
over-all improvement as a bonus!
Think about it. Business coaching may be just the thing you have been looking for!
