Jill of all trades juggling it all, working in the business and have no time left over to work on the business? Sounds familiar? May sound counter-intuitive, but sometimes to speed up the acceleration of your business you need to slow down but with support.
In other words, to put a strategy and/or action plan in place you need to block out time to do the 3R’s: Reflect, Review and Reset. This could be done with a mentor, business coach or peer. So, how could working with one or all three of these personal development and business champions help you execute the 3R’s to up-level your business?
Reflect: Working with a mentor, business coach and/or peer gives you the opportunity to look at your business with new eyes. Giving yourself the time to reflect and reaffirm or cast a new vision can be the first to re-energizing you and your business goals.
Review: Having virtual or in-person dates in your diary to work with someone on your business means that you are prioritising the time and headspace to evaluate how you got to where you are what you would like to take forward, discard and take on board. In being held to account in where you have been and where you want to get too, you can build up a SWOT (Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities, Threats) and Gap analysis of your business. That can give you a clearer picture of how things are and what you need to do.
Reset: In working with somebody that can bring their business wisdom and experience to your business, they can help you develop a roadmap/strategy to help you get from where you are now to where you want to go. As they say if you plan to fail, you fail to plan so taking out the time to develop an action plan from someone who has been there and done that, could speed you up when you have taken the time to slow down.
