A free day today

It’s a storm day around here today.

The kids are off school. My day’s appointments are canceled. I have a free day. I’m using it to do some of the fun tasks I like to do once in a while.

When you lose a day from your schedule this way, you find a way to work around it. If you have to you can always figure out ways to be more efficient, to drop tasks, or to double up on work done.

What if we made a point of popping ‘unstorm’ days into our schedules? Wouldn’t that make life more fun?

Next week is March Break here in Canada and I’ve decided to take the week off. Before today, my plan was to come to the office for at least one day – it is the best office in Kentville – for planning, writing and other fun things. After today I will reschedule today’s missed appointments into part of one of those drop in times.

Not a bad trade off for a free day today.

The Three Success Factors

I have worked closely with 100’s of business owners and I have seen too many struggle. I have seen what works and what doesn't.

It takes 3 things to succeed:
1. Hard work - and I know you do that already.
2. Knowledge - domain knowledge: you've got that and continue to learn; and business knowledge: this is where everyone focuses and it's easy to find
3. Mindset - This is the killer app. This is what makes or breaks small business owners.

We work on Mindset here at the Business Owners Success Club: how you think about yourself and your business.

When you focus on a business that gives you what you need to live a Good Life and gives others what they need to solve a problem, everything else falls into place and you have a successful business.

Using that as a framework we work on one aspect of business every month. February is "Your Place in Your Community" month.

In March we will open the doors to our online community. Stay Tuned.
