With strong economic growth forecasts and a new year ahead, start to plan your future now. You only live once, and you deserve to lead the life you've always dreamed of! (I know this sounds a bit tacky, but I mean it!)
Have a look a the Time Management matrix below. Before reading on, decide where you spend most of your time.
Now let's have a look at...
Where do typical small businesses spend most of their time?
Check out the quadrant below - they spend most of their time in the "Urgent / Not important Quadrant. Interuptions, mail, urgent matters, phone calls etc. Do you relate?
Now read on below this diagram...
Where high performance businesses spend most of their time (see below).
As you can see, they spend a large part of their time planning, preparing, relationship building, but also 'true recreation', doing the things you really want to do and are important to you. Isn't that what life is all about?
The reason most people spend a lot of time in the Urgent/Not important quadrant is that they've never learned to plan consistently.
Well, here's the good news: even if you're a small business and you have to be a 'jack of all trades', you can still learn the skills to grow your business you want to have, and lead the life you've always dreamed of.
It's not rocket science, but if you feel you need help, we are EXTREMELY excited to have developed our BEST programme ever.
The first one we're running is for Tourism Businesses and we'd like to invite you to join us (Note: up to 50% New Zealand Trade & Enterprise funding is available.)
