I need space
Don’t worry, we’re not breaking up!
It was just something that caught my eye the other day…
I read that all plants need these seven things to grow:
1 – Water
2 – Light
3 – Air
4 – Nutrients
5 – The right Temperature
6 – Time, and…
7 – Space to grow
And the same goes for you and your business…
Just like plants, you need to make sure you have created the right environment so that you have the right people, in the right seats, all aligned to that one end goal. Once you have embedded this, you can then give them the tools and get out their way so they – and your business – can grow.
And like plants, you need Time. Allocated time blocked out in your diary so you can work on those things that will make the biggest difference in your business. It’s never going to grow if you’re firefighting customer queries or stuck “on the tools” every day, year after year.
We’re just like plants in that we all need Space. Space to think, to work on yourself, to get help, to take time out to charge your batteries. If you’re running around like a headless chicken 24/7, then all you’re going to feel is overwhelmed, burnt out, and fed up.
So, be green-fingered in your business this week, and see which areas you still need cultivating.
And never be afraid to ask for help – we have an amazing community we can reach out to.
