Becoming your best in business

A few of the primary keys to becoming your best in business and/or life include having a clear intent or purpose, a truly inspiring vision, a grand message to share, a genuine social calling, and a targeted niche to serve. From these initial basics arise the primary strategic objectives you would love to accomplish or achieve and a plan for their implementation. But before these objectives can be met, the mastery of the mind is to be initiated.

True business leaders are those who are congruent and integrated, and who can organize and lead their inner parts purposefully. Once leaders govern themselves, they can govern others.

 

Time Is Life

When you loaf about, your mind starts thinking about all kinds of doubts, insecurities, fears, other people's beliefs, and worries about what's happening and what isn't happening. Such dead time can become an energy and confidence trap. It can certainly distract your mind. Any time or space that's not filled with high priorities can automatically become filled with low priorities, and if you don't know your high priorities, you'll fall into the lows.

Have you noticed that when you're busy, you often accomplish and create much more? The more intensely you're focused and active, and the longer you maintain such a focus, the faster your accomplishments (time x intensity = results). Time spent on doubt, fear, or low-priority actions slows down your accomplishment process. When you take your mind off your focus, all you see are obstacles. When your mind is focused on your dreams, you don't have time for the many self-doubts that block them.

 

Raise Your Standard

Anything you do consumes time. To maximize the value of your time, prioritize your interactions. People who seem less busy and want to consume your time may think you're being rude when you say no to their invitations, but busy people understand immediately that you're just choosing to prioritize and wisely manage your time.

People who don't value their own time want to take up yours with small talk, and if you keep associating with people who talk small, you could end up with a small life. You'll find out what kind of people they are by putting a fee on your time and raising that fee regularly. If people really value your skills and time, they'll pay for it.


"A man's growth is seen in the successive choirs of his friends."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Efficiency and Effectiveness
Often when you perform a service for less than you feel you deserve, you lower your worth and enthusiasm and slow your business. Even though you may be working like a dog, it's neither efficient nor effective.

Any aspect of your work that pays less than you truly feel you deserve can become the weak link of your business. In addition to undermining your motivation, inefficiency and ineffectiveness can also reduce profit margins. When you or your employees do effective actions in an inefficient way, ineffective actions in an efficient way, or ineffective actions in an inefficient way, your business becomes diminished. Your worth can be determined by how efficient and effective you are at performing high-priority actions. Business masters are those who love what they do, do what they love, and work efficiently and effectively. They delegate everything else to those who desire to do the same.

 

How can you streamline the actions you take in your business? Ask yourself, "What can I delegate?" You'll be far more productive, energized, and inspired at the end of the day when you can stick to high-priority actions. Unless you value your time, neither will the world.
