Oh dear. Guess who forgot to write a blog post yesterday? Well, forgot is too strong a word, there was lots to do, and life can get in the way sometimes.
But it has lead me to think about something that is so important in business, and especially in most types of homeworking business. Consistency.
Those times when it’s sooooo hard to get out of bed in the morning? Well, there’s no boss to moan, but your bank balance might suffer. If you were your own employee, would you employ you?
So many things that are easy to do are also easy not to do. Of course, you don’t have to make that 10th phone call today. But if you don’t, you might miss out on the person who skyrockets your business.
Jeff Olson writes in his book ‘Slight Edge’ about how small actions, compounded over time, can work massively in your favour, or work massively against you.
Consistently eating an apple a day would lead to what? Well, probably a lot better health than eating a cake a day, that’s for sure.
So, consistent positive actions each day in your business, not focusing too much on the outcome, but focusing on continuing all those small activities that give you a slight edge over your peers would lead to what? Well, I would think a rather healthier business than if you neglect things a little every day.
What do you think?
To your success,
