Improve Your Business
There is an old saying that you get what you deserve in life. This is based on one of the irrefutable laws of the universe called “cause and effect”. In the east, it’s known as Karma. However, Karma is based on having a clear direction, working toward that direction, and using your time effectively.
Do you have the type of business that you deserve? Of course, you do. Understand that what you have today is a direct reflection of all the choices and decisions you have made in the past. Do you need to improve your business so that it gives you what you want?
The more important question to ask yourself is whether your business as it stands right now is worthy of you?
This is an interesting question to ponder, isn’t it?
Your time is finite
As a responsible business owner and leader of your business, one of the things you should be focusing on at all times is the direction you have set your business one and the resources available to you and your business. Controlling these is one of the things that makes a more successful enterprise.
The most valuable resource you have is your time. It is finite and non-renewable. This means that once you have spent it, it’s gone forever. The more people you hire… the more time you have.
Your duty as a responsible human being is to use your time wisely. How are you spending yours? Are you making the most of each and every moment? If you’re not, you should be. As well, how are you utalising other people’s time to achieve your goals?
Time management is one of the things that separates successful business owners from the rest.
Money gives you choice
You may have no choice when it comes to the amount of time available to you – there are only 24 hours in each day, and that is the same no matter who you are – but you do have choices in just about any other field.
Money extends your privilege to choose what to do, when to do it and how to do it. It is a privilege and one that you should therefore take seriously.
If you really think about it, this is the one difference money makes to most people. Poor people often don’t have a choice about how to live their lives whereas the rich certainly do.
Can it give you your dreams and more?
Think carefully about this now. Is money the cure-all for everything? Over the years, my experience working with the rich and famous is that it certainly isn’t. And it certainly appears to me that money doesn’t bring happiness. Not in itself, it doesn’t. What it does do, however, is that it gives one choices, which can lead to happiness if the choices taken are the right ones.
What do you think about money? Has it helped you to realize your dreams?
