When you’re running your own business, you find yourself taking on several roles, roles you didn’t even know existed. You find yourself wearing too many hats — and eventually end up feeling overworked, overwhelmed, and burned out. That’s why you should always aim to “replace” yourself.
Many goal-oriented achievers tend to overcommit — and thus abandon their personal needs, such as health, family, friends, and fun. And because they are stretched so thin, they can’t give their best selves to those they promised to spend time with, whether it’s their clients or loved ones. Their professional calendar is often the culprit.
Recently on the blog, we talked about the seeds of a strategic plan, which includes establishing a shared vision for your firm and team, as well as a mission that brings your vision to fruition. Now it’s time to create the structure of your plan — which is sometimes easier said than done.
When it comes to building a high-performing team, persistence is what delivers true results. Put your team on the fast track toward success by introducing a meeting that will inspire all members to support each other and give their best.
Think of the long-term growth of your firm and team. To achieve your strategic goals, you need top performers and an environment that fuels the progress you need to succeed. None of that success is possible, however, without a strong foundation — the base of your totem pole. And that starts with your own, personal vision.
