What’s In This Episode:
It’s a new year! Are you ready to go or are you kind of crawling into 2019 a little bit burnt out? If you’re the latter, Brad’s got a 5-day email course that he wants you to read, called 5 Days to Get Control of Your Business and Your Life. In it, you’ll find a simple exercise to cut down your work hours down immediately, a magic phrase that improves the output of your team and empowers them to solve their own problems, a proven practice to enable you to set boundaries, and a way to start fitting in things that you enjoy.
If this is something you’re interested in, you’ll find it here. Sign up and let Brad know what you think!
“Are you paying attention to the bigger picture?” – Jill
Are you working in your business vs. working on your business? Now, you hear that everywhere – but in the beginning, it was a reasonable question. And how would you know if you’re working in or on? Jill’s issue with the question is that it assumes there is a right answer.
In Brad’s view, he thinks the goal should be that there’s nothing that has to get done this week (as in a deadline) that he – as the business owner – is responsible for doing.
“When you’re in the details, it’s hard to have any perspective.” – Brad
Brad uses Monday mornings to organize, and then by Monday afternoon, he knows what his objectives for the week are. He’s not opposed to switching back and forth (from working in your business vs. working on the business) but he cautions against getting stuck on details.
As Jill is going through some changes in her business, Brad thinks that’s great: we can only make changes as fast as people can absorb it.
