To start our own venture is what we all dream and that is why, we leave no stone unturned in order to determine that it becomes a huge and instant success. There are many ways in which, you can work at your full potential to ensure you stay focused and dedicated in order to find the right path towards sky.
With time, there will be many distractions and it is at such times that your will power and sheer determination will be tested. Make sure to find some or the other ways to keep yourself motivated and dedicated to the cause. Never be satisfied and make sure the fuel does not run out anytime soon.
One of the pressing issue that I would like to address today is not something technical or how to conduct business meeting or write an email, it is about one of the most important thing that if neglected can result into much bigger problems; it is about TIME MANAGEMENT.
Time is more important than you think it is as with each minute you waste going for an unproductive meeting or having out of the context conversations, someone else around the world is using the same to beat you in the field.
It is vital that you invest time into things and places that will fetch you some great dividends.
No matter the sort of industry that you are working in, I would like to point out some mistakes that you are making willingly or unwillingly.
Go For Meetings That Won’t Result Into Any Outcomes
Often you will get mails regarding meeting over a coffee and discuss some ideas from people who offer expansion of business. No one is better aware about the current status of business than you, so there is no point in meeting them and listening to things that you already know.
Get Rid Of Unproductive Employees
It might sound like a hardcore business aspect, but it is a fact as well. If you think the one working for you have offered all they can and there is nothing new, it is better to find someone with more energy and innovation that will result into proper use of resources.
Do not let emotions get in the way of business as it can get toxic with time.
No More “Something for Nothing” Clients!
Let’s admit it; we all have some client who always wants a little extra for free. They do not care what you have to offer or how much work and effort goes into the whole deal, they will always question your prices and work ethic.
It is not right to justify your work to them all the time, if they do not value now, they probably never will. So, spent the time on finding new ones, rather than have a crappy relation with the current ones.
Cliché but True – “No Shortcuts”
Copy-pasting, plagiarizing, repurposing, skimming, the list will go on for long and but the end results of them is and always will be the same – FAILURE. Do not think the client won’t catch up with it or you have all the exits covered. Even a small loophole will bring down the building.
Come to Office with an Agenda
Do not just walk into the day with nothing to move forward it or as in other terms it is said, winging it. Have a work day plan the day before and try to stick to it. Make sure to have a plan of action and follow it no matter what.
Schedule timely meetings, set the priorities straight. Do not be the boss, be a leader. A boss always says do it while a leader says, let’s do it. Try to work on the ground and lay a firm foundation for the betterment of the organization.
I hope the above mentioned points help you in your future endeavors. We all knowing or not have made or are making the mistakes. I have made them and it is find to do so, but the problem persists, when you do not rectify it. That is my sole agenda with this post.
Ensure not to follow such and you will get sure shot success. If you have anything else to add, feel free to write in the comments section below.
