29 Jan Take a Vacation Every Week Ep. #24
When are we most productive as workers? Most likely, the week before you go on holiday. We complete 50 tasks in one day, feeling motivated, momentum in full swing knowing we need to get things done before we retreat to our sunny location, relaxing on white sandy beaches. Why can’t we be this productive every day? B.D. explains the methods behind the madness of taking more time out whilst getting more work done. Recline on your deckchair, sip your margarita and listen to this episode of Grow, Sell and Retire.
“Shorten your work week and put in less time. You will get more done and use your time more effectively. Write down your plan on a Monday or Friday, consolidate your tasks into smaller packages so you will free up more time to get more done.”
Now you have more time, you can realign your focus and consider what it is you want to get out of your business this year. Do you want to get systems in place, so you can leave the business for a period with the comfort of knowing operations will continue as smoothly as if you were there? Do you want to improve your niche and hone in on your ideal client? Do you need to establish your brand? All these aspects are essential for business to carry on as normal, whether we’re there or not.
“What brand is brand? Brand is what happens behind your back. It’s what people say about you when you’re not listening. What they think about whatever it is you’re doing to make their lives better. That’s why it’s essential to create a brand we’re happy for people to talk about when we’re not in the room. Create a brand YOU.”
