Areas to Upgrade Your Thinking
As women in business, we typically think about what we need to DO to get ahead. Today, however, I want to discuss another important aspect - your THINKING.
I want you to ask yourself, "Am I thinking like a CEO? Am I thinking like a woman who wants to expand her Fempire? Am I thinking like a woman who wants to have a massive impact through her business?"
Or are you thinking like someone who just wants to make enough to cover you and your bills? This kind of thinking will not have you blissing in your business.
Think about running your business like the business you want it to become in the future. Here are a few areas to upgrade your thinking and move you where you want to go better and faster:
1. Take time every day for thinking and planning. This is a daily success practice. Every day take time to review your goals, review what the next week has in store, review what projects you need to be working on, and review if there is anything missing you need to complete your tasks. This supports you in being proactive rather than reactive in your business when you are clear on where to put your attention now and throughout the week to get the results you want.
2. Become a master at communicating acknowledgment. One of the most important communication skills to focus on mastering is acknowledgment. Make sure you’re taking time each week to acknowledge your team, your vendors, your clients, and the people in your whole life. When acknowledging others, be sure to mention not just what they did, but also mention the way they were doing it - with intention, with enthusiasm, with kindness, etc. Most importantly, be sure to share how what happened impacted you.
3. Make sure you are strategically planning projects and meeting your deadlines. Many projects in your business are interconnected, meaning certain things have to be completed before other tasks can start. When planning projects be sure to have deadlines for all the smaller milestones. What people often miss is blocking out time on their calendar to complete those tasks in advance of the deadlines. Also, as you are planning ask yourself, "is this my job, or can someone else do this?" The more you delegate the more you are freed up to do what only you can do, in addition to strategy, speaking, selling, self-care, and serving your clients.
Implement these guiding principles and you will be more effective in many ways and enjoy more revenue and bliss in your business!
