let’s do this!

Hey there,

In this age of go go go, it’s easy to forget or overlook the value of pause and reflection. Rather than being a waste of time, reflection can actually give you more clarity which then leads to more productivity. It doesn’t matter if you’re a wellness instructor or restaurant owner or designer/artist, it is important to set aside time each week to reflect on the week, month and year.  Are you ready to do this?

Here are 3 simple steps:

1) Spend a few minutes on Monday reflecting on what occurred the previous week –  the good and the bad.

2) Write down any missed opportunities and areas for growth. Nip those “not so good” ideas in the bud. Here are some questions to get your juices flowing – How were your sales for the week? What did you sell a lot of and need to replenish? What products maybe weren’t as popular as you expected? Were there any opportunities you missed? Were your marketing efforts successful? How was your web traffic?

3) Track your performance. Once you’ve answered these questions applicable to your business, you’ll be giving yourself a great way to track progress and ideas. Then, you can start making improvements! Even the most successful businesses are constantly evolving and improving. :)
