Hang in there

I don’t think I realized this when I was young, but not all days will be great. They just won’t. And it’s not even because there’s something wrong. There are times a day is just “meh.” And that’s o.k.

Sometimes all we need is a little encouragement to get us through the day, because we know tomorrow will be better.

What does your happily ever after look like?

It’s important to remember who is responsible for writing our stories. Are you the leading character? If not, why not?

If you don’t know what you want, and write that ending, it’s never going to happen. Get on it.

I don’t know who needs to hear this right now

I don’t know about you, but I have to remind myself on the regular that no matter what I’m working on, if it doesn’t go the way I want it to, that’s o.k. It’s normal that things won’t always go my way.

So what do I do when that happens? Take a deep breath. Call a friend. Go for a walk. Do some stretches. Meditate. Take some time off. Get a cup of coffee with a friend.

It’s o.k. to take a rest. But eventually I get back up and take another approach. Eventually I know I’ll get this.

What do you do?

Take a break

solitary road through a forestEveryone needs a break. When we do the same things day in and day out we begin to run on autopilot. Creativity and inspiration go out the window. Just getting your work done becomes more important than doing great work.

Show of hands. Who’s been there? {raises hand}

I don’t care what you’re doing. Stop it. For 24 hours. For 48 hours. For a week if you are able. When you return you’ll find that you see things with fresh eyes, that you’ll approach your work differently.

Your clients, your partner and yourself will thank you.


Find a mastermind group already

cut out figures holding hands and circling a lit lightbulbI take time to mastermind with a variety of people at least once a month. They work best when each member of the group has the ability to be vulnerable and is a genuine contributor to the group. Maybe you’re not all at the same level, but you bring value to the group.

Here’s why every small business owner should participate in a mastermind group: Continue reading
