Since what feels like the beginning of time business owners have been hardwired to think that working themselves to the bone is the only way to be successful but that’s not necessarily the case. Sure you have to do the hard yards to achieve big things but it doesn’t have to be all on your shoulders, and it shouldn’t come at the cost of your body, or mental health.
A lot of business owners think to themselves “if I just get through this busy patch, then I will be able to relax”, but that an endless cycle as “busy patches” seem to continually pop up one after the other. When business gets like that, which it does, it can become draining and effect your mood and motivation. Because you are a leader, it is likely that it will rub off on your team, and even your family, or social groups. So it’s important to learn how to stop the busy patches.
In this episode you’ll learn about Stephen Covey’s 4 quadrants and how your brain reacts to tasks. It’s about being able to recognize what your brain is doing so that you can stop it from effecting you. You will learn about increasing your productivity capacity and how you can better use your time to put an end to busy patches, not letting recency and negativity bias take over. By the end of the episode you’ll be using your time on the RIGHT type of hard work, creating opportunities to delegate and feeling the stress just melt away.
