Are you committed with your business? What can you do for your business to success? What are you willing to do for your business to success? These are important questions because “What you can do” is not the same as “What are you willing to do”. You can do all in a “perfect” scenario, but you are not willing to do all – because there are variables in the scenario that constraint the business development.
Time is one of our main resources, and it is one of the constraints. Yes, we only have 24 hours per day to take care of personal and business activities. In our journey to success in entrepreneurship, we have to take in consideration the effective distribution of our time.
- How do you use your 24 hours?
- Where are you investing your time?
- Do you have an agenda?
- Do you have “time for yourself” in your agenda?
- Which criteria do you use to set priorities?
- How do feel about it?
Emotions could facilitate the process of efficiently investing our time. Yes, emotions are valuable information that can be used in the process of achieving goals. Actually, manage your emotions in a healthy way is an art called Emotional Intelligence (EI). EI is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way. In other words, Emotional Intelligence is the art and science of listening, accepting, respecting and honoring our emotions.
To achieve success, we need the willingness to persistently try to improve the business, and engage in the pursuit of relevant and meaningful objectives that lead to a profitable and stable business. Business-actualization is strongly related to overall work success and performance. It can be summed up in three words: pursuit of meaning. But it has to be planned. Planning is an important part of doing business. Fail to plan, is plan to fail.
