2- No time like the present
What do you want for your business? In one word, I would think that you want results. Results come from hard work. I realise that some may say that this is an assumption but up to now, in all y years of working in small businesses I have never come across sustainable success that has not been created by hard work. You either succeed or fail. You make money or go under.
Does this mean you should not get into daily routines? Of course not. As long as your routine is helping you get a profitable result, then they are not considered ruts, but pathways to success. Think of it this way. Efficiency is getting the job done right, effectiveness is getting the right job done.
Start today, never put off till tomorrow what you can do today as tomorrow will hold its own challenges.
