Humans are lazy by nature.
Yup…you heard me right!
And I’m going to prove it…
Laziness is the primary reason we invent things. We keep looking to create stuff that’ll help us do things faster and quicker. We don’t do maths again with our brains since we now have calculators, we no longer go to the mall to buy provisions; thanks to e-commerce websites and people like you and me…he-he. Our propensity for laziness is also what makes us susceptible to get-rich quick scams and promotions.
Bottom line is that we are a lazy species and this attitude of laziness and complacency often slips over into our business. This can have disastrous consequences for the entrepreneur or would-be entrepreneur. Handling and running a business requires a ton of hard work, and as entrepreneurs and business owners, laziness is a luxury we cannot afford!
We shouldn’t just go about telling people we are entrepreneurs, we should also show it, by our time and commitment devoted to improving and excelling at whatever business we are running.
According to current stats, a significant percentage of successful entrepreneurs devote about 60 hours to their business every week! If you can’t see yourself working at this level, then maybe you aren’t ready to bring your business dreams to reality.
Now, before we go on, it is important to realize that there is a difference between working hard and working smart. One can spend a ton of time on his business but achieve very little when compared to someone else who spends less time. So, how does this apply to you and your business?
Ensure you work not just hard, but smart as well! Make sure your time is judiciously spent, invent your time into productive activities that will move your business forward and take you to the next level. Look at the activities you are engaged in throughout the day, analyze which ones are helping your business progress and which one isn’t, cut down time for those activates that aren’t doing much for your business and focus on the ones that are pushing things forward.
Review your actions. Whenever you find yourself engaged in any activity, ask yourself, “does this help move my business towards my goal.” If your answer is “no,” then make the necessary adjustments. This would keep you focused and ensure you are always engaged in productive activities.
Time is steadily slipping away, and like the adage goes “Time waits for no man” productivity isn’t only about hard work, but it also demands that one works smart! Become a smart entrepreneur today and place your business in the position for success!
Have a great week!
