Between working on your business versus working in your business.
It’s the same with your career, idea or goal. There are always elements of getting the job done versus the oversight view figuring out new ways of doing things.
Now this is the delicate balance between the two, how much do you do of each? Some people resign to do all the doing and others to do all the thinking… either or isn’t that hard (nor inferior). Whatever keeps you happy.
But for those that need to do both (case in point small business owner) how do you strike the balance? I haven’t found a solid rule but my personal guideline (as it is for all goals) is today better than yesterday? Am I little bit closer to my goal? Each day I want to inch closer.
For all those small changes really add up.
At the least I need to do a little bit each and every day working on my business versus in it. Some days I hit the sweet spot others I miss it. As long as it is a bit better and I am increasing momentum I’m happy.
To be honest even that’s not easy to get that little bit each and every day what I can share is that over time it gets easier. Hang in there, focus on the vision, keep chipping away at it.
