As an entrepreneur and business owner there is never a day off. Yes, it is important to make sure you get rest and rejuvenate. Yes, it is important to find a healthy balance between your professional and personal life. Yes, it is important to find time for family and your hobbies and interests. Although all the things are important, I’ve learned that even on Saturday’s and Sunday’s you must be willing to put in the work to drive consistent and continuous momentum towards your goals, dreams, and desired outcomes for your business.
Next year will mark the 10 year anniversary of starting my own leadership advisory and management consulting firm. It is a privilege to serve our clients over that span of time and has been a blessing to grow my business year over year. However, it has also been built on a tireless work ethic and personal commitment to driving sustainable results. There have been ups and downs, trails and errors, and moments when I wanted to give up and quit. However, you learn to press through the adversity and obstacles that cross your path.
Putting in a little bit of work on Sunday goes a long way. It gets your Monday’s off on a right track. It allows you to find space for some of the more strategic and long-term aspirations for the work you do. Again, it is always good to unplug and recalibrate, but there are always things you need to give attention to so you can successfully grow your business.
So if you’re just starting out with a new business or aspire to be an entrepreneur, know that your efforts play a major factor in your success. Be willing to put in the work, learn from your mistakes, and never give up. It will take some and be especially challenging early on, but the long-term rewards will be reaped if you continue to sow into your business on a regular basis.
