Hello there!

I drifted away from my discipline for a few days there, but the great news is it gave me insights on the effectiveness of slowing down so you can speed up in your business.

This is the time of year when the weather starts changing, spring break sets in, and allergies take some people out of the game for a little while. The opportunities are still plentiful we are just starting the 2nd quarter of the year!

You have probably crapped out on your New Year resolution by now, and some of your big goals for the year seem like they are getting harder and harder to achieve, this is not the time to slow down and get distracted by the “what if’s.” Don’t feel sorry for yourself if everything hasn’t gone exactly the way you want it to because life is what happens once you have set your plan.

This is your opportunity, now is the time to reaffirm your goals and action plan, you must evaluate what has changed this year and what new tools and opportunities you have. Do not be afraid to edit your goals and action plan, just accepting what you initially set up will not do. You must re-write the goals. The more often you are able to do this the better you will internalize them.

You may have family coming into town, your allergies may be going crazy, you may be nowhere near your objectives for the year, it may seem like nothing is going how you planned, BUT this IS YOUR TIME! All you can do is all you can do, you must not abandon your principals.

Learning more, doing more, becoming more, that is what personal growth is all about. Slowing down to sharpen your skills and readjust your course of action is what will assure future success.

What inspires, what motivates, what excites you in your business? What is it that keeps you going day after day? Let us know.

  1. Thanks Joe,
    You have some great advice – nice and timely for me, especially since my goals and plans have adapted much since the beginning of the year, and you are right – its only the beginning of second quarter! Lots of year left!.

    All the more reason to re-write my goals to match my adjusted vision and direction. Im’ exited these days about how social media can play such a critical part in growth of my biz – The learning curve is immense and as you say: all you can do is all you can do. Just keep doing it!
