Get to Work

Shaking my head that another month has past and I haven’t reached all of my goals. I have made a serious dent and my deadlines are met so I feel great about the progress. I know that I have a lot to do and could probably use a virtual assistant to do half of the busy work I do in a day, but it is hard to trust someone else with your baby. Your gift to share with the world.

When I am rounding my twelfth hour and I know that I have too much pending to just quit now, I often find myself pushing through until my work is complete because I wanted to be a writer and that’s what writers do… we write. I use #vixxbuzz as a way to express myself. It isn’t as easy as is seemed at first because once I gave myself permission to do what I love, the flood gates were opened and ideas populated my brain. They fill my mind to overflowing and I can’t write them down fast enough, but they are there ready to be heard.

Have you ever loved something so much that you just couldn’t stop doing it? I mean really loved! Like when my kids were little and I just wanted to hold them all day and even when people came over to visit, I didn’t want to give them the chance to hold my babies but I did. I let other people hold these precious bundles of joy and it was okay. It didn’t change how much they loved me or responded to my attention. Why can’t I let someone else take what I have here and hold on to the little things that keep my focus split?

This is one of the things that entrepreneurs face every day. Finding a way to balance all they know in a way that maximizes the time they put into their business is key to business success. One person can’t do it all! You have to have a team of people you can count on to forward your vision. The ability of a team to achieve far outweighs what one person can accomplish alone. It’s not enough to love what you do. You have to love it enough to let others step in and assist you in accomplishing your goals. When you do this, you do more and that’s why we wanted to have a business in the first place.

If all you wanted was to do what everyone else is doing at the same level of competence, it wasn’t necessary to own your own business. The world doesn’t need more of the same. It needs more that is better, that makes a difference, and gives the world a glimpse into what can be accomplished when we stop making excuses and get to work. Otherwise we would just get a J-O-B! So, if you find yourself at the beach wishing you could do more with your business you should get to work. There is always more you can do.
