Every year when Thanksgiving rolls around, we’re inspired to look within and consider the things we should be thankful for in life and in business. But it’s also important to take the time this season as a way to consider all your hard work this year and celebrate the strides you’ve made, both large and small – to look back and recognize the achievements you’ve made, especially over the last year. This year, as you celebrate Thanksgiving with your family and friends, remember to celebrate yourself as well and take a few days off!
What’s that? You can’t leave your business unattended? You don’t have someone who can fill in and you don’t want to close up shop? If that’s the case, then dedicate 2014 to putting strategies and plans in place to become a chief executive officer that owns the business instead of a chief everything officer who handles every aspect of the business. Your local Growth Coach can help with that.
In the meantime, if you can’t take a full-fledged break from the business, at least give yourself some small reprieves. Take 15 minutes each day for a strategic time out. Use this time to reflect and re-energize. Commit to planning time to spend with family and friends. Understand what you need to be happy and take breaks when you need them!
Don’t forget to celebrate your business, your family, and all the blessings in your life this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving!
