“I’ma just take a sec…”
Do you have any daily rituals that help you attack the day in the best way you can? Perhaps a mid-morning Starbucks break or a certain playlist that helps you focus while you work?
Never neglect your ‘must-haves’ in your business life. My #1 must have is COFFEE! Just kidding, but not really. Aside from coffee, I need a strong network and the support of my family, which I’ve been lucky to have. I also need help with the parts of my business that I’m either not as good at as others or not as passionate about. Make sure to surround yourself with people who complement your skill set. I also depend on exercise, meeting new clients and colleagues for coffee, creating artwork, hanging out at events, and spending time with my family. Neglecting the things that make you happy will reduce your morale, motivation and focus over time. When I feel off-balance, I always re-focus with ‘me’ time before client work.
It’s a good idea to pinpoint what helps you! For our social media and digital marketing specialist Rachel, it’s her morning coffee and yoga practice before work! What are your must-haves?
