Are You Distracted?
Typically, mid-summer is a time when business owners and employees alike are either getting back from, or beginning to get ready to go on, vacation.
People are talking about fishing, hiking, biking, road tripping, and sipping cool drinks on sandy beaches. Distractions tend to multiply, while focus and work efficiency can begin to slip.
Let’s face it, this time of year an air of casualness invades most businesses. The team has been hard at it for half the year and most everyone is ready for a break. Vacation mindset can add energy to a business environment, OR it can be the beginning of a slump that hits you hard in the fourth quarter.
You've worked hard this year and hopefully you're on plan to meet your goals, so you don't want to let the vacation mindset derail your progress. Follow these three simple steps to ensure that distractions don't prevent your business from hitting goals.
This is a simple exercise, but Stop, Assess, and Prioritize are three small steps that can help bring energy and focus back into your business now and anytime you or your team get off track and need to refocus.
