Stick to the Plan

Productivity, Videos,

Being a Business Owner means you’re your own boss, which can be a good and a bad thing! Its easy to go off plan at times, but that’s not necessarily the best thing to do!

Hi, and welcome to another episode of BaranovTV designed to demystify the world of accounts and tax and to help your business grow.

Now, it’s actually getting quite late today. Chris and I have just walked in the door as we’ve been out to see a potential new client. It was a really interesting business, a great personality and all very positive, so absolutely worth doing but on the way back we got caught in terrible traffic. There’d been an accident on the motorway and it’s taken us nearly three and a half hours to get home.

Now, I had a plan for this afternoon but that has gone way out the window.

However, whilst it’s very warm outside, it’s a Friday afternoon, we’re out with friends this evening, I’d be really tempted to just say ‘Do you know? The week is done’, to kick back, have a bit of chill and then go out with our friends tonight.

But I know that I need to get some stuff done.

I know that I wanted to record a few videos today for Baranov TV to make sure that I’m ahead, because next week is busy and there’s one due to go out next Friday. So, despite the fact it would have been really easy to kick back, I’ve made the effort and actually I’m recording this EXTRA video because I think it’s a really good opportunity to just make a point really.

The fact is that as business owners, it’s really easy for us to make, the good thing is that we’re our own bosses but the bad thing is also that we’re our own bosses and we can make those decisions and sometimes we can, rather than do the hard work, we can take the easy option.

Actually being a business owner is about being disciplined, being tenacious and when things conspire against you, just carrying on anyway.

So, that’s what I’m going to do this afternoon.

I’m going to get my videos recorded anyway and maybe I might just have a glass of something refreshing when I DO get out with our friends this evening!

So, I suppose my message this week is really about what do you do within your business where you perhaps don’t push as hard as you could do? Because if you can push through, then you will see the difference in your business and things will work better for you potentially.

I’m going to crack on with my videos; I’m going to wish you all a very nice evening and I’ll see you all very soon.
