A Foodie’s Approach To Success
I get it, you’re on a mission. You have a dream and a vision for your life, and you know that the only way to realize it is to hustle and grind.
Or is it?
I continuously challenge Thought Leaders to look at solving problems in unique ways.
Here’s the four-pronged foodie approach to achieving more while actually doing less.
Plan the Harvest
Harvest doesn’t happen all year long, and yet, entrepreneurs are programmed to believe that success comes when you harvest… So, when you’re not harvesting, you think and feel as though you’re losing valuable time.
What if, instead, you planned your cycles and seasons? Just like in farming, there will be time blocked to prepare, plant, nurture, and finally harvest—each in its own time and season.
Incorporating this into your short and long-term growth plan will allow you to maximize your efficiency, yield, and enjoyment.
Vary the Menu
We all love something new now and then. What if you approached building your business the same way a great restaurant approaches a menu? There are some staples and some specials. The specials change or rotate.
Perhaps you have paperwork on the Monday menu, follow-up on Tuesday, social networking on Wednesday…
I’ve discovered that variety on your work menu will increase productivity multiple times over.
Feed Your Soul
What about dessert? How often are you incorporating fun into your life? How much time do you set aside for your sweetie, your friends, and family?
I’ve come to regret (and even resent) every period of my life where I’ve deprived myself of time with friends, fun, and loved ones. Sure, there are periods where you have to put your head down, but don’t you think your closest friends want to celebrate you? Your community is your lifeline. Eventually, while you’re hustling your way to success, you’re going to need people (real people) to share the success with.
And hey, dessert doesn’t have to be unhealthy. Look at it as the way to celebrate your progress and your commitment to living the life you truly want.
Rate and Review
Do you take the time to rate and review the restaurants you eat at? Or, do you get what you’ve paid for and leave it at that?
Consider this. Doing the bare minimum gets you the bare minimum. If you’re doing the bare minimum for your favorite restaurants, you’re also treating yourself and your business the same way.
Rate and review yourself. Here’s the catch. I challenge you to positively rate and review, no matter what.
Because what you focus on expands.
Do you want more of what’s working? Or, do you want to focus on what isn’t working?
When you focus on what is working, suddenly, you start getting more of the same.
Try the foodie approach yourself and let me know when you find yourself with much more time (and money) to enjoy eating out at your favorite spots. I’ll meet you there!
