Business consulting is a passion of mine and when you love what you do and don't see yourself doing anything else anytime soon, you share your passion and love for it with others in hopes of encouraging others to be able to do the same. When those that support us can find success, I feel driven and gain a sense of motivation to push ourselves even harder.
Journaling ideas, goals, and plans are critical to success in accomplishing anything in life. If breaking free from the corporate world is of interest to you, it requires determination and the ability to deal with failure. I believe there are three key elements for running a business:
Have a well-defined purpose for your business.
Whether your business purpose is to help grow, achieve, or build, it needs to be defined. When your purpose is unclear, it can be difficult to set goals for progress. Putting pen to paper can lead to brainstorms that allow you to unlock different parts of your brain. Journaling can help capture your thought process on paper.
Know your numbers.
Having passion and drive will only get you so far. To truly know your business you have to know your numbers. Less businesses fail due to lack of passion than lack of capital. Take a few minutes daily, weekly, or monthly to jot down your numbers. Journaling has been known to boost memory and cognitive function. Also, if you keep your journal on hand, you have your numbers at a moment's glance.
When your decisions are rooted in integrity you will make more than just money. You will create a lasting reputation that drives and determines future results and will be a key element in the longevity of your business. Create some time for yourself to reflect on your appreciation for what you are doing. Journaling can be a great way for you to express gratitude and bolster your decision-making skills.
Business consulting requires a lot of thoughtfulness and the ability to see what others don't. Journaling has allowed me to easily map plans and problem-solve when issues arise. Journaling can be a way for you to strengthen and capture your thought process, deepen your passion and potentially uncover untold ideas. You have an opportunity to hold your thoughts at your fingertips. Grab a pen and your favorite SohoSpark journal to get started on your business venture.
