Setting Deadlines For Yourself

Do deadlines work for you?

I bet if they are external deadlines i.e. set by someone else such as your clients or HMRC, then you meet them.

But how do you set them for yourself?

This is often a missing piece of the puzzle when it comes to moving your business forward, and finding the time to work ON your business.

Planning, marketing, documenting processes, working smarter, developing your team, defining and using measures – these are all critical areas you need to be spending time and focus on in order to move your business forward.

I know you don’t feel like you have any time to spend on these, but what if you had to? What if you would lose customers if you didn’t? What if you would get fined if you didn’t? What if you would get exhausted, frustrated, and even ill if you didn’t make time to work ON your business?

It can be hard to impose your own deadlines, and find a way to create the time to do all of this, but once you see the benefits and results, you’ll soon start sticking to it.

If you’re looking to break through to the next level in your business, here’s a list of questions to ask yourself – and to set time aside to answer honestly. Any that you answer ‘No’ to, should be added to your to-do list with a self-imposed deadline to ensure they get addressed.

I hope you found this useful and that some of the questions above have helped you identify areas in your business that need attention.

Have a great weekend!
