How To Make Best Use Of Your time During This Period As An Entrepreneur:
1. Start Asking the right question:
Life is all about perspective. I love the quote that says “When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change”. So, instead of asking yourself questions about what you can’t change e.g “Why Corona Virus? Why is this happening to us?, Do we offend God ? etc. Start asking the right question by asking yourself “Why is this thing happening for me? “, What are the things I’m suppose to get done during this period?”.
The first sets of questions are from a Victim perspective, while the second questions are from the perspective of someone that wants to win. Why is this thing happening for me? Is it for you to bond well with your family? Is it for you to learn a particular or multiple skill? Is it for you to develop a particular product? Is it for you to get equipped with what you lack? Is it for you to grow spiritually? Is it for you to move your business online?
So, there’s a purpose why Corona Virus is happening for you. Just sit down and think through it, after which take action.
2. Time to evaluate the year:
What you don’t evaluate, you can’t measure, what you don’t measure, you can’t scale. So far, you’ve spent about 3 months this year. Right? Of course, you have. So, How far with your goals? How many of them have you achieved? Or better put how many are you building system to achieve?
You see, evaluating yourself will help you right the wrong, improve your result, change your Strategy (If it’s not working, etc). That’s why you must evaluate yourself during this period. Think back and think through things. Have I done enough? Have I done less than I should have? What next can I do? Asking yourself these questions will help you achieve greater things during this period.
As an Entrepreneur, you can evaluate your business and see how far you’ve achieved this year and what you can do to improve some processes in your business.
3. Set Goals for this period & Get Accountability Partner:
To fully maximize this period, set some targets for yourself and get someone to be accountable to. Get someone that will ensure you do what you planned doing this period.
Accountability makes you more committed to whatever you set to achieve during this period. So, set a specific target for yourself. Do you want to complete writing your book? do more exercise, read a book, bond well with your kids, etc. Just be specific about what you intend to do during this period and be bullish about doing it.
Set weekly goals for yourself. Break down your weekly goals into daily target. Doing so will make it easy for you to achieve those goals.
4. Improve your skills or knowledge:
Coronavirus has come and will go someday but the skills or knowledge you gain during this period will stay with you forever. Therefore, use your free time to learn something. Use this time for your personal development since you have more free time now. Net worth increase aligns with better value Offering.
And for you to increase the value you offer, you have to improve your skills or knowledge. You can make only make more money when you become better with your skills. Most times, I recommend people learn high-income skills rather than low-income skills. High-income skills are skills you can exchange in exchange for a lot of money and vice versa for low-income skills.
High-income skills such as Sales & Marketing, Copywriting, funnel building, etc are skills entrepreneurs should work towards getting.
5. Build Your Spiritual Life:
This sounds funny, right? Yeah, but it’s the truth. I’m of the firm belief that spirituality is important to live a balanced life. This time afford you an opportunity to build your spiritual life and get closer to God. Maximize the time you have at your disposal to get more rooted in God.
