If you’re a business owner without a proven system you can trust, you probably know how even one day away from your business can flip everything on its head. Right? (And I hope you can’t relate to that because you’re plugged into a good system)
Yeah, one day away from business can wreak havoc.
I’ll bet there have been as many headaches from a day off as there have been days. And that’s just a guess, on my part. But I’m thinking about a business owner I talked to, a couple of years ago, who had the “day off headaches.”
Bob (and that’s not his real name) built a booming business and made his dream come true. But then the headaches started. Because Bob’s business required (you could almost say “demanded”) him to be on the job (uh-oh, there’s that three letter word) almost every minute of every day.
So, Bob said he never even had “time for a fun game of golf” anymore.
Yeah, his business definitely owned him. Something I’m always working to help my clients avoid.
And I only changed the name. The story is true. Way too true for way too many dream chasers and risk takers.
A friend of mine told me, this morning, how he dropped off some shipping at the post office today. And he said the postal worker told him how incredibly hectic the day before had been. Because that was the day after Labor Day. And that was one of those Mondays off even business owners take. But then, they come back to Tuesday, and everything feels like it quadrupled on them.
But never fear.
Because there are some simple (even if they’re not easy) tools you can use to avoid those kinds of headaches. And I’m talking about tools that’ll make sure your business won’t crumble any time you decide to take a day off. It’s like taking the most effective aspirin with no stomach problems.
But if you prefer stress-filled days and the headaches that go with them, then you absolutely don’t need these tools. And if you’re happy when you fill your week up with busy-ness and worry, then, you certainly don’t need my help. Or anybody else’s.
Sure, I could tell you that’s a recipe for disaster. But your head will hurt too much to hear me.
