Every year when Thanksgiving rolls around, we’re inspired to look within and consider the things we should be thankful for in life and in business. But it’s also important to take the time this season as a way to consider all your hard work this year and celebrate the strides you’ve made, both large and small – to look back and recognize the achievements you’ve made, especially over the last year. Remember it’s about progress, not perfection, give yourself a break. This year, as you celebrate Thanksgiving with your family and friends, remember to celebrate yourself as well and take a few days off!
If you can’t leave your business unattended or you don’t have someone who can fill in and you don’t want to close up shop, then it’s time to look at your systems and processes. Lets dedicate 2016 to putting strategies and plans in place to become the business owner you’re meant to be, one that works on their business rather then always in it.
In the meantime, if you can’t take a full-fledged break from the business, at least give yourself some small reprieves. Commit to planning time to spend with family and friends. Understand what you need to be happy and take breaks when you need them! Time is a precious resource and we only have so much of it. We can always make another dollar, but we can’t make another minute of time. Give yourself a break.
