Next month is December and then 2016 is over.
The end of the year is nigh.
You might be up to your neck in early Christmas and Summer orders or you might have your eye on next year.
Yesterday I ran a small workshop for Blunt umbrellas and their hyper talented agency, Motion Sickness.
They’ve got a cool new office. Very nice space and a natural one to get their clients out of their normal environment.
and this is so important.
Getting out of your normal environment.
Getting time and space to think.
Trying to do large scale planning in your office or normal environment is much less effective. Distractions abound and your brain defaults back to its natural thought patterns.
In two weeks I will be doing my own annual review.
Check into a hotel, no email, no phone. Two days of me, my notebook and my thoughts.
It’s a chance to pluck all those ideas and thoughts that stream through my head and organise them and extract value from them.
Some of them I will execute, some of them I give to friends and clients.
As an entrepreneur and business owner your beliefs, energy, ideas and decisions are your businesses biggest assets. Like any other assets you must grow and care for them otherwise they shrink.
Make time to get out or your normal environment and get into your head.
Your business and your mind will reward you for it.
