Is Patience Really Useful?
Many business owners groan when they hear the word patience. It’s so hard to be patient when there’s a lot to get done and pressure to grow as fast as possible. So where does patience come in? When is it useful and when is it unnecessary?
Who’s the Source in Your Business?
In every business and project there’s one person who’s the source or original creator, according to Peter Koenig, who’s been researching this topic for many years. When you understand the role of the source, whether it’s you or someone else, it’s much easier to create harmonious relationships and avoid conflict and misunderstandings. Here’s an article that articulates the concept of source particularly well: http://bit.ly/roleofsource
Comparing Yourself With Others
It’s hard not to compare yourself with other business owners. Maybe they get better results than you. Maybe life seems easier for them. Maybe their business is growing faster than yours. But these kinds of comparisons get in the way of growing your business in your unique way, which will never be the same as anyone else. So how can you deal with the tendency to compare in a way that is more valuable for you and your business?
Business in a New Paradigm
In a world that’s demanding a more conscious and responsible approach to business, how do we bring our different disciplines and expertise to the same table? How do we combine the linear with a more holistic approach? Who’s responsible for the wider purpose and impact of the business? And how do we manage so many different responsibilities without going completely crazy?
Mastering your inner world
If you could look inside most business owners’ minds you’d find a lot of thoughts. You’d probably find plenty of stress, worry and anticipation of the future. There’d be analysis of what’s happened in the past, scenario planning and a series of what-ifs. Add into that thoughts about the family, the state of the world and other stuff and you have a mental cocktail that might just drive anyone crazy. So what can you do if you really want to be quiet in your mind?
Starters and finishers
Some business owners are very good at starting things but struggle to complete them. Others are better at finishing projects but find it very challenging to get started. How can we work with our personal strengths and weaknesses and the strengths in our team so we can make a great business?
