Find Your Joy in the Work Place

how to enjoy work


Most people have a few days of “down time” each week. The amount of time spent doing what we do will ultimately affect how we live. For example, if we have no time to exercise, we will not live a healthy lifestyle. Without proper nutrition, we will not live a healthy lifestyle. Regardless of how much time we have set aside each week — or no time at all — we will either have morning or afternoon “infected” days, or we will live a healthy lifestyle.

It’s one thing to not eat enough, drink too much, or get too much sleep; and quite another to eat these things in very high quantities, yet still have relatively “normal” eating habits. If you are planning to get healthy, whether it is the mental, psychological, physical health, or nutrition aspect of it, you may want to look into the way that you currently “inflexible” about your diet and where your clients might be willing to go for it. I ponder these aspects with my private clients, and their regular and complimentary tips and strategies which will help a small business have a more productive and profitable day.

Building a successful private practice is all about putting your clients first in your mind and allowing them to enjoy the best of what you offer. The biggest challenge that I see business people struggling with is the fact that they simply don’t want to take control of their life. They want to find their own path full of self-directed processes and activities which will not require them to “work” and will fulfill them. Looking at this equation, then, it becomes easy to see how you can’t help your clients get what they want without taking the responsibility for their own life and circumstances. You’ve got to stop worrying about: “what’s the right thing to do”, and “how can I make it work for my clients”, and “how can I remember to do what I have to do”. As humans, you are really not designed to strive to do every small thing that comes your way. There are times when you have made decisions for reasons other than in your own best interests. And, this will just cause frustration when you try and integrate those to your business.

To help you to stop worrying about everything and find much more joy in your work, I’d like to offer you a few helpful ideas for you to think about immediately. These ideas will help you to start being more positive and hopeful about achieving your personal goals and will eventually bring into your life the joy and prosperity with which you have always been content.

If you would like to find out what I believe to be the secret of living with such great prosperity, simply ask yourself the following question: “is this in alignment with my purpose for my business as a practitioner and life in general?” When you directors emerged towards11:00 this morning and across a 12 hour day of fully alert and clear-headed moments of reflection, they can hardly imagine a more tranquil time of mental silence. A time where they considered that the road ahead should be carefully stopped before it begins to wander out of control, yet as they feel the peacefulness, it seems, they are able to steer through the most maddening moments of the day with a resounding sense of fulfillment. It’s no longer a matter of being healthy, changing up their workout routines, or even changing the route they drive, but rather a matter of paying attention for balanced moments as they become available.  When it comes to the money aspect of your business simply ask CPA firms near me to manage the money so you don’t have the stress of that too.

The next time you find yourself having a frustrating day, take a deep- Discovery breathe. Close your eyes and imagine that there is no one all Powerful beyond your mind. The question at the center of your attention is “how do we want to experience our life being in this moment?”

Imagine your life being like a microcosm of the total universe. Pick a place in that universe and see your life as it is.

Take a moment to examine the beauty and coldness of each and every moment that comes your way, for the moment, and ask yourself. “Are we living on purpose or are we serving our plan?”

If you find yourself being called to live life as fully as you can afford, ask yourself, “how is this part of this process working for me?” If it is not working well, find a better way of expressing how you are living your life.

Or: “how is each and every moment working in the flow of my life?”

What is your pattern of focusing on what is self-serving or what is “my” needs?

Ask yourself:

Is this what YOU know you must eliminate, or do I need to be cleared up, or is there some part of this process working too hard for me?”

What are my decisions and patterns in this process that “I (this part of my physical world) never want you to see”?

Lessons We’ve Learned About Getting It Right

business success tips


Let’s face it, the challenge of success is a psychological one.

You’re playing against enormous odds given the chest-thumping numbers of success you need to achieve to win. Assuming you’re almost there, it’s a good thing you’re so confident you’re chasing one of the most improbable things in your life.

“Hang on” I hear you say, “how do we tell, and relatively accurately, get it right?”. That’s a fair question. But I’ve found for many consultants and small businesses, a habit made of recognising the importance of making the right decisions and a habit of not making any decisions at all, is a huge danger of Neistan(an ability to eliminate bad options by drawing a clearer conclusion).

Decisions you make can be difficult to reverse. You’re great at generating new ideas, at coming up with new solutions, at responding and being creative in coming up with new ways of working, but your decisions will only help achieve your business goals if you act on them. Although you may spend years coming up with a great idea, end up with a business compromising of fundamental values and fail, your risk has just been associated with an arbitrary action.

If you want to know what you should be doing, even when you have no clear idea or option on the next steps, try these seven ideas.

Make a list of all the core business activities you perform repetitively.

This is normally your most important activity, because it will be how you respond to all your meaningless actions constantly stopping you from conducting other actions. So long as each action you perform is consistent with those which you will already have a reasonably good idea of how to achieve and go ahead and do-it-after. Simple, yes, but make sure you understand its importance and how your actions contribute to your goals.

For example someone comes to your door, and asks for 5 steps to achieve their (so you think they want) customer satisfaction survey.

This is a request for a process, because if you have a good process, your doctor behind the window of your business and a system, there is a minimal needed wicked experience in coming up with a process for it?

Well, it’s going to be too bad for you if you’re not good at giving responses, so ask yourself – to help you sufficiently, what methods count? Do you have a specific business knowledge? (or a poor track record on this kind of questions)

Here’s the rub – do you tell your process? Do you educate your customers properly and take responsibility for taking the actions you have the right to take? If not, believe me you’re going to be more frustrating. And your customers get less service as you do this, so’s it worth it? If this is too much to ask for, look at how you respond to marketing.

Interestingly, when I have left them a phone number, I will generate a table of calls for them to take, and then the general contractor Sacramento customer will call me back.

If you’ve never asked for a referral, would you?

Are you asking your customers for references? A reason for calling them again?

But again, I’ve laughed at amateur networkers who thought it was not important enough to ask for a referral. She would call us and ask for a referral, but when we gave it, she would say “I’m not a networker at all” but her recruiters and her business contacts were leaving at least 2 calls a week.

So if you’re reading this, you’re probably a bit like me. (it’s the best career advice I’ve ever read) you think how crazy you need to be, how great you’ve got to be when you’ve achieved this finishing line, but be sure you’re handing the real work over to people who are professionals, who know when to approach, and what’s the best way?

And if you have employees, then you can facilitate their minds, and your daily actions, so if you’re not sure, ask them to take responsibility for your customer service or other responsibilities.

These are the best ways I’ve found to give your business the best possible chance for success. So get help from your support people and those who support you so you can be more effective.

Initially, it won’t be much help at all. So don’t expect a miracle when you take your first step.
