This has been one of those weeks where there are far more things to do than the time to do them in. Even with the use of some great Virtual Assistants (which we now offer) there can be just too much to do.
If you are running any kind of business that is moving forward, you are going to have things thrown at you faster than it you have hands to catch them. It is OK! Sometimes you will end up with a big pile of stuff around your feet.
If you are growing your business, this is normal and if it does not happen once in awhile then I would start getting very nervous because that means you are not pushing the envelope enough.
If you don’t screw up once in every so often then that means your are not pushing hard enough. While some may say that this is a good thing, here is why I say it is the exact opposite in a big, big way.
If you are not pushing hard enough or trying enough new things to make your business grow that you are not making any mistakes, you will never learn what does not work and what really does and …. you can bet that somewhere out there your competition is pushing the envelope and is going to clean your clock. It is not an if, but a when.
People that are not doing anything never feel like they are overwhelmed. Now this is not to say that you wan to feel like this constantly, but a couple of day or even a few weeks is OK and actually good for you.
So keep this in mind when the proverbial shit is hitting the fan and everyone is looking to your for answers to solve everything. This indeed is a good thing.
PS It is however OK to bring an umbrella and wear appropriate clothing when you see a storm approaches. And remember, “Where There Is Chaos, There Is Opportunity”….
