If you had a mother like mine you will probably have heard this saying,

“If you Fail to prepare, Prepare to Fail”

For the sometime now I’ve been struggling getting back into a routine with managing …..
well…… managing my LIFE.
And we all go through those moments.
Kids get sick
Then you get sick
Then the house turns upside down
Then friends and family visit from abroad
And the list can just go on and on……
And this usually happens just after you got yourself into a nice groove.
Things were going smoothly in your business
Sales were coming in ….
You were following up with people……
Then life throws you a ball
Well one thing that I’ve always noticed is that you can always plan and prepare.
Even when life throws something at you.
This week I took some time to plan little things at home as I explain in  my short video below.

Like meals for the week,
Lunch boxes
And the same 24 hour day that seemed too little
Now seems to have 48 hours in it
All because I sat down and planned a few things in my life.
Now I know you’re probably wondering what this has to do with your business.
Well you have to remember that YOU are your business.
YOU are a husband,
YOU are a wife
YOU are a mother
YOU are a father
YOU are a daughter or son
Your life isn’t just about your business.
Your life is about everything that you have to manage in order to work your business and then get back to your life.
Sometimes we can lose track of that.
So my words of advice for you today are
To take stock of your life.
Plan things out properly even if you think you don’t have the time.
Remember what I talked about in my blog yesterday.
Think of time as units – blocks – if 15 mins is too small a block for you – then do 30 mins .
