If you want to thrive, it's time to get organized!
Organizing anything in our lives is one of those things that many of us avoid or put off for another day. We know we need to do it, but something stops us. See if any of these popular reasons ring true for you:
And while these excuses (sorry ... "reasons") might be OK for your sock drawer, they're not OK for your business.
Because being disorganized is costing you precious time and money ... and might even be jeopardizing your chance for success! A recent study found ...
53% of thriving/surviving small business owners describe their workplace as very organized, while only 23% of struggling/failing small business owners say the same.
Whoa! Which side of that stat do you want to be on?
It's simple: to maximize our potential and focus on achieving our goals, we need to invest time in organizing our resources. The best thing is, this investment pays dividends!
Focus your time doing what you do best.
Let's say you want to email a potential client a link to your recent blog post; or you want to pop a link to your latest offering into your Instagram profile; or maybe you want to embed that video you did a couple of weeks ago into your newsletter. What do you do?
Chances are, it goes something like this:
Step 1: You open a new tab in your browser.
Step 2: You head over to your website, hopefully via a shortcut.
Step 3A: You navigate to the page where the thing you're looking for is posted (after remembering, of course, where it's posted otherwise ...
Step 3B: You search for the thing you're looking for (remembering, of course, the exact keyword you used in the title)
Step 4: You find and verify this is it.
Step 5: You highlight the URL in the address bar and copy it.
Step 6: You navigate to the email where you want to paste the link and paste the link.
