Yet again I find myself in conversation with busy people who are at the beck and call of everyone and anyone and never seem to have enough time in their day.
STOP! It doesn't have to be that way.
If you want to have better control of your business, then you need to be in control of your time. That means you need to decide what you're going to do and when you're going to do it.
If you have people knocking on your door, phoning you up, making demands on you at any time of the day and night then you may need to create better (or some) boundaries around your time.
Many people are afraid of saying no to clients, customers and potential business but just because you say 'no', doesn't mean never, it just means 'not right now'.
If you set good boundaries, other people will respect your time and you'll be able to address their requests better. You'll also have more time for your clients and customers because you'll be in control.
