On Tuesday this week, I posted a blog entry that explained to improve business, you have to take tough steps sometimes.  Pulling people through these tough decisions is a part and parcel of business coaching.

Since then, that entry has received quite a few comments, but I’ve also received calls from several clients and emails from other readers telling me that they had decided to stop procrastinating and take that tough action this week.

To their great relief, they found that putting the tough things behind them gave them more energy, more motivation and took away a load of stress too.

So, what’s the next thing on your list to get done, so that you can enjoy less stress and a better business?

Here’s an idea for you – how about getting into online networking – or social media as the Internet Marketing crowd are calling it?  It works, it’s simple enough to do and it’s fun.

I came across a great blog entry about not getting overwhelmed by all the choices, but just picking one and going with it, by Marie at the Training Marketer blog.  There’s a really neat video explaining why online networking and social media is so powerful for us as small businesses.  I’d love to be able to do a video as cool as that!

    Hi Lee, thanks for the mention!

    Staying focused is more important than ever these days, especially when it comes to online networking and social media. It’s easy to get burnt out with all the options out there, but if you keep it simple you can really get things done.

    Hi Marie,

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Yes, focus is absolutely key to consistent performance and success. I find that online social media is also easy to dismiss as being “less important” than offline activities – a mistake, I know, but one I’m guilty of from time to time.

    Cheers,

    Lee
