A Change of Focus Offers a Whole New View and a New Attitude
As business owners and managers, we tend to be critical and maybe even over-analyze the things we did and didn’t do during the week. We focus on how to squeeze a few extra minutes into our days so that we can accomplish more. Thinking about what is left to be done and how quickly time goes by increases the stress factor and actually reduces your productivity.

Instead of standing at the bottom of the mountain, always looking at the top, take a moment to reflect on how far you have come so far. That is what Vanessa Merit Nornberg suggested in “Keep Up the Self-Scrutiny—or Try This,” posted on After attending a leadership workshop that included listing her accomplishments, Nornberg was surprised at her long list of successes. After reflecting on each major milestone of her business, she felt a newfound energy and drive for her business mission and purpose.

Business owners and managers will always have challenges to face, projects to tackle, and mountains to climb. Instead of lamenting on how long the journey is taking, take stock on how far you’ve come already. Be proud of your accomplishments and use that energy to take you to greater heights. We are grateful to be a part of your journey and support your mission through our innovative business management technology.
