Just as the first rays of sunshine begin to stream through your window, your alarm begins to sound in its typically irritating fashion. After forcing yourself to crawl out of bed, you begin your morning routine as you get ready for work. You leave your home, battle the peak hour traffic and use all your might to push through the daily grind of work. Only after arriving home, preparing dinner and doing your chores do you finally get a chance to relax, head off to bed and get ready to repeat the same thing over again the very next day.
This is the reality of a standard working day for many business owners across the country. With so much time devoted to fulfilling both professional and personal duties, it can be quite easy to lose track of the big picture.
Do you work to live or do you live to work?
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with having a daily routine, there is one simple rule that should always be followed; your routine must be guided by a set of goals which clearly state what you hope to achieve in your life, both short term and long term.
Failure to set goals in your life means that you are putting yourself in a position where you are forced to go through the motions and subsequently neglect your potential, both professionally and personally.
Motivational speaker and bestselling author Stephen Covey summed up this problem perfectly when he stated that going through the motions ‘may empower other people and circumstances to shape you and your life by default’. When you stop to think about it, it’s amazing how right Covey really was.
