Edmonton Business Coach | Working Hard Is Working Smart
We’ve all heard that you have to work smarter not harder, but the Edmonton business coach has another thought about that. When you are starting a new business, you have to work hard in order to make it work for you.
Yes, you must be smart about what you’re doing, but it’s going to be hard work regardless of what kind of business you’re in. Unless you been operating your business for several years you don’t have the team or the systems in place to work a four-hour work week.
One way to work smart while working hard is by batching all the work that you’re doing. When you have a small business, you have to find ways to maximize your time spent on a task. The best way to do this is fine things that can be done in multiples and batch them altogether at one time.
As an Edmonton business coach, this is something we encourage all of our small business clients to do. As an example, we create video articles and spoken articles in batches. It saves time and you can get a lot done in a short period of time.
You should also schedule in the time when you’re batching these projects. By having a rigid and repeatable work schedule it helps you keep focused and replicate tasks on a weekly basis. This takes the mystery out of what you’re supposed to be doing at any given moment of your week. A lot of people are under the misconception that they can work for hours a week and become successful.
This is unfortunately, not true. Especially when starting a new business, you have to work probably 80 hours a week in order to create sustainable business. If you’re passionate about what you’re doing this isn’t a hard thing to do. Who it is hard, on is your family.
By having a rigid work schedule your family can plan around your work hours and schedule meaningful time off with you. Taking the day off to watch Netflix or play video games is not inefficient use of your time. That is not going to get you closer to your financial goals, and it will not enrich your life or make you feel better about yourself.
When you have meaningful time off with people that you really care about they will understand why you’re putting in such long hours and sacrificing so much time on your business.
When you are with your family your Edmonton business coach suggests that you unplug from your smart phone. It’s too easy to be distracted by push notifications emails from work. You need to cut off any ties to business communication when you are doing things with your family or friends.
You gotta decide what things you are willing to give up in order to achieve success that you desire. It’s not enough to work yourself to the bone and ignore your family in the process. You have to be present with them and not always working.

When we are at home with our families that is the time when we must be unplugged from technology. This is the time when you can build though strong family ties while building an incredible business.
A lot of small business owners are under the misconception that they can work less when they start a new business. The reality is that they will be working between 60 and 80 hours a week on a weekly basis for many years. The only way that you’re going to make family bonds stronger is by scheduling time with them that is meaningful.
The best way to do this is by having a rigid repeatable weekly schedule. Schedule the times when you are batching work together in your business. Schedule times when you are with your family doing fun things or just spending meaningful time with them.
