Kaboom - or why planning is important

2017-01-11 04:16:16

For people being self-employed or simply running your own business, whatever size the business happens to be, planning your work gets to be an important everyday task. And I know what I am talking about.

If you are working for someone else, you always or at least most of the time know what you need to do. You boss simply tells you that. And if you don't get it done, chances are that sooner or later you'll be fired.

However, if you're working for yourself, noone will fire you, but you might be helping yourself closer to bankruptcy. Being your own boss allows you to work or not to work and that's the positive side of it. You often actually can afford, time-wise at least, not to work for two weeks, should you decide so tomorrow. And it's really all good.

Don't let this two weeks transform into two months. That might start causing you problems.

And what more, usually when working for yourself you often have a multitude of choices what to do today (if you decide to do anything at all, that is), so at the end of the day you might actually realise that because you were always thinking what you should be starting with, you didn't start with anything and now you need to start all over tomorrow. Chances are, with the same progress report.

And that's why you need to make plans, if not for a longer term, then at least for tomorrow. Great punch line, ain't it?
