How many times have you heard ‘ I need to work on my business and its growth, not just next month, but for the next two years’. This is something that small businesses in particular have a issue with; planning for the future growth of their business.
It needs time, and space, to really think clearly about what you want to achieve. Something that I thinks works well is to take yourself out of the normal office environment and go to a place that gives you the feeling of ‘space’. Somewhere that allows your mind to wander, away from the routine of day to day operations. (It will go back to ‘operational’ occasionally, but that’s ok so long as it doesn’t dominate).
If you take a colleague or team with you, that can give the opportunity to ‘play’ with thoughts and ideas. Whatever you do and whether you’re on your own or with others, if you find the right space, it will give you the time to plan for the future growth of the business……..and you might also enjoy the view!
