This weekend is “Labor Day.” Traditionally this weekend marks the end of summer. Children head back to school. Businesses begin to work out the summer blues, vacations, and other distractions. They get ready for the next 3 plus months of work until the end of the calendar year.
This weekend is also a time to reflect on the “Labor” of love that each and everyday you awake to partake in because it fulfills some part of who you are. Each day you invest time, energy, emotion and other resources into the business.
For some, the business is who and all they are. For others, it is just the expression of their talents. Regardless of which applies to you, this weekend is about reflecting on the contribution through using your talents to build something greater. To take the God-given talents and through your own free will to apply them in such a way that others can, directly and indirectly, benefit from your business.
So take a few minutes this week and reflect on your business as it is today. Reflect on the past so you can learn from both the good and bad which you have navigated. Look to the future so you can plan positive strategies which take you and your organization to the next level of results.
As you begin this reflection, capture your thoughts in a journal so you can use them as you begin your next year of business planning.
