One Day At A Time

May 12, 2009

As women entrepreneurs we work relentlessly 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to make our businesses successful. Sometimes we push ourselves beyond reasonable limits in a frenzy pace trying to sell more, market more, and  produce more. Especially in today’s times when it seems like the economic road ahead looks bleak, we work even harder. Sometimes when we feel like we are in the midst of a difficult stretch we look ahead instead of concentrating on what we can do in this moment, this hour and today to help our businesses remain successful.

There are times in life and in business when the stretch ahead doesn’t look good. But having a day-at-a-time attitude can help us focus on making this one day successful. Taking business one day at a time can be useful when the future feels uncertain. When we don’t know where to start with some challenges, we must remember how essential it is to take one day at a time. Sometimes it is helpful to take one hour at a time or one task at a time to gain a sense of control.

Ultimately we control how we think and feel every day. We have limited control on the changes in economic times. We do have control on how we feel about the uncertainity and the action we take to work towards a brighter day. If you’re feeling like your future is unpredictable, concentrate on the tasks at hand, accomplish what you can, and reward yourself at the end of the day.  Remember we only have one day at a time, sometimes in business reminding ourselves of this can make today really productive.
