Do you know the heartbeat of your business at any given time? You might even wonder sometimes, does my business even have a pulse?
Much like your heart emits a pulse every minute of every day for your lifetime so does the heart of your business. It’s universal.
Getting to know and understand your business’ pulse is instrumental to being able to grow, rely on, and steer your efforts so you create the experience and results you want.
This is not a 911 call to see if your business has a pulse and can be saved (although it can work for that too). This is actually about maximizing what your business can do for you.
When an athlete trains for optimal efficiency and fitness, she gets to know her heart rate intimately. What is the resting heart rate? What is the maximum? Where is that range of peak efficiency? What is possible when you push the edges of high heart rate efforts?
This is no means about “getting by” or rescuing the sick. This is about peak performance, making wise decisions, and getting results. It is also about creating an intimate relationship with your body, and in this case the body, mind, and spirit of your business.
When you get to know your business in this way, much like the athlete you can:
- Push the boundaries of what you thought was possible to be of even greater service and create better profitability.
- Know when it is time to sink into the natural cycle of rest.
- Identify when you need to put forth more energy and resources and when it is best to conserve.
I know when I started training for bike rides this way suddenly I could do more and feel uplifted at the end of a long ride (instead of wrecked and ready to crash). I enjoy the journey more, go further, and ride stronger.
What I found when I replicated this process for my business was that I created more efficiency, ease, and profitability simply by following guidelines that indicate the wellness of my business at any given point in time.
When you know what’s what in your business you can make more effective decisions around:
- Expanding to new locations.
- Adding team members or staff.
- What actions to be taking (and which to stop).
- What services to offer and how to price them for profitability.
- How to do things more efficiently and in less time.
And, because a healthy you with a satisfying personal life makes a healthier business, you get to finally take the time off to enjoy and disconnect that you’ve been yearning for.
All because you took just a few short minutes to take the pulse of your business.
