Can you remember when you first started on your very own business, you couldn’t wait to get up and start the day? It’s great when you’re first starting up, because it feels like nothing is going to stop you, ever. Unfortunately, like most of us, when the novelty of something new fades and the day to day requirements of running a business take over, you can sometimes find yourself in a particular routine that impacts your enthusiasm.
There are areas of the business you absolutely love, but then comes all of the other areas that you need to cover that you’re really not a fan of, marketing, accounting, networking etc.
We often wait, hoping that this boredom is just a quick blip and it will soon pass, but, it doesn’t and it sticks around for as long as you allow it to.
Fortunately, there are ways to help revitalise your business so you’re able to reignite your creativity and grow your business.
One of the most rewarding practices that is really unexpected is meditation.

For those who don’t meditate, they see it as something that people do in their spare time. But what they don’t realise is that meditation is a great mental model and can be improved through practice. What it offers is a way to deal with most situations thrown at you which is why it is a perfect addition to a business owners’ lifestyle.

You need to brighten it up as much as possible to give you and your employees the perfect working environment.

They are described as the analogue method for the digital age. It’s a methodology. You hand-write your notes, your schedules, your grids. You colour coordinate and use symbols to help group your notes. For those who are gifted in illustration, you can make them as beautiful as you like. Or if you’re practical rather than creative, then they are still a fantastic way to collate and sort your notes.
You want to start 2019 off right and the best way to do it is by looking at your content marketing.
