On Weekends, The Field Is Yours
One big challenge when starting up is feeling like the small guy. Bigger companies, and more established competitors seem to have all of the advantages. One major way to even the playing field and play catch up is to be on the field when everyone else goes home.
It’s Friday and the weekend is here. Most of the people working for your larger competitors are watching the clock getting ready for the end of the week. If you look at Friday as the beginning of the game, instead of the end, it’s like being a baseball team with two extra innings to yourself.
When the weekend comes, use that time to catch up on things clients need and you didn’t get to do. Get serious about developing your social media accounts. Use the time to send out a bunch of DMs or emails to prospects. Start to build relationships by finding out what you can do for them.
Remember, this is supposed to be fun. This is the stuff that you want to be doing. If you’re telling yourself that you want to build your business, or be a personal brand, and hate the idea of actually doing it on a Saturday morning when most people are asleep, you’re fooling yourself.
Everyone has the same amount of time. There are seven days a week, and everyone gets the same numbers of minutes in each one. If you’re unhappy in your job, or your business isn’t going anywhere, you get those two extra days every single week to change it.
Monday Is The Middle Of The Week
Lose the mindset that Monday is the start of the week. Make Friday the start of your week, play those extra innings, get ahead of the game. When Monday comes, it’s already day four. You’re already making things happen, and you’re excited about what comes next.
