Transforming People's Lives

Ask yourself – Is this the right decision?

Have you ever made a decision and then regretted it?

 

Decisions can be catastrophic especially those made in haste, in anger or even to please someone.

 

Nobody likes to make a decision only to realize that they did not have the right information, it was not the right time,  they were rushing or had a lot of other things on their mind. Then you ask yourself : Is this the right decision?

We all have to make decisions every day, in fact every minute or second of the day you are making a decision. These can make you or break you, even affect your whole family and your business or career.

 

Getting help in making decisions is one thing but knowing what to look for is quite another. Wouldn’t you love to know how to make better decisions or decisions that count or even to have a process for decision making?

 

Having and running a business can be overwhelming when there are so many key decisions to make, knowing what to look for and how to go about making your business decisions can be very helpful . We know too well that these decisions could make or break the business. Call us 868 465 0603 or email joseylifeline@gmail.com and let’s talk about this.

Give us a Call  868 465 0603 or email joseylifeline@gmail.com and let’s talk about this.

Monday Morning MEM0 02082121- This Week’s Strategy

This week’s strategy – planning is key.

Most people have a to do list that they tick off as they go along.

 

Today I want to talk to you about planning your time instead of making a to do list. In any case having a to do list you can get frustrated when you are not able to achieve all the tasks recorded on your list.

 

Now, for some people kids are totally on vacation, and if you are running a business this is now a different scenario because they may no longer have planned study time. So now you have to plan your time around them and the business. A to do list would certainly not work in this case.

 

Take it week by week, plan your week. What do you want to accomplish each week?  Then, plan what day of the week you would do your various activities and how long do you need to spend on each activity. Add all that you need to do, plan time for the kids, play time, if you have revision session plan a time for this, grocery time, plan all the activities for your business – client and supplier calls or follow ups, plan marketing time for the business etc. Be specific with each activity, names, phone numbers  etc. as this would ensure that you make effective use of your time.

 

This is also the month where some people are looking at new schools and universities, if this is you, these decisions must be afforded adequate time. Plan a time to research and discuss your options.

 

If you need a strategy for making decisions effectively shoot us an email – joseylifeline@gmail.com. We help you explore your options and break them down to get  the best decision base on the information at hand.  We can also show your older children how to make proper decisions. This is lacking in our world today, and a lot of older children end up making the wrong decisions when they leave school or even in university

Monday Morning MEM0 2607220- This Week’s Strategy

This week’s strategy

 

It is harder to get a new customer than it is to keep one.

 

Must customers  need to know  you, like you and trust you before they do business with you. This can be hard work on your part to woe them to your business. After all that work you would definitely want to keep them.

 

Some business places may be still closed as a result of the pandemic, however instead of complaining, take the time to maintain your customer data base.

 

– A quick call to see how they are going would go a long way with the relationship.

 

– Send them a thank you card. After all they have stayed with you for so long.

 

– Send them a birthday card, or  a card for some other event they may be celebrating. There are so many virtual cards that you can use.

 

– Have a sale just for your customer data base. They would feel very special or go through and see who are your longest customer relationships and send them a card or provide them with a discount.

 

Whatever you do keep in touch with your customers as you would need them when you re-open,

Monday Morning MEM0 1907219- This Week’s Strategy.

 

This week’s strategy – The one thing you must do.

Your industry may be closed, no money coming in, rent has to be paid, other monthly expenses must be paid, relationships not where you want them to be, the job is more stressful, working from home sucks, you can complain about everything but there is one thing that you must do.

 

You see we all want things to go well for us and our families. We all want a thriving business, good relationships at home and on the job. How are all these things going to happen? Business maybe closed now because of the pandemic but what is going to happen when business reopen? Are you going to keep whining and complaining until it is time to open?

 

If you want to get on with anything the one thing you must do is to  take action. Nothing is going to happen unless you do something, that is take action. Your business is not going to make it unless you take some action to get things going. You must review your strategy, your operations, your suppliers. Your relationship is not going to make it unless you take action. Relationships like everything else must be maintained. How are you going to do this? If they are shaky what is your plan to get them back together? The job is not going to get better unless you take action.  Do you need to look for another Job? Do you need to update your skills? What can you do in your present job differently? By now you get the point.

 

How you go about taking action is another story. You can’t just go and start doing things haphazardly.  You have to do some planning. You have to work on each challenge or issue to explore your options and  see what you could do. You have to work the issue – be specific about it, what is happening,  has it happened before? Has this happened to anyone else? Is this a past issue that you are worrying about or is it in  the future? How is it going to affect you?   What are the things in your control? What are the things you do not have control of?  What are the actions you could take to help resolve your challenges? Can you do it alone? Do you need help to explore your options?

 

You know help is always available, however it is where you seek help or who you turn to? We help you explore your options so you could come up with the right direction for you. Whether it is your business, relationship, job, health  we are on it. Look at it this way you won’t know until you try us. Give us a call: joseylifeline@gmail.com

Monday Morning MEM0 1207218- This Week’s Strategy.

This Week’s Strategy

How to decide which direction to take in your business or personal life?

Life could be daunting and at times you could get so overwhelmed with so many things hitting you at the same time, and there appears to be no way out. Well, that is not really true. I heard it said once that there are 500 options to one situation or problem so you could decide which direction to go by exploring an option or two.

 

As nature has it we were made to fight or flight. So either way we have to make a decision on which direction to take. Making rash decisions could sometimes cost you a lot of money and also cause business and personal relationship issues.

 

I found an easy way to decide which direction to go. There is a lot more to this process and if you would like to learn more shoot me an email. – joseylifeline@gmail.com

Here is the process for any decision you have to make:

 

1. Get a sheet of paper and divide into 4  and list the following:

 

2.What is the problem? Be as specific as you can.

 

3.Problems are either past or future . So is it in the past or the future?

 

4.Decide if you can do anything  about the problem – or if there is nothing you can do

 

5. Based on what you wrote in 5 take whatever action deemed necessary.

 

If you need help shoot me an email:joseylifeline@gmail.com

 

Also remember solving problems involve you looking at different examples in the past seeing how others deal with the problem and pulling the pieces together to see if there is anything you can use to solve your problem.

 

It also helps to be focus and practice being present when you are dealing with problems so you can come up with a solution that works for you. If you are not present chances are that you could make a decision that may not be what you are looking for.

Monday Morning MEM0 0507217- Don’t wait.

THIS WEEK’S STRATEGIES – DON’T WAIT.

It is the beginning of a new month and a new quarter.

What do you plan to do to get the month and the quarter going?

In some places business is opening back up, are you going to wait until it is time for you to open?

Surely if you wait you are scheduled for the crumbs,  so don’t wait, you have to make a decision and go for the big goal. Think about three goals for your business this month and this quarter. Write them down, break them down in small activites and work on them daily.

Be sure to get all the distractions out of the way,  don’t wait, these could also be those distractions in your mind – nobody is buying, business is slow, I have no money for supplies as business was not open. Everyone is in the same boat so how am I going to get through.

You have to know that you are capable of great things. We all have the same number of hours in the day and skills we may not have even discovered that we have. Don’t wait by hanging around trying to figure out what to. Sit down and explore all the distractions and negatives and work on them one at a time  and get them out of the way.

Remember to focus. Focus on what is really important and urgent and what would drive the results you are looking for.

Monday Morning MEM0 2806216- THIS WEEK’S STRATEGIES

ACTIVITIES

This week we are looking at the impact of the activities that you are involved in on a daily basis on your business.

If you want your business to prosper you must consider the activities of each day in your business as a series of ongoing opportunities. There are so many activities that you could focus on, e.g:

  • Which client do you need to call?
  • Which supplier do you need to contact?
  • Which client could get you a referral?
  • Which contact do you know could get you the name of a supplier?
  • Which media platform to use or Marketing?

There are many daily  activities that convert into opportunities for growth in your business.

The amount of your profits or what you are making  from your business is a direct result of the effort you are putting out into each activity in the business. This means that doing the right things the right way and for the right reason in your business is your ticket to a successful business and better life.

Sometimes trying to find which activities to generate growth or convert into opportunities for growth could be daunting. If you require help with this – email: joipfassociates@gmail.co

Monday Morning MEM0 2106215- THIS WEEK’S STRATEGIES

“Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” — Bruce Lee

 

When you know what you have to do that is fine, but knowing is just not enough, you have to take action. Rudyard Kipling once said…”Knowledge is knowing. Wisdom is doing.”

 

You can have all the knowledge, read all the books, attend all the seminars and workshops but unless you put that knowledge to action nothing happens. When you take action it tells people who you are and what type of person you are, if they could do business with you.

It is like saying I want to lose weight, you sign up in a class or purchase all the products but you never attend the class or weeks have passed by and the products are still on the counter top.

 

In your business you may say I need more clients, but time keeps passing by and no clients because you have signed up for several courses and workshops on ‘ How to get more clients’ but no action has been taken. What are you waiting for?

I challenge you today to take action on something you have had on the back burner for a while:

  • Call that client.
  • Call that supplier.
  • Put some strategies in place to get more clients.
  • Call that person that you have been wanting to call for so long.
  • Review your financial information for your company and develop and action plan to improve your bottom line.
  • Review your operations and see where you could improve.

 

Whatever you do take action, remember “Wisdom is doing’.

Monday Morning MEM0 1406214- THIS WEEK’S STRATEGIES

Working from home and having challenges with distractions?

Working form home could be a daunting task especially with children and other members of the family being around all the time. Imagine you are on Zoom and your little son wants to play and does not understand that you are not available. What about an employe or client trying to get your attention.

In order to be productive and also strive for that work home balance we have to find some way to deal with this without causing any relationship conflict. So here are some simple ways you can try:

  • Find something that you can wear – a hat, a crown etc.  to signal to your children or family that you cannot be disturbed at this  time. For example when you have butterflies or a crown on your head you are no tone disturbed.
  • .
  • Let your family know before hand that during this certain period of time you cannot the disturbed unless it is urgent – life and death issue.
  • Have a message on your phone to say that you are not available at this time but if it is urgent they can you send you a message.

Have a great week.

Monday Morning MEM0 070631- THIS WEEK’S STRATEGIES

FEAR

Have you been so afraid lately that you are not keeping an eye on your business, because you are afraid to see how it is gradually diminishing . Things just not going the right way. Sales are down, clients are not able t0 purchase or pay as before. One of the worst things we could allow into our mind is fear. This is a silent killer of your dreams, your business, everything you ever hoped for.  Fear can even ruin your family life and your business relationships.

You have to remember why you went into this business in the first place. What were you looking to achieve?  As most people say what is your big “WHY”?

You have to know that Life has prepared you for this. You must be flexible and always willing to adapt. SO this did not work or this strategy is not working, resist the temptation to overreact or start feeling sorry for your self. Being faced with all your challenges focus on your strengths, what can you do now. We all need some pruning at times, and this also applies to our business.  You may be also tempted to compare yourself to  someone else in the same line of business. Resist this temptation to compare. Stay away from judgmental and negative persons. Know who you are and what you can do. Be committed to your life experiences and give this your full attention.

There is courage and purpose every time you take  a breath. See yourself as perfect peace and joy. Have confidence in yourself. You also have all the wisdom you need so tackle your challenges with peace, love and joy. So get clear about what you need to do for the business and go for it.

It helps to have someone  like a Coach who you can speak with about your challenges, and who could help you explore options to solving your challenges. Sometimes all you need is someone to listen that helping hand. Ask us about this if you are interested.

There are always options. In case you are looking for an easy way to purchase online take a look or register here: Purchase online
