Entrepreneurs will probably have quite mixed feelings about the Easter break. Holidays are always welcome, but losing up to three selling days in a five-day period is not something that sits easy with everyone.
But don’t let these worries spoil your extra long weekend. This is a perfect time to recharge the batteries, reset your goals and priorities and launch into the next part of the year.
So don’t think about work for a good three days.
Relax with your family, re-connect with your friends. Get some exercise, read a book (not your financial books!) and generally enjoy yourself.
This is really important time to let your mind drift to other important things that your all-consuming business doesn’t give you time to think about it.
Next Monday or Tuesday, if you really must, spend an hour or two thinking about how your business has gone in the first four months of the year.
What has worked? What hasn’t? What things haven’t you got around to?
Has your list of goals changed since the start of the year? If so, how do you need to articulate this to your team?
And finally, dedicate some time to your value proposition. Does it still work? Does it need to be refined?
If you don’t get this stuff done over the Easter break, don’t sweat it. It’s a short week next week, so a bit of reflection in what is likely to be a quiet period will be most welcome.
Your most important tasks from me this Easter are easy – relax, recharge and eat lots of chocolate.
Get it done – this weekend!
