We don’t get much time, do we? What’s worse is that over our lives we tend to collect activities, people and things that call on our time. It is almost as if we are puppets being pulled in this and that direction by outside forces with little control over our time. This simply builds day after day, almost without us noticing until one morning we wake up living a life we had never intended.
Well if you are a busy family business owner it probably does. The business is supposed to serve the family but it often ends up the other way around. Go easy on yourself! You’re not alone and you can do something about it.
My name is Tom O’Leary and I’m The Moment Maverick. I’m passionate about helping busy family business owners take back control of their time.
I’ve been involved in family businesses for over 20 years so I’ve been there. If you are juggling work, family, other responsibilities and duties plus ‘me time’ and coming up short you may feel as if the clock is always against you. The business often creeps out of the “boardroom” and into the “bedroom”. At times it can be hard to know if the family is running the business or the business is running the family.
It isn’t simply about prioritising, setting mini goals, becoming more productive, charging more, learning to say no or indeed just slowing down to create space to STOP (Sit, Think, Observe, Plan). We can get to all that.
What is even more critical, however, is delving into your relationship with time and setting clear aspirations for every aspect of your life. That goes hand-in-hand with balancing your needs and the needs of the business today with preparing for the future you have imagined.
