Collaboration is working with others to achieve your goals. It means that we can expand, think bigger and achieve more.
As small business owners, we are often encouraged to niche and specialise but that can make it hard to take work of a wider scope. Collaborating, therefore, can mean being more agile, taking on bigger projects, reaching a wider audience and involving experts that specialise in different aspects of a job.
I realised that I regularly spend many hours a day sat at my computer, often for several hours at a time and I know it’s not good for me. I have tension in my neck and shoulders and live in fear of developing a profile like the hunchback of Notre Dame. So, I have (ahem) taken a stand.
There are things we would all like to defer and sometimes the strict regime of do it, delegate it, or ditch it just doesn’t cut it! But procrastination can mean always having something from that to-do list hanging over us.
Time is money and so we strive for efficiency: we want to do the best job to accomplish success with the least amount of time and effort. The key to being efficient is knowing what you want to achieve.
