Mind Your Business

MYOB. Mind Your Own Business. These words can be an admonition to keep your opinions to yourself or you can take them at face value: Mind. Your. Own. Business.

Are you minding your business? As an entrepreneurial guru and the author of the E-Myth series Michael Gerber espouses, you can get so wrapped up with working in your business that you forget to work on your business.

Success is a mindset. To succeed, you have to be in the right mind. And that mind needs to be focused on the big picture of your business success. Look down the road. Where do you want to lead your company and its employees? What does your vision look like? Now, break it down and ask yourself what you need to do in order to navigate your business to reach that spot on the horizon. Create the plan to achieve your goals. Read books with ideas, strategy, and motivation. Take a class to expand your skills and knowledge. Stay focused. Ignore the bright, shiny objects that twinkle and shine. They are mere distractions that guide you farther away from your achievements. Stop looking back at what has happened and look ahead at what can be.

When your mind improves, your business will undoubtedly follow suit. Use "MYOB" as a constant reminder to stay focused on your goals.
