It’s Friday! A time when most of us are tired and ready for the weekend to begin. I am certainly no exception. As a business owner, it’s important to not only start but finish strong. Tie up loose ends, determine what didn’t get done, complete any projects that need completing. You know the drill. 

Today, I got up 30 minutes earlier at 4:00am because I had an early morning Leadership Business Council breakfast with networking that I needed to arrive at between 7:00am and 7:30am. Before I started to get ready for that, I read 10 pages of The E-Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber, wrote down 10 items I’m grateful for and wrote out goals for today, this month and year. Bandit and I went for a 45-minute walk and then I came back to feed five of the six animals, eat my own breakfast and get ready. I was out the door by 6:50am. Sounds exhausting, right? 

It’s all part of my routine and I find when I alter the routine, my day doesn’t go nearly as well. Even though I had to slightly adjust to 30-minutes earlier, I was able to get everything completed and up to the breakfast by 7:20am. 

If tomorrow starts your weekend, I challenge you to finish strong today and stay focused! Look at what’s left and finish those items up. Review what you accomplished and what didn’t quite happen and make sure it’s on your next week’s schedule ready to go. Have a fabulous weekend – relax, refresh and come back even stronger on Monday!
