The month of May really starts to split the really committed fitness fundies from the rest. Early mornings are now dark and a little chilly. The weather seems to be a great motivator to hit the snooze button instead of getting up and getting active.
At the back of our minds we still remember the articles last year saying a beach body is built in the winter, but … December is really far away and it’s just so much easier to lie in a little longer. Remaining fit and healthy now, really starts to test our discipline and it’s here where we start to split the men from the boys (or the formidable women from the girls).
Your business is no different. It too goes through seasons. To ensure the fruits of your labour, you now need to push through the darker times. Business was never supposed to be easy and despite the fact that we love the fantasy of entrepreneurs like Sir Richard Branson, we often forget the ‘25 year overnight success’ it took to get them there.
So what lessons can we learn from health and fitness that we can use in our business as well?
