Are You Working Hard or Working Right

Having grown up on a 75 acre farm, nobody ever talked about working right.  Everybody talked about working hard. As you can imagine, we worked hard on the farm. We got up early, and with 75 acres there are a lot of things that have to be done – most if it having to do with chickens, pigs, cows, and horses, gardens and fields. Growing up on a farm, was a great way to grow up, it was a great life, and a lot of fun.

Here’s the thing, working hard doesn’t always get you where you want to go. The other thing we all is hear is that you have to work smart.

What does that even mean, to work smart?

It’s not about working smart and it’s not about working hard. It’s about working right – doing the right things at the right times. It’s about having the right marketing processes and the right systems in your business.  Working right, doesn’t mean you’re not going to work hard sometimes. We all work hard sometimes…we’re business owners and entrepreneurs, so it just comes as part of the territory…as part of the deal.

If you love what you do, it’s not really work right? But you still want to work right.

Do the right things at the right times and the sky is the limit for you and your business.

You’re running your own business, you’re not an employee, you’re running your own business. And when you think about it from that perspective, if you’re working right, and all of your employees, your vendors, your team members, or whoever you have, are working right, then productivity is going to go way, way up. This means more profits, more money, more free time, and more contribution…all the reasons you went into business for yourself in the first place.

So, stop working hard, don’t think about working smart, just work right.
