|Yesterday after a big walk around the mountains outside our house taking in all of the gorgeous nature in sight, we spent time on our vegetable patch, getting it ready to sow our seeds and seedlings. Here in the Northern hemisphere, we’re definitely approaching spring now, that time of the year where we’re making way for the new and laying the foundations for growth.|
It got me thinking of how for some of us, our businesses are also likely to be in a similar season. For those of you who feel like your business is at a standstill or even a bit stagnant, maybe now is the time to have a good old spring clean, to start sowing new seeds within your business and preparing your foundations for all the new growth that is on its way.
We spent two hours on our veg patch yesterday. Two back-breaking hours of weeding, making raised beds, clearing wild spaces, burning the debris, and getting the patch in order. It wasn’t fun, and only now that I look out the window I can appreciate what we did. And this is so true with the seeds that you’ll be sowing for your business too.
Sowing seeds can be boring, hardwork and feel unproductive and unnecessary but, give it a few months, and you’ll start to see the first signs of all that work coming into fruition. It’s such a good reminder that the magic doesn’t happen instantly, with nature or with business.
What can you be doing right now to give your business a bit of a spring clean? How can you start to sow business seeds now that with time and patience will start to flourish?
Here are a few suggestions:
