Maybe fuel to you is better planning. Maybe fuel to you is a better organization. Maybe fuel to you means you will achieve bigger goals.
Whether it is a better plan or a plan to have a better organization, or the process of organizing bigger goals… it all starts with YOU! As a small business owner you have to continue to balance your fuel levels, which consist of action plans and implementation of those plans!
How can you be a better planner?
Break projects and tasks into a realistic time line. It becomes increasingly difficult to stay on task when you do not have the road map to reference when you get off-track. If you have a plan for the day, make one for the week, and then one for the month and then turn your monthly plans into a yearly plan, and then before you know it you are forward-thinking about the direction of your business.
What does it take to build and sustain a better organization?
Although, it may seem pretty straight forward building and sustaining a business means that you have to constantly grow your business through marketing ventures, fix the areas that need to be repaired and you should be constantly managing your finances so that you can continue to support your business. The building blocks of any organization needs to be built on a solid foundation. The direction you desire to take your business should be upward. If your business infrastructure is designed in a way that cannot support all of your great ideas and growth then you will have a slippery slope. Start on ground level, think about the type of staff you want, or about the type of impact you desire to have in the industry. One you come up with your foundation you can build and add fuel to your engine- the business.
How can you achieve bigger goals?
Achieving bigger goals means you have to think BIG! Expand your business by expanding your goals. Any hiker will tell you that in order to get to the highest point of a mountain it has to begin with putting one foot in front of the other. Set the bar high and stack your business to the perfect height. Achieving bigger goals has everything to do with the amount of work you are willing to put in.
Do you have what it takes?

Plans should lead to action and sustainment puts your business at ease. Having a better organization means you want to be constantly setting goals that are achievable. These steps enhance any business. Therefore, when you think about where you want your business to be, the question is- Do you have enough fuel to keep your business engine running?
