Joe Lau joins me, and we are going deep on four topics that regularly challenge entrepreneurs: struggle, balance, priorities, and focus.
Joe is a serial entrepreneur with six companies under his belt, three of which have sold for millions. A speaker, quality of life coach, and devoted family man, Joe is no stranger to the tightrope entrepreneurs walk with their multifaceted lives.
As an entrepreneur, “failure” will come. Most of us will come to the point that we wonder if we suck and what we can do about it. But business doesn’t have to be a win or lose situation. You win, or you learn. The sooner you get feedback, the quicker you learn, and as long as you see “failure” as learning, you won’t fail.
There are three things an entrepreneur needs: A love of problem-solving, a passion for learning, and a support system. Some of these skills are born, and some are learned; each piece is imperative for entrepreneurial success and avoiding burnout.
There is no such thing as work/life balance. There is, however, work-life integration. You have to prioritize what is important...and when. Aim for a harmonic lifestyle and learn to identify the three stages in entrepreneurship/life.
Be intentional. Prioritize. Joe’s A.P.P prioritization is simple: Align your priorities by attitude, productivity, and people. Run things through the W.W.W. lens. Ask yourself who, what and when?
Quality of life is about enjoying every day. Allocate some time each day for happiness – that doesn’t cost money. Stay focused. You will stand out because you know who you are and what you stand for. Focus on what you truly believe is the right thing and do it, even if you don’t feel like it or if no one else is doing it.
If you can take anything away from Joe and apply it immediately, it is this: Take the assessment. Standing out is knowing your value and maximizing your strength, and delegating your weaknesses. Also, take a look at your day, prioritize and eliminate distractions so you can focus. Do it today; do it now.
Rise. Shine. Impact. Know yourself, know your value.
