Freedom versus Processes
Hello. I’ve been running my business for 10 years and for that length of time I’ve been resisting setting up processes because I wanted freedom. In reality, I think I had spent nearly 30 years, following rules and processes and I’d had enough of it. I now regret this because I’ve realised that it is having the opposite effect. If we take doing these videos as an example, the process is based around me coming up with some titles the night before. This means that it doesn’t give my team a chance to get them uploaded and titled in an efficient way. Annoying for them, I think.
Have a watch of the video and then reflect on how you manage the freedom versus processes scenario.
However, I’ve now got someone helping me and she is asking me, where is the process for x and y- in reality, they probably don’t exist.
I have an accountant that is asking me for financial processes as well. It’s hard work to put them in place, but it does make life easier and therefore freedom is a lot more reachable.
I also sleep well and worry less about impending dead lines.
I’d like to ask you whether you have got the processes that you need in life, in your business or your career? What affect would having them have? Would you have freedom?
Here’s the solution:
- Get some help from an expert
- Ask for help
- Do a bit at a time
These things give you the freedom to do other things which free up your time and get you success
I thoroughly recommend these solutions. However – if you need any help with your thought processes to enable you to do this, let me know and we can talk about whats getting in your way – it’s usually you- I expect you know that.
See you next week
