You’ve heard quite a bit about building your business in 90 day chunks. It seems to be the buzz around these days. Don’t get me wrong here – it works! But that is not the end of it.
If you have taken all that time to build a business and the habits that go with it, why would you not continue? To think that you can take an extended hiatus is a mistake – there is maintenance involved.
The great thing is that, if you have put in a serious push and got some traction from the momentum, it takes less effort to continue progressing, but moving forward is still a must.
This is the stage at which you have the time to attend to the tweaks that you were too busy to deal with in the initial stages, but which will make a significant difference to your business. Don’t be tempted to take an extended “well deserved rest”.
Your gains will simply melt away like ice cream in hot sun.
After the initial push has been done, you can slow down the pace and look around a bit more, but you are still riding the horse at a canter, not stopping entirely. The distance you gained with the initial gallop means you have less ground to cover to your destination. If you stop for a while, the horse may be disinclined to continue – it found a great field of grass it prefers to graze on, and throws you when you decide to get back in the saddle – ouch!!
