Shed A Lot

‘My dog and cat have taught me a great lesson in life – learn to shed a lot!’

- Some good advice from author Susan Scott


Right now, at the end of the year is a good time to assess
Start the New Year clean - without the things you DON’T need pulling you down.

1. What things do I need to delete personally??

  • Unhelpful habits that take up way too much time & money
  • Bad attitudes or over-reactions to problems
  • Extra activities & responsibilities others could do just as well
  • Regrets, grudges that hurt your relationships

2. What things do I need to delete in my business?

  • Products or services that have no potential
  • Dead stock in the warehouse taking up space
  • Processes that are no longer needed, wasting employees’ time
  • More meetings to discuss meetings!
  • Customers who will not, or cannot pay in reasonable time
  • Unused space/vehicles/equipment/unnecessary phone lines or mobiles you are paying for Idle staff who could be put to better use

The Bible says “Examine yourselves” 2 Corinthians 13:5  

As you clear away the rubbish in life you can see where your true issues lie.
Then you have a choice to start the New Year without excess baggage – things sapping valuable time, money and resources.

You can be like the man who visited his doctor and found out he had serious health issues. When the doctor showed him his x-rays and suggested surgery, the man asked, “Ok, but how much would you charge just to touch up the x-rays?”

You can pretend, band-aid over or ignore what needs shedding...

Or, you can decide to change!
