The diary of Biznessvirgin : Be Patient not comfortable

Business diary

In 2017, i learnt to become effective with my tasks, i always got everything that mattered done in good quality time, However, recently, this has been a struggle.

After reviewing my performance in the first quarter of 2018, i realized i was not getting much done ; i delegate more now (this works really well for me) so i can get ample time to handle really important tasks but somehow am not even able to complete my regular tasks anymore….was trying struggling with this when I had a conversation with a dear friend, Femi .

Femi and I got talking about how there are processes to attaining certain heights in life and that these processes take time. During our discussion, he made a statement that hit me hard, He said, “hmmm, while we must be patient, we must never get too comfortable, that can be really dangerous”; this was a light bulb 💡💡💡moment for me !!! With this one statement, my friend simplified my issues and proffered solution .

It was in that moment i realized that truly , i had become laid back. I was so patient following processes that i had become comfortable taking so much time to complete tasks.  Immediately, I spotted changes i made that needed to be adjusted and i will like to share

1) I stopped writing weekly/ daily to do lists and when i did i hardly referred to or updated them; this meant most times my work was either half done or not touched at all.

2) I began to procrastinate more so again many things were left undone.

3) I was spending more time with friends and i had not found a way to balance out that playtime with worktime so when it was time to work i was exhausted from play.

4) I watched less of my favorite TV shows; din’t realize how much these TV shows impacted me . I always it assumed it was just TV but now i see most of these shows keep me excited, inspired and help me develop in mental capacity and knowledge/information .These TV shows include Shark Tank, Dragons’ Den, Would I Lie to You?, The Graham Norton Show, Chopped, Pointless, QI….. Now TV time is just as important to me ( F.Y.I – TV does not have to be important to you, basically depends on what rocks your boat).

My new note to self and other entrepreneurs who get to read this is simple and straight forward

– Its important to be patient and thorough in business so you don’t end up a mediocre, however, you must never get so patient you become laid back and stuck in a position for longer than is necessary.  In other words ,too much patience can get you too comfortable and when you get too comfortable, you get stuck in a position for too long.

One thing i love about writing diaries of a Biznessvirgin is that it helps me discover more about myself ;i hope it helps you the same way. In the end, its all about growth – Personal, Financial, Business, Spiritual, Emotional……


Yours Truly,
F.O (The Entrepreneur)
