Find Time to Step into Heart-Based Success!

Finding time to move from where you are to where you would like to be is a good way to describe success.  I like it because it’s a definition that emphasizes the step-by-step nature of the journey.  It’s incremental – and that’s where the power lies!

And what better time to focus on this journey than on a day like today, as we pause on the cusp of summer, and as “Small Business Month” is winding down.  A time for reflecting … and for making new beginnings.

When I think about what is involved in launching and sustaining a successful small business, I often think of a quote that Connie Ragen Green shared some time ago:

“If you’re willing to do for a year what others won’t, you can live for the rest of your life the way others can’t.”

Plugging away, step by step, is the bedrock of your successful, heart-based enterprise (or any enterprise, for that matter).  And what makes heart-based success different is the added ingredient of stepping back and reflecting … always checking in with yourself to assure that your values and energies are in sync with what you do.  It’s a dynamic, ever-evolving give-and-take between your mind, body, and spirit.

If you are a heart-based entrepreneur, your definition of success has to do with both doing and being – not just one, and not just the other.  I am reminded of a wonderfully direct passage I read not too long ago on the Monday Morning Memo:

We stay too busy to think big thoughts. This frantic busyness, this voluntary slavery to the merely urgent is preferred, I think, because big thoughts make us realize that we are much smaller creatures than we like to pretend.

So heart-based success is measured both by persistence and courage.  There’s the steadiness of sticking to the everyday tasks that must be done to thrive … and the brave willingness to think big thoughts – asking the tough questions and making the tough choices.

Are you inspired to find more time and increase your effectiveness, efficiency, enjoyment … and heart-based success?

Then, I invite you to explore Secrets of Heart-Based Time Management – my chapter in the book I co-authored – Stepping Stones to Success!  In it I share my proven system for harnessing the power of your mind, your body and your spirit to help you explore your patterns, clarify your values, identify and prioritize your goals … and create your path for achieving them.

The in depth interviews contained in this book provide practical and heart-based ideas to get you moving as you embrace yourself and your own uniqueness!  As one reader has said:

In fostering a climate of ever-expanding and deepening discovery, Paula’s system offers solutions that are founded in self-knowledge. They have a resonance and a wisdom that I find to be very unusual in the time management sphere.  Jordy Cornog, Canterbury, NH

    “Finding time to move from where you are to where you would like to be…” — what a great reminder that **change takes time**. Whether it’s a change in our life, or in our business, or in ourselves, it’s gonna take time to instill a new habit or let go of an old habit. I think sometimes when we say “I want to change”, we want it to happen overnight, and then we get frustrated when it doesn’t work that way. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Thanks for your comment, Terri. I thoroughly agree! It’s so easy to sabotage our efforts by expecting too much too soon, getting frustrated, losing confidence and momentum, and then, ultimately, giving up.

    So much better to stay grounded and let things unfold naturally and without undue haste or pressure.

    Slow and steady really does win the race!
