For many people, summer is the time to relax and sit back in the sun. For other, those who want to take advantage of the time, find ways to stay productive and charge ahead with their business, idea or startup project.
Manage Your Time
Unlike money, time can not be recovered or gained back which means it’s important that you value the time you have, the free minutes or seconds, to do productive work. We don’t just mean work all day long but work on a project that you are passionate about and love to do (that isn’t work then…it’s your passion).
Stay Active. Be “Un-Lazy”
As Peter Shankman suggests in his recent blog post, “Reach out! If summer means people are chilling, that also means less work for you…” He is completely right which means attend more events within your industry, find more people to network with, host more classes to teach others what you know etc. etc. etc. Stay active!
While all this is a great way to spend your time productively during the summer, we must also ask how does it help you as an entrepreneur, right? Well, for people who can manage their time effectively have a better chance of managing their time and investment when building a startup. That said, it’s critical that you imbibe these skills and show to your future investors that you understand what their time and money mean to you (because you value your time and money too).
Personal hint of the INISMO founders: Be sure to spend time wisely not only during the summer but throughout the year. Get up early and do your basic work such as checking emails, scheduling meetings, phone calls etc. so that you are set for the next few hours and days. Arrange meeting and meetups at coffee shops or small restaurants with clients or partners. Be sure to also invite the closest ones to dinner once in a while. All in all, take time off to relxz but don’t forget that work is important as well (if it’s your passion, then it’s not really “work”). Best of luck!
