Recharge Your Batteries
Today's topic has two distinct meanings. The first meaning – the literal one – refers to being prepared for the day by always having your cell phone batteries charged. Many small businesses operate exclusively with a mobile phone. If your battery is run down, you are unable to take advantage to downtime to return calls, schedule appointments, etc. and you risk looking unprofessional if a client is expecting a returned phone call.
This is easy to prevent by establishing a routine of recharging your cell phone each day at the same time and place. For example, I leave my charger on my kitchen counter above the dishwasher. Every time I start the dishwasher, I also recharge my phone.
The second meaning – the figurative one – means that to stay organized, you must take care of yourself. If you are feeling run down or burned out, you will also feel disorganized. No matter how busy you are, you will be more productive if you take regularly scheduled time to nurture yourself and your loved ones.
