LNC business stress – are you feeling it? Everyone encounters a level of stress on a daily basis but the magnitude of stress and how you handle it is what differentiates the successes from burnouts.
And stress is not exclusive to any one group of people. Business owners, high school and college students, new mothers all experience different levels of stress. Let’s explore how to handle your stress and regain balance in your life.
LNC Business Stress Buster #1 Maximize Your Work Time
LNC business stress is real! If you wish you had more time in the day to finish your to-do list, then work on your time management skills. We all have the same 24-hours every day and it’s up to you to manage that time wisely.
One simple solution is to unplug for an hour and focus on one task. No phone calls, no checking weather, no social media, no emails. Choose the most difficult task first and get that off your to-do list. You might be surprised at how little time it took to complete that task and then you’ll feel motivated to do more. At the end of the hour, reward yourself with a short break, then go back into uninterrupted work mode.
LNC Business Stress Buster #2 Don’t Over Extend Yourself with Promises
Do you wake up with joy or dread? Are you excited to get back to work or would you rather ditch work and play hooky? Feelings of dread often occur when you keep saying, “Yes” to everyone without taking into account your own physical abilities.
Of course, we want our clients to be happy but it’s impossible to please everyone and by saying, “yes” all the time, we risk our own happiness. Set boundaries with clients and schedule some much-needed time for YOU on your calendar.
LNC Business Stress Buster #3 Create a Marketing Plan to Gain More Clients
Another area of LNC business stress centers on finances and worrying if you’ll have enough paying clients to cover your bills. It’s a legitimate concern but if you strategize how to attract attorney prospects on a continual basis, you’ll always have people wanting to work with you.
What forms of marketing do you want to use? Which social media platforms? Where are your ideal prospects hanging around online? Utilize your free or inexpensive marketing avenues first before jumping into costly advertising campaigns. And if you’re inexperienced with social media or running a Facebook Ad campaign, outsource it or at least hire someone who can train you in the best practices.
