Are you on the right kind of auto-pilot in your business?

Business, For Creatives

Do you go through the same motions everyday when you sit down to work? Does it feel like you’re in a rhythm (good or bad)? Maybe you wonder if you’re spending your time the best way you can. It’s so easy to get into a routine and on auto-pilot in business when we need to “just keep swimming”. Especially when things are busy! 

I want to take this opportunity to ask you – does that rhythm and auto-pilot routine feel good to you? Are you confident in what you’re doing and putting out into the world? Do you feel good about what you’re producing?

Now, it’s natural to strive for growth, but at the core of your days, do you feel like you’re being efficient and energized in your work? If not, it may be time to reassess how you build your work days and shake things up!

Are you on Auto-Pilot?

If you’re in a rut or doing what you’ve always done, how do you assess if that’s still what’s best for you and your business? 

Request client feedback

  • See what they’ve found to be great in your client experience. Understand their needs & wishes!
  • Get on Instagram and ask questions in your stories
  • Send out a questionnaire to current and past clients 
  • Ask questions in Facebook groups you’re part of

Request team feedback

  • If you have a team, ask them what they think could be done better. Where are their pain points? 
  • Do they have ideas?

Do a self-audit

  • Map out your ideal day and week: How could you potentially restructure your day or week to optimize and energize your work hours?
  • Ask yourself where you want to see improvements for how you work 
  • Brainstorm ways you could connect or communicate differently with your audience
  • If you are ready for an audit, get in touch HERE and check out THIS POST (with a Freebie for you!).

Prioritize & test changes

  • Once you have a list of all the changes you’d like to evaluate, see which ones will be realistic and provide the most value to your business. 
  • Then, you can start implementing these new things slowly. Use a month or two to test a few and continue to adjust as needed. 
  • You’ll also be able to see if you have a few areas that need to be larger initiatives. If so, find time to build them into your quarterly goals and plans so they don’t get lost.

If you’re assessing this regularly, you can have a smooth and efficient, energizing type of auto-pilot that will serve you, your audience and your business really well!
