Don’t run out of CEO mojo. Read the 5 ways you can keep your mojo in check.
I ran out of CEO mojo. It stopped me from ending Q3 as strong as I wanted to.
When I asked myself what I needed to change in order to finish the year out strong and not run out of energy this time, 5 ideas came to mind.
Here they are:
1. Hiring – Today, I’m onboarding a new employee, which I’m super excited about. Last quarter, I made an offer to a potential candidate and it didn’t work out, so I continued to push myself without filling the position, which was a huge mistake. Looking back, having the position filled would have been helpful.
A CEO’s job is to give away pieces of their job through every stage of business, so eventually all you’re focusing on is moving the vision of your business forward. I’m so excited for this new addition to my team and to see how my business grows because of it. As I’ve mentioned, when you hire you make more money, save yourself time and can serve at a higher capacity. All great things come from it.
2. Delegating – I need to rework what is currently on my plate and on my existing team’s plate. I’m all about delegation and as we bring on someone new, having a better understanding of what my team is currently working on has helped as we look at what can be eliminated, automated or delegated to the new person. This thinking is game changing not just for me, but my team too as it helps them to stay in the mindset of what I’m working on adds value to me, my position, and the company.
3. Finding out where I’m the bottleneck – Not having enough mojo helped me to realize how much has to go through me for approval, so this is already in the works of changing. Give your team the resources they need to be successful always and watch how much they can figure out on their own with no help from you. You have to trust those you’ve hired to do the job you hired them to do. Write that down as a CEO mantra.
4. Taking better care of my body – I take CEO Breaks often, but I haven’t been as active as I once was. I went back to my norm, working out 5-6 days a week, eating my organic healthy foods and drinking more water. I feel better already. I also added some supplements to my diet to help my health. Game changer.
5. Owning my 7-figure CEO role (yes, I even need reminding of this) – I’m building a 7-figure business and I have to own what a 7-figure CEO does. I’ve been saying yes to a lot of things lately and not respecting my boundaries. I have to remember, boundaries and mindset are key. Remember when you protect your boundaries you’re making room for what truly matters.
As we start to venture into a busy quarter, you have to own what’s working and make changes accordingly. Keeping yourself strong spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally will help your business be better. I always look at this time as setting the foundation for what’s to come in the new year.
