1) Harness Your Time
The most valuable commodity an entrepreneur possesses is their time. With an adequate amount of time, an entrepreneur is able to utilize their ingenuity and creativity to turn their ideas into a business. But, without time, ideas never become materialized. As such, David Azzato recommends that you should analyze how you spend your time such as to determine what you spend your time on the most and areas that need more of your time. In some instances, you may discover that you should start your day early. Taking a closer look into how you spend your time may help you to determine if you waste time doing non-essential tasks.
2) Try New Things
Most entrepreneurs experience what can be best described as being a ‘rush’, when they implement their first idea. However, as the sales come in and processes run as they were intended to, that flaming entrepreneurial spirit may start to die down. This can have a negative impact on your progress and your ability to expand your business. Therefore, David Azzato suggests that you should accept the fact that some of the most exciting days of your life are gone, but you still have the power to determine if the most exciting experiences of your life have yet to come. One of the ways you can retain your entrepreneurial spirit is to try new things as well as to encourage your team members to share their own ideas.
3) Stay In The Right Social Circles
Even though it may sound cliché, the old saying ‘show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are’, really is true. Regardless if you like to accept it or not, the reality of the fact is that the people you socialize with, can have a tremendous impact on the person you are. Therefore, David proclaims that entrepreneurs need to spend their time with like minded individuals who are dedicated, open-minded and inspiring. He explains that individuals who fall under this category can help to cultivate an atmosphere of positivity.
