Why Slowing Down To Go Faster Is Vital To Your Success

Episode 91


About The Show

Stephen Covey in his book The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People, in habit 7, introduced the concept of sharpening the saw.
What he meant by this metaphor, was that it is vital that we take quality time out and invest in our well being if we are to achieve what it is we set out to achieve with sustainable success.

In today’s fast, busy passed world it is easy to get on the treadmill of tasks thinking that our business is going to stop if we do, or that our business will break if we take a break.

It’s simply not the case.

To be successful in business we need to slow down to go faster.

When you do this you come back more energised and equipped to tackle things in your business with greater effort, more efficiently and with clearer thinking.

I'll be honest with you the thought of going into Word Press used to frighten me.

Not only did I find it confusing and difficult to understand, but the time it would take to get things how I wanted,  coupled with the thought of breaking something was all too much.

I discovered Elementor, which is essentially a drag and drop page builder for Word Press and it's been a game changer for me.

It's how I have built this site and in fact this very post you are reading now.

Elementor is simple to install and operate. It's a simple Word Press plug-in that you can have up and running and start creating and building your site in no time.

I have found the Elementor Support Community to be the best value because you get access to all their professionally designed themes as well so you can really hit the ground running.
