I am reminded, every time I go in for a health check up, how important and precious our good health is.
As business owners we take time to plan for the future of our Enterprise. We check the vital signs, marketing, staffing, finances, inventory, etc, to make sure each part of the whole is in good shape. Each segment is needed for successful growth, but sometimes we forget the single most important part of the business, the owner.
Like every other part of the business, the good health of the owner is critical. In the case of most small businesses, the owner is the key to the future. Without a healthy owner to lead, the business will fail.
It may be time consuming and perhaps expensive, but both the time and dollars for an owner health check up must be budgeted every year.
As an individual, who knows from personal experience, the value of a preventive check up, I recommend an annual physical and a colonoscopy. The colonoscopy sounds a lot worst than it is and it saved me from developing cancer several years ago.
Stay well, you owe it to yourself, your family and your business.
While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.
