Here are some great techniques to keep you on the path as a Start-up founder.

Check-in with yourself.
At any given moment when starting and growing a business, you need to take time to check in with yourself – bring your attention to what you’re thinking and feeling right, without judging it. Once you reflect and check in, you can now make a more informed choice based on your self-reflection.

Create an effective daily schedule.

  1. Start your day with your most important work
  2. Map out your perfect daily schedule according to your personal “productivity curve.”
  3. Use “time blocking” to switch from being reactive to in control of your time
  4. Set your availability to the minimum you can (10–15 minutes)
  5. Follow your flow (of both tasks and energy)

Hire people that are smarter than you.
Hiring people who are smarter than you is an art form and a task that takes practice. However, your business will grow faster if you have intelligent, skilled people in every sphere. Not only will your business benefit having a team of people you trust will ultimately allow you to focus on growing, increasing your productivity exponentially, and creating a balance in your work and life.

Structure your goals:
Great goals go beyond SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant to your interests, and time-bound). They have particular breakthroughs that help provide progress – which hopefully will give you the space to breathe if you start with well-defined purposes that will allow you to realise and celebrate success.
