Relaxation Essential To Productivity

Although as entrepreneurs we are driven to succeed, we need to realize that taking time to relax isn't a gift just for ourselves — it's a necessary and indispensable part of performing at our peak. And it helps to keep us sane.
If you want to accomplish true success, you must take your well-being seriously; realizing it’s easy to grow accustomed to an increased level of stress. To avoid getting burned out, don’t just make relaxation an item on your to-do list, but learn to rejuvenate yourself creatively by:
✔ Taking a break — even if just for a minute
Relaxation can take any length of time and whatever forms you find appealing. Simply tensing your muscles and allowing them to relax is an effective way to decompress.
This can be done by finding a quiet place to lie down. Uncross your legs and rest your palms on your stomach. Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Tense every muscle from the top of your head to your toes for a second or two. Then relax and clear your mind for a moment by picturing a serene landscape.
✔ Making relaxation part of your routine
Take 15-minutes each day for reflecting and having some downtime. Achieve clarity by recognizing your successes, letting go of your stress, and deciding on the best step for you to take next.
✔ Turning your frustration into inspiration
When obstacles cross your path, it's much easier to get riled up than it is to calm down. Instead of becoming aggravated about occurrences out of your control, relax and try to spot opportunities. Ask yourself, "How can this situation fuel my success?' You will be amazed at the possibilities you discover.
✔ Saying "no" to less important things
You are in control of your to-do list, and therefore determine what the priorities are. Being able to say no to the less important items is a big part of your overall success, and people will respect your honesty.

Remember, pay attention to any physical or emotional symptoms that arise in response to stress. Then recognize that it’s OK to relax, slack off, or get more sleep. Success comes from attaining your goals — and relaxation has to be one of them — World's Largest Depository Of Barter Information

Reconnecting With Lost Accounts Can Pay Dividends

It takes a considerable amount of time, effort, and money to get new accounts. So when we lose them, it’s time to consider employing a means to get them back.
Go over your records and analyze the good accounts you worked so hard to obtain in the past. You succeeded in getting their business, and then, for whatever reason, these accounts just couldn’t afford to work with you on a cash basis.
Understandably, times change. So look for a way to rejuvenate these valuable old accounts. After all you know each other, which will make it easier to renew the relationship. Move forward by making a new offer … introduce them to the trade exchange concept, where they can pay you in trade dollars.

When you add value to a business relationship by introducing barter, you become an asset to the other party. You're no longer just another vendor. It’s the first step to normalizing the relationship. Getting back those good former accounts can pay you big dividends.

It's A Low-Return World Now

Yes, it’s true … you will get a very low return on your money if you're investing in bonds or CDs. Most of our readers, however, are entrepreneurs and have a different motivation. Like you, they're relying on their own efforts and abilities in their pursuit of building a viable business. Such action is especially important these days with the historically low investment yields.
In conjunction with the building of your business, keep uppermost in your mind the value of focusing on one of the most profitable types of investments available — your bartering efforts.
