Giving it up for Lent to improve your business

No primary category set

During a call with a supplier today they reminded me that today is Pancake Day and tomorrow is the start of Lent. They asked what I was giving up for Lent which I hadn’t really thought about. In fact truth be known it had totally escaped me that today was Pancake Day.

The conversation did make me think though, it’s a couple of months since people made their New Year resolutions (are you still keeping yours? I’m current on about 50% of mine). Lent is another great time of year to make a commitment to put in place an improvement to your business or working habits.

Lent is traditionally the forty days (not counting Sundays) before Easter and begins on Ash Wednesday which is the 25th February this year. If you decide to give up (or to do) something, then in six weeks at Easter it’s likely to have become an ingrained habit which will continue.

I’ve decided that for the next forty days I’ll give up my morning laziness and get into work by 8.30am. That’s between 30 minutes and several hours early than my normal habits.

What will you be doing for Lent which can make a difference to your business?

    Yep, that’s my ‘lent resolution’ to follow Chris’ example & check up on him to make sure he doesn’t break this one. If he decides to check up on me, knock on the door & have a cuppa. ๐Ÿ™‚
