Lazy Successes

For those of you who know me, it won’t come as a surprise to learn that I am a very driven person. I actually love working, and believe the harder I work, the more results I will get. I’m sure this is no great revelation to anyone.

But for the past two weeks, I’ve had a series of minor maladies. Things like this really annoying irritation going on in my left eye that feels like I have sand or an eyelash in it all the time. Not painful, not life-threatening, just an aggravating distraction.

As a result, I seriously don’t want to work. At all. I feel like I’ve been doing the bare minimum for a few weeks now. But the weird thing is that I’ve been seeing more results – people scheduling appointments, more clients, and new events. Puzzling.

Upon reflection, I can think of three reasons why this is happening:

  1. I’ve focused on getting only the essentials done, and have left the “fluff” behind.
  2. I’ve said no to taking on new things.
  3. I’ve relaxed and taken care of myself.

Many of you who read my blog have experience with developing a “less is more” strategy, so please share your wisdom with everyone here. I’d write more, but I have to go take a nap and put a warm compress on my eyes.

Founder Mary Cravets started Simply Get Clients because she saw small business owners complicating growing their businesses. Or falling victim to the "build it and they will come" myth. So she developed the simple structure to cut through all the noise of social media, "experts", online funnels, advertising and more to focus on the central problem of business owners: getting more clients. And you know what? There is NOT a one-size-fits-all solution.
