SMJA: Numbers

In a busy hectic schedule I often forget that to make a decent run, there is a lot of good habits that have to be there.  Anyone who went jogging after a night of partying knows what I’m talking about. I’m grateful that my business is really picking up steam these days but I cut corners on a healthy lifestyle.  One of these little habits is drinking enough water. As I meet more and more clients in small cafés I drink less water. As I did my first run in warm weather this year in Montreal I noticed the effect.

The lesson is this…

When things go bad we are so busy trying to keep our head above the water that sometimes we don’t see the next wave coming…

When things are going well, we just forget that sometimes more sales can equal less profits

Make it a (good) habit to check your numbers regularly. Ask your accountant to help you produce a one page financial dashboard to glance over every 2 weeks or so…
