Oi you! It's time to get off your butt & start your veterinary business moving in 2015

Oi You

Have you made a less than flashy start to 2015 in your veterinary business?

I've just realised that it’s nearly February... what the $%& happened to January?

I took a three week holiday over the Christmas break and spent it somewhere with such poor internet reception it wasn’t really worth attempting to connect – so I didn’t...for three whole weeks.

Interestingly even though I wasn’t online, the internet didn’t break nor did Vetanswers disappear down a black hole.  In fact most of you probably didn’t even notice I was gone as I’m sure you were busy with your own plans.  Which is exactly how it should be and a nice reminder that the world still continues to turn even if we're not busy being...busy! 

Just like you probably did, I had an incredibly busy and stressful 2014 so a three week break from all things internet, social media included, was a welcome respite and I have come back relaxed and well rested (and full of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc - although I’m not sure if that last bit is necessarily such a good thing). 

Now this is the spot where I should be saying that I’m all fired up and ready to dive into an awesome 2015!

But .... I’m not.  To be completely honest I still feel a bit like this:

When I should be feeling like this:

Don’t get me wrong – it’s not that I’m not happy to be back because I am.  Three weeks away from home was long enough (and I think the NZ wine industry was getting a little worried that their stocks were starting to dry up) and I’ve got some exciting plans for Vetanswers in 2015.  I just can’t seem to get myself moving...well not very quickly anyway.

So is it just me...or are you also moving at a less than impressive pace?  Are you not so much as leaping into 2015 as sedately heading in the general direction...sort of like a sloth?

You can click here to watch 2 minutes of sloth 'action' – which I can relate to.... (maybe these guys have also spent 3 weeks lying on a beach in NZ, drinking  the local tipple?)

Do you feel like you need a good kick up the butt to get fired up and launched into the New Year?

So what are we going to do about it?

If you have no idea what I'm talking about and you’ve already leapt gazelle-like into your business for 2015 then I need you.

I would really like to hear hear your suggestions, tips and ideas on how I can move myself from my current ‘Sloth sitting in a swing chair’ state into something more like my usual, admittedly slightly hyperactive but normally high achieving state.  

All suggestion will be carefully considered and I’m more than happy to share the ideas with others of you out there also suffering from a severe case of over-relaxation!   

Sloths unite! We can make 2015 the year our businesses soar!

....If I can just get out of this swing chair....
