How to treat your business?

That's an odd sort of question. I've been reading all through out my life that business is regarded as an  entity separate/distinct from its owner, even though the latter 'owns' it.

A part of many exercises geared towards defining brand identity, experts resort to personification of the brand. They attach 'values' to brands as if they are humans.

So the question: as an owner how would you treat your business if you perceive it to be your best friend?

You would be yourself.

You would go out of your way to help him if need be.

You would not mind waking up at odd hours to be with him.

You would not mind sacrificing for him.

You would make him feel great in your company.

You would think twice before you hurt him.

You would not even remotely think of exploiting him.

You would give time to listen to him.

You would wish him the best, no matter what state you are in.

You would help him with your time, money and heart.

So, how do you treat your business?

If you look at the sheet, you'll see 4 columns. You'll also see some symbols and words highlighted in green.

So the first 2 columns give you the space to record what you consciously decide to do using these gadgets. They are marked with 'right tick' on top. You can fill these columns well in advance.

The 3rd and 4th columns are meant to record the instances of 'unintentional' or 'u…

David Damron on filling time

Just a few moments back I read this guest post by David Damron (of The Minimalist Path) on ZenHabits. Fantastic read. Simple to apply and see the result for yourself. So, am publishing the same post here. Spread the message far and wide (for it is mighty important) :).

In the post below, forget the word Materialism. It isn't such a 'spiritual' lesson after all; though it could be if you want to take it that way. My point is it might just help you to set some worthy goals for yourself.
