A number of Edgeware presenters, and writers on entrepreneurship generally, emphasise the value of persistence, of constant striving and application to your business goals. But if you feel you’re not strongly inclined this way, how might you develop this core element of your approach to your business?
One strategy worth exploring is that of Small Rewards
. Regularly set yourself small, achievable goals – daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly – and when you’ve achieved one, reward yourself. Rewards needn’t be lavish and over the top, but they should be meaningful to you.
Over time, this practice becomes internalised – a habit. The cycle of goal-setting and rewards reinforces a positive sense of self-efficacy, the sense that you can *get stuff done* – and embeds the value of persistence in your day to day business (and personal) practice.
