Making A Commitment:

It’s a common buzzword in today’s society that you definitely have heard before. It has gained a lot of notoriety as we started living in a hustle and bustle world where everyone is constantly “on the grind”. If you’re always on top of your career, social life, personal relationships, leisure and travel, and health, then you are productive — and tremendously so by today’s standards.

But with all the hype around productivity, most people just tend to focus on being productive and overlook the essential underlying factor, which is self efficacy.

In the words of Albert Bandura,

“Self efficacy is the belief in one’s ability to influence events that effect one’s life and control over the way these events are experienced.”

In other words, Bandura speaks about the power of belief. As business owners, it’s important to believe in our capabilities and skills to perform specific tasks aimed at entrepreneurial outcomes and success. Therefore, self efficacy is fundamental to business success.

On the other hand, productivity has been abused and misconstrued by people. It seems that it’s equated to getting a lot of things done, which simply isn’t the case. Productivity has always been about doing less but earning more. It’s about accomplishing the things that are most valuable to your time and goals.

While productivity creates room for either a failed or successful outcome, self efficacy helps you avoid burnout and stress to reach those outcomes. It also builds resiliency so you could survive those outcomes, whatever they may be, and move on to the next productive task.

Like most anything else, self efficacy can be learned and practiced. Low self efficacy will lead to mediocre results; too much self efficacy might lead to unrealistic expectations.

There are three ways in which you can develop self efficacy:

1. Experience. Create an environment that promotes healthy self efficacy. You can balance success and personal and professional growth by working on tasks you enjoy or excel at while also trying out new opportunities and learning new things.

2. Learning. People learn in a social context. Watch and learn from other people as they’re performing certain tasks so that you can model behaviors.

3. Trial and error. They say failure is the best teacher. By trying things out for yourself, you can test behaviors and patterns that will help you understand the task and instill the best practices in your work.

Why Sleep?

When you’re running a business, there’s just so much to do. So when someone tells you to slow down and rest, your first response might be to scoff and roll your eyes and say, “Rest? Who has time for rest? I’ve gotta grow my business!”

And you do. You have to grow your business. And that’s exactly why you need sleep.

Sleep is an essential function that allows your mind and body to recharge. Sound sleep can also help keep you healthy. Without enough sleep, your brain won’t function properly and that impairs your abilities to concentrate, think clearly, and remember stuff. And guess what — running a business requires you to concentrate, think clearly, and remember stuff!
