You should know the basics of Feng Shui so you will know what to do and you will appreciate the art. Here are some things you need to know about Feng Shui:

    Chi

    In Feng Shui, every living thing has Chi. Chi is an indiscernible energy flow present in your surroundings. Feng Shui seeks to control the energy flow so it can bring good things in the family. Chi can carry good vibes or negative things. Feng Shui experts will fend off negative things by arranging the environment so that only good vibes exist in your living space.

    Yin and Yang

    Yin and Yang is a famous icon. Yin and Yang means balance and harmony. It is used to describe how two opposite things come together to create something good. Yin is usually related to darkness, earth and female while Yang symbolizes brightness, heavens and male.

    April 4, 2013 by usadmin

    Just as we would do a lot of things to keep ourselves healthy such as eating nutritious food and going to the doctor, we should also take necessary steps to keep our business in good condition.

    Yearly Check-up

    Evaluate your business and all its aspects: your business partners, employees, customers, products and services. If you notice some deficiencies, address them accordingly.  Use benchmarks in checking your company’s performance. Do know that employees and customers tend to be silent before leaving. Make sure that you do something to reach out and express your gratitude to people behind the success of your business.

    Budget and Expenses

    We all have admitted the fact that without money, a business cannot go running. Check to see if you revenues are concentrated to only a few customers. Perhaps you can do something to boost your sales. Evaluate your marketing and advertising expenses, and make sure you are gaining more than what you have invested in them.

    Quality Time for Everybody

    You and your employees have been working for at least 40 hours every week. No matter how busy you can get, you and your employees have your own personal lives that should never be taken for granted. All of us need quality time alone or with our loved ones to relax, rejuvenate and reenergize so as to keep our sanity.

    Unhealthy Habits

    In your evaluation of your company, think of unhealthy habits your company is still doing despite the fact that they no longer benefit you. Examples are meetings you usually do that would take long hours or reports that just go unread. Do something to change or avoid those sorts of unhealthy business habits.

    Business Resolutions

    Always stick to your business resolutions. Hire a business coach or create an advisory council. Make sure that you encourage every person in your company to carry out your resolutions to become a better company.
