You And Your Business Need A Change of Pace

Do you ever feel bored in your business?  Do you ever just have a hard time concentrating and getting to the mounds of work you have to do?  Do you ever get a little feeling of resentment that seems to build a little more each week because you aren’t quite where you want to be in your life or your business?

Well, the first thing to realize is you aren’t alone. It’s been said that the entrepreneur is the loneliest person on the planet.  So, you’re in good company.

There are a lot of reasons you might be having these types of feelings about your business.  And, there are some simple solutions that will get you back on track and feeling like the savvy, happy, excited entrepreneur and business owner you know and love (and that your clients know and love).

Sometimes you just need a change of pace to make things look and feel fresh again.  The good news is that change of pace doesn’t need to be anything drastic or dramatic.  Many times, something as simple as moving your work area or space somewhere different for a day can spark your creative juices and give you a change in perspective.  Other times, it might be something as simple as taking a 3-day weekend to unplug, relax and allow your mind sometime to rejuvenate.

It’s important for you to figure out what it takes to snap you back into focus and productivity, but one thing is for sure, and that’s that it usually will require a change of some kind.  Usually a temporary change will be enough to jolt you into s new attitude and a new perspective.

As an entrepreneur or small business owner, you may tend to just keep plugging away, working through it, getting things done, and keeping your nose to the grindstone, but in the long term, that will create burnout, more frustration and long-term, it will result in you not producing your best work.

This phenomenon creates the old snowball effect, you keep working and plugging away not feeling focused but tired and uncreative, which makes you more tired and unhappy about what you’re doing and how you’re feeling, which creates more feelings of being tired and frustrated, which just continues to grow…until you do something different. Like take a break and refresh, renew your passion and optimism and love of what you do.

Everything will come easier once you relax, refresh and refocus.

You’ll be amazed at the results!
