Hey everyone, have you ever just had one of those days where you are just feeling burnt out? Where it seems getting to the office is even a challenge in the morning and nothings seems to be going right.
Well I just want to tell you that I've been there and feel ya! Business fatigue is common in entrepreneurs, and never hit us the same way. For me, I start to feel it when I'm just not happy at the office. Most days I love going to work and helping my clients measure their success and minimize their taxes, but every once in the while I just feel like taking a nap! It's when I start feeling that way that I know I'm fatigued.
Business fatigue is no joke. It can take precious time from your busy day, it can cause client or customer problems, it can create a work environment that's not conducive to productivity. So on daily basis I always try to think about my family and why I’m getting up to go to work. On a weekly basis I talk to our employees and my peers, to find out different ways that we can help our clients and introduce new ways of being creative with our services. Finally on an annual or semi annual basis, I take a pause. I relax, I reflect, & I reset by either taking a vacation, or just even a night away. We as entrepreneurs need to take personal time to take care of ourselves. So if you have a hobby, or just like hitting the gym, make sure to schedule these things just like you do a client meeting.
These are some of the things that I do to help me get over that business fatigue. I hope this helps!
