This is one of a series of brief posts to get you thinking about enjoying business more. Feel free to comment.
For the majority of my clients, there is usually one of three main reasons why they aren't enjoying their business as much as they should, assuming that they have a business, of course. When there isn't enough money coming in to cover the bills then other steps are needed. Otherwise, here is the third of the key issues:
It just doesn't seem important enough
You're in control, business is booming and you've cracked the 'earn more, work less' conundrum but...it's all just too boring. Sure the money's good, but it's got to a point where you're buying things for the sake of it. Deep inside you feel dead.
Where has the challenge gone? Where is the excitement? What is the point of it all? Why shouldn't you just sell up and go and do something completely different instead?
The consequences of this can be extreme mood swings, lethargy and possibly even the pursuit of 'unhealthy distractions' to alleviate the boredom. This may not impact the business itself, although there is often scope for the team to suffer a drop in performance due to the erratic nature of the leadership.
I'd be interested to know how many of you recognise this, in others if not in yourself.
