With the challenges the economy has presented, many small business owners may find themselves working longer hours, trying to do more with fewer resources. This can lead to burnout. How do you personally avoid burnout and (hopefully) establish a good balance between work and the rest of your life?
Let’s first look at what is the real cause of burnout? It’s the feeling that you get when you put in the effort but you don’t feel that you are progressing; you’re just spinning your wheels.
To avoid burnout you must have clarity, focus, & purpose.
A lot of business owners seek me out when they are burnt out. By working with them to clarify their vision & purpose and at the same time creating worthwhile meaningful goals, they now become motivated and re-energized doing the same activities that made them feel burnt out in the first place.
If you stay focused on your goals, you will maintain your motivation and avoid burnout.
