Or are you a slave to your business?
One of the main drivers for people wanting to start their own business is to ‘be their own boss’. Not having anyone scrutinising your day-to-day activities, the hours you work or whether or not you hit your targets, can seem hugely appealing.
The feeling of being the master of your own destiny is the ultimate goal for many. Yet talk to the majority of business owners or directors, and they probably wouldn’t describe themselves as feeling ‘in control’.
Why? Because all too-quickly, and often without you even noticing, a business can start to control YOU, rather than the other way around.
Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?
- You set out at the start of the day with a list of jobs to complete but get to the end of the day without having crossed off a single one.
- You know you have big business decisions to make, but you are too busy doing everyday tasks that you never seem to find the time to think about them, never mind take any action.
- You get to the end of the week and find yourself unsure as to what you have actually done or achieved.
It may well be that you’ve become a slave to your business!
There are many dangers of this – not least that you may feel unable to take time away from work without the whole thing crumbling down, placing a huge amount of pressure on your shoulders.
So how can you start to redress the balance?
First thing’s first, you have to come to the realisation that there is a problem. Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to recognise you have reached this point, and often, it takes something to go wrong or a ‘crisis point’ to be reached before the realisation truly dawns.
Thankfully, from here, the only way is up…
