Running a business can be overwhelming. There’s all the work you do to promote your business, then to convert that into actual clients and money and then the actual work that you do to deliver your product or service.
It’s too easy in the day to day running of things to lose track of yourself and go from working a job, to working a job disguised as working for yourself! It often feels more thankless than working for someone else because at least in a job you get paid holiday and sick leave, but when you work for yourself you don’t. Often you feel like you have to just push on through until things get done.
Sometimes that is the right thing to do, other times though taking a break and resting can mean you are recharged enough to do what you need to without compromising your health!
It’s a fine line to walk.
What’s helped me in the times when I am so busy and overwhelmed my brain feels like it can’t stay focussed on a single task is to allow it to be unfocussed for a set amount of time, say 15 minutes, and journal it out.
I allow my brain to just go off on one for a whole 15 minutes and once the time is over some how I’m able to stay on track and get things done with more ease and clarity.
That may be because dumping out thoughts and worries unloads them from my brain, or it may be because I’m not fighting with my brain and forcing myself to do something I can’t yet do, but it works for me.
Try this out yourself the next time you find you can’t focus and let me know in the comments below.
