Starting, running, and trying to grow your small business can be one of the most daunting and stressful jobs of all time. It's easy to stay cool and collected in the beginning, but all of the hard work and uncertainties can make a person feel burned out after a while. The goal isn't just to have a successful business, but to also enjoy yourself during this crazy rollercoaster ride.
Take a Step Back
If you feel like you're this close to snapping, take a step back away from it all. Put someone in charge of the day-to-day tasks and take a personal day to let yourself rest, physically and mentally. This means no email, no calls, no nothing! Allowing yourself to have at least 24 hours to away from it all can make you feel re-energized to take on the following day’s tasks.
Learn How to Delegate
Taking on every task and responsibility is a foolish thing to do. You hired your employees for a reason, because they're good at what they do and you trust them to get the job done. Delegate tasks that will allow you to focus on the more important things that need your full attention.
Pick and Choose
Doing all of the work all of the time is not always a good thing. Your priority should be to focus on tasks that will bring you closer to your and the company's goals. If there is a lot of busy work that needs to get done, but you don't have time, you should — delegate!
Don't allow yourself to become burned out — you're the most important piece of the company, so it's time to take a breather.
