You’ve been spreading yourself too thin and now these things are telltale signs that you are not working smart. Entrepreneurs are susceptible to stress and we’re probably the most stressed people on the planet. When stress starts to creep in, it will start destroying precious things that you’ve worked hard for without you knowing it.
I know because this had happened to me before and I’ve always heard the same stories from peers around the world. Before as a solo freelancer, I’ve seen how my income declined by doing all the things for my clients and how I unknowingly damaged some aspects of my life and realizing it a bit late. I hit the rock-bottom. The good news is, when you hit that part of your journey, epiphanies suddenly come easier. So I started doing things that helped me climbed back to sanity:
- I started organizing and optimizing my processes. Hired and trained people I can trust and rely on.
- Getting more exercise! (Which led me to accomplishing one of my childhood dreams and that is fighting in MMA match! I lost but finally, I’ve done it!)
- Studied courses I bought long long time ago.
With these steps, I’ve accomplished long overdue goals that used to stress me every time I see it on my Trello board. Like:
These humble accomplishments are nothing fancy but they somehow brought clarity in my journey. All because I learned how to delegate things and optimize my processes. That’s what I want for you and this is where I and my team step in.
