Are you an overworked Small Business Owner? Are you a little crispy around the edges or burnt? When was the last time you took 2 days off in a row and not thought (at all) about your business? Guess what? It’s been over 3 months for me. What about you?
As a Master Business Coach, I see Small Business Owners (SBOs) either overworking and exhausting themselves or creating too much hype about this because they aren’t working on, or in, their business. This is a real and ongoing challenge for most SBOs.
NOTE: Make sure you read the Caution Section – there’s gold there to impact your business performance!
Before we go into what we should be doing, let’s discuss how this overworked and exhausted creeps into our business and impacts our lives too!
Are some of these too familiar? If so, you may already be overworked, exhausted, and/or burnout. I get it, I’ve been there multiple times throughout my career. Over the years, I shared with you about how I was a Class A Workaholic while at corporate and have fought the battle to release that within my own business – old habits die hard!
We SBOs, are clever and try to outsmart ourselves. This isn’t healthy. If we’re working our business, “One more” is our motto. We play this mind game to accomplish more. This is precisely how we become unbalanced. If we continue to behave this way, we become workaholics. Yes, I do speak from experience. I’ve written about this before.
This overworked and exhausted is real. It silently creeps up. Then, when we least expect it, it bites us. We let out a yelp or even lash out.
We are left paralyzed. Our spark is diminished or gone. We have difficulty doing the great work we are called to accomplish. If we can make it that far, we drag our bodies to bed. We are alienating those we love. All of this while we are working harder or having melt-downs.
And it doesn’t matter if this is for our own business or another’s business. We are doing it to ourselves!
If someone was a workaholic in their corporate role and then launches their own business, this commonly becomes the residue we carry into our new business. I did it and I witness this often.
Don’t create the illusion of it’s good or acceptable just because it’s your business. Overworked and exhausted is real.
