It’s easy to forget the passion that sparked your entrepreneurial journey. Here’s some tips to rekindle it.
Give Back to Your Community
Don’t forget about the joy of giving if you’re in the position to give back this year. You won’t believe how good it feels to give back this season. After all, brightening someone else’s day is a treat in and of itself! This could be for a loved one, a member of your team, or people in need in your community. Social responsibility is not just good for the soul—it’s good for business. And you don’t have to wait until you’re Bill Gates to contribute…there are many small things you can start doing today.
Remember Why You Started
Whether you’re talking about a marriage or a business venture, it’s helpful to take a few moments to think about why you started in the first place. Were you passionate about the work you did? Did you want to find a way to help people with a specific problem? Did you feel a calling to go into this line of work. Something caused you to break off from the traditional path of 9-5 office work and start your own venture. Figure out what that was and remind yourself that those feelings of passion and fulfillment are still possible.
When at work, the more time we spend on the things we love and are great at, the more energy we get from our work, and the less it feels like work. Now imagine everybody in your company working on what they love. It’s possible. It takes effort and we must be intentional to make it happen. When we do, that’s when the magic happens. How close are you to doing what you love 100% of your working time? Challenge yourself: If you’re not at 100%, what 1 thing can you delegate (and to whom) this quarter to get yourself closer to 100%?
Decorations put most people in the mood for a holiday. Festooning your office with reminders that you’re celebrating the season, or the holiday tends to pep your hard workers up. Halloween is no different. Spooky skeletons in the windows, fake spiders, and cobwebs on desks and maybe Frankenstein holding a trick or treat bag at the entrance. Share the fun with everyone.
