Avoiding Business Burnout

Creating a business out of something you love can be very exciting, but it can also create a lot of stress. Forbes has a few ideas that will help you avoid burnout in your business.

Get in the Right Mindset

Entrepreneurship is a marathon, not a sprint. Long-term success depends on your ability to maintain your stamina—you won’t get far if you sprint out of the gate. Instead, pace yourself, respect your limits, and keep the whole “race” in mind.

Establish Fair Expectations

There is no such thing as an overnight success. Good things take time, plenty of research, and lots of tweaking. So be generous—not overly aggressive— when you do forecasting, project planning, and goal setting. Remember that things always take longer than you anticipate.

Make Progress with Small Steps

The big picture is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming, especially when the path from here to there is unclear. But keep in mind that progress comes from moving forward with small, persistent steps. Moving forward is always good, even if it’s a tiny bit at a time.
