There’s nothing quite like the relief we get when waking from a nightmare to find it was all just a dream.
Well, that’s a little like life.
You see our lives today are plagued by stress; I launched a startup this year and often find myself ruminating on its many imperfections. From difficult customers to dodgy generators the issues can hang over me like a cloud.
The relief comes upon realising it doesn’t particularly matter; our next customers might have an problem with the door but I’m probably die because of it… So is it really worth stressing about?
When all is said and done, I have my health, my relationships and the privileged life that we, in the Western world, are fortunate to enjoy.
Whether a business succeed or fails really isn’t important.
Ironically I find this realisation helps the business as it allows me to operate stress free with a clear mind, and make better decisions.
The hard bit? Waking up!
