Are You Having Fun Yet?
Or have you turned your business into "just another day job"? Have you become the taskmaster boss demanding more and better and faster and all of it yesterday? Are you secretly or not-so-secretly putting that kind of pressure on yourself?
Occasionally I show up to myself as this super-demanding boss. The I-need-it-done-now-and-I-don't-care-if-you-were-up-all-night-with-a-sick-child-and-your-brain-doesn't-function kinda boss. THAT is when work starts to feel like work.
Then it's time to ask...
How can you make your work feel like play?
How can you spend less time on the tasks that drain your energy?
How can you laugh more?
How can you dance in the rain, get your hands dirty and feel alive again?
No answers. Just questions. In case you need to ask them too.
