As a business mindset mentor (and a human being), I’m acutely aware of how the upheaval we’re experiencing is affecting our business mindset.
A business mindset is something that needs ongoing attention anyway, during both the good and the bad times
But at times like this, when we’re facing uncertainty, unprecedented challenges and perhaps are stretched by a change in our daily normality (for example, through homeschooling children alongside working or having to be available for vulnerable relatives)
Then we bump up against the idea that working on our business mindset is
- A luxury
- Something to do when things return to normal
It feels less necessary, because it’s more intangible than our other business activities
So we jump to focusing on all the practical stuff on our to do list
We pare back to what we see as the essentials (for example, creating the same amount of content as usual, appearing on all the same platforms with the same frequency)
And so often
(And so erroneously)
But so understandably
(But so unadvisedly)
We ditch our mindset work
And we ditch our other personal success activities
Because we don’t see them as priorities.
And even when we know better
We can still experience the twinge of guilt that it’s self indulgent or think I’ll skip it just this once because it doesn’t matter as much as XYZ
Then we do it again
And find we’ve started down a path that goes in the opposite direction to the path to success, fulfilment and impact that we want to be on.
Does that resonate with you?
If so, I want to remind you today that
Doing inner work is practical
Working on your business mindset is important
Because it underpins all the other work
That leads to your results.
And allows you to approach all the other work with more clarity, confidence and ease.
I have a full post on how to take care of the inner work that will help you keep working and making positive progress throughout this time of uncertainty, disruption and change
