There gets to a point where you’re so good at doing whatever it is you do in your business, that it can begin to become, well, boring. And while many might think that’s a big negative, and one you should contemplate the entire existence of your business on – it’s not!
Getting bored is a distinctive sign, telling you you’re ready to step things up in your business to the next level! If you’re wondering how to move past this stagnant phase; this is where your past and present brainstorms will come in handy.
Think Back To The Beginning
When your dream of starting a business was an idea on paper, from a few sketches here to a few clippings there. Accompanied by a messy, almost incomprehensible brain storm containing all the ways you would build your business empire. If you have these documents still, unearth them. This is where your passion began, and it may help you see what you’ve missed or haven’t followed through with yet with your company.
Sometimes we get so caught up in the first few hurdles of creating a business; we forget what it was all for, to begin with. Including, how it would give us our ideal lifestyle and what the next steps were going to be to keep pushing the business forward.
For example, you may have built dreams based on outsourcing and delegating most of your business tasks, from outsourcing your accountancy tasks to Pop Business, to delegating most of your core business tasks to remote freelancers. To enable you the freedom and flexibility to live life as you please.
Revisiting the beginnings of your company may help you to reignite the spark that gets you thinking of those big dreams you had.
Commit To Some Research And A New Brainstorm
If your past ideas aren’t bringing too much to the table for you, fear not. Your life has, of course, moved on. Thus what would have been fitting for your life five or ten years ago business-wise, maybe a far cry from the hopes and dreams you may adopt for your business today.
Which leads you on to the next phase of instigating a spark. To turn your mentality surrounding your business from drab to fab, start a brand new brainstorm!
Our excellent ideas are fleeting, and we often put too much trust in our memory to harness our best ideas for later on. Instead, have your brainstorm chart, document, post it etc. ready, for those fleeting ideas, to jot down and begin building a monumental brainstorm.
Take time to reflect on your ideas each day, and pick and choose those you are interested in making actionable goals for. In doing so, you’ll help your business out of its current rut, and begin giving it a new lease of life.
People will often comment that being bored in work or business is just one of the harsh realities of adulthood. And perhaps it is – for them. But it doesn’t need to be this way for you! You choose and shape your own life and business, and sourcing your old, and making your new brainstorms will undoubtedly help you get there, to bring your dreamy ideas to fruition.
